Traffic Patterns

We’ve been hard at work here. The bit of spring weather we had got us in the mood to make some big changes around here.  The first of many projects was to move our rug gallery from the front of the showroom to the back by the French doors. 

As you may remember, our rug gallery was in the southwest corner of our building.

  

And the French doors are located at the southeast corner of the building... (the French doors are behind Cody and to the left of the Merapi Cabinet).

But as you know, you have to really live in a space to see how it flows and in our business... how the traffic flows. And that’s what we did.  After being in our new building for almost 2 1/2 years we watched the traffic.  We paid attention to where in our showroom our clients spent their time, where items were selling from and we watched the traffic patterns.  We decided that the rugs needed to be moved to keep the flow constant.

But what a huge undertaking!  Luckily, we have strong Cody, Brian and Rudy to help us out.

First, we had to fold and move all of the rugs from one area to the other.

Then, of course, the guys had to take down the rug rack holding many of our 6x9 rugs.

And put it back up in its' new location.

Lots of help and two days later our spaces were put together.  Nan worked her magic at the front of the showroom by placing the Belgium-inspired pieces in the natural light that pours in in the afternoons.

We love seeing our rugs in their new space.  The windows, the doors, and the skylights really make their colors and patterns pop.  

 

It doesn't hurt that we get to listen to the relaxing sounds of water running through the fountain as we sit and chat about our rugs.

We hope you like this new change (and many more to come).  Stop by to enjoy a coffee or tea with us and let us know what you think of these changes.
