Nazmiyal Collection (nazmiyalantiquerugs.com/), one of the premier antique rug galleries in New York City, is today becoming the leading international dealer for antique rugs worldwide, according to Hali Magazine, the trusted source of information for collectors and buyers of antique rugs and textiles. In a recent interview with Hali magazine’s editor, Ben Evans, Jason Nazmiyal, proprietor of Nazmiyal Collection, discussed his commitment to selling exclusive decorative antique carpets in a market that is quite depressed—and how it has translated into success for the company.
“My father always said to me, buy in a bad market and sell in a good one. That is what I am doing”, explains Jason Nazmiyal to Hali Magazine. “As I am selling a lot, I can buy a lot, and rugs from all around the country eventually find their way to me, so I am buying well.” As Evans points out in his recent article, the internet has had a profound effect on Nazmiyal’s business. “In fact the discipline of being constantly open for its worldwide customer base has instilled the business with a realism about the market,” wrote Evans.
Nazmiyal’s appeal to buyers and collectors comes from its outstanding catalogue. Nazmiyal’s online exhibition includes the gallery’s complete inventory of 2000 pieces including a collection of antique rugs that were designed by some of the greatest names in the art world, such as Dali, Kandinsky, Picasso and many more. From the ustadans of ancient Persia to Scandinavian modernists to French expressionists and European architects and designers, the rugs in this collection may vary in size, color and design, but all are desirable from a decorative and collectible standpoint.
