After a twenty year career in the antique rug business, carpet and designer liaison Linda Mettel has joined Nazmiyal Collection. Before joining Nazmiyal, Mettel worked at the prestigious Stark/Darius company in Manhattan, building long-term relationships with many prominent designers. At Stark and Darius Mettel gained a deep understanding of the design, color and history of antique rugs. Over the years Linda’s close relationship with the leading designers earned her the experience that makes designers and clients feel comfortable knowing she has a natural gift for finding exactly what they are looking for.
With a dedicated following of designers, Mettel plans to expose her clients to the thriving and energetic Nazmiyal Gallery. Linda is more than equipped to lead designers through Nazmiyal’s exceptional inventory. In a place marked by positive energy, a laid-back atmosphere and a passion for carpets, she is confident her designers will feel right at home.
At Nazmiyal, Linda hopes to refine the showroom in a female tour de force while providing clients with outstanding carpets at very fair prices. The potential for growth is unlimited as designers are exposed to the beauty of this new inventory. With exceptional pieces at competitive market prices, Mettel is changing the notion that one carpet has to consume the budget for an entire room. By teaming up with Nazmiyal, she sees a win-win situation for everyone.
In the current times, Mettel says people are looking for comfort and tradition to be brought back into the modern stories that are being created today. Carpets fit this bill in so many ways offering a timeless blend of contemporary and traditional elements that Linda encourages. Mettel says she’s a firm believer that antique rugs are coming back bigger than ever as they hold such an important place in today’s design mix, not only softening spaces, but providing a sense of mystery. Today, it’s important for the consumers to know they are getting the best value, and at Nazmiyal it’s a given.
