New and vintage rugs
Molly Patterson, owner of the new rug shop Perch 313, 640 N. Old Woodward, Suite 202, Birmingham, said, “A definition of the word ‘perch’ is a place to land, sit, or rest. We invite you to find your place of rest, while admiring the beauty and message of times past.” Perch 313 offers hand-selected and lovingly curated vintage rugs, textiles, and unique home décor, with an emphasis on rugs and textiles that are high quality and sourced from trusted friends in Turkey – and then professionally cleaned to be ready for their new homes. “Vintage rugs sold by Perch 313 have all been selected due to their high quality, and have been handmade, hand knotted with wool on wool or wool on cotton. Wool is highly resistant to wear and contains lanolin which is a natural stain repellent,” Patterson writes on her website. “Please remember these are vintage rugs, imperfections and wear are part of their unique charm.” Perch 313 offers concierge services and in-home consultations, and Patterson encourages shoppers to visit Perch 313 Facebook and Instagram pages for new arrivals and to book appointments.
