I’m having a marathon rug week in London as of Sunday to celebrate #rugnroll and my amazing Hali family! To all friends, colleagues & clients there, give me a shout so we meet up. #Repost @halimagazine with @get_repost ・・・ @hadimaktabi speaker at the HALI London Symposium @courtauld and the HALI Fair @mallgalleries says: . ‘HALI has been the bible for the antique carpet and textile world as far back as I can remember. It will be a pleasure to participate in HALI London as the variety and richness of the academic, cultural and exhibition programs is far greater than anything else I can recall in the last twenty years. I look forward to seeing many of my friends and colleagues at HALI London to celebrate the 40th anniversary of this beautiful publication.’ . HALI London, 24-30 June 2019.

Something tres cool is in da house today! Enjoy this unique octagonal 8-sided antique rug. I never imagined something like this existed because it’s technically very tough to execute. A presentation piece or a ceremonial carpet, this engineering masterpiece may have been woven either as a (large) aristocratic horse cover or (I believe) as a rich shrine donation. Why? The remarkable shape would serve ideally well as the mother of all saddle rugs, dangling down either side of a noble stallion. Alternatively, the octagonal shape matches the 8-sided burial chambers found in the mausoleums of the great and the holy across the Middle East, and particularly in north Persia where this stunning beauty was created. Think Dome of the Rock in Jerusalem, Madraseh Olya in Ferdows, the royal Safavid Shrine at Ardebil, the Ilkhanid mausoleum of Oljeitu in Soltaniyeh and so many more. #hadimaktabi #specializinginawesome #antiquerugs #octagon #octagonal #eightarmstoholdyou #rugnroll

Khosrow & Shirine totally rocking it in this heartwarming architect’s house in Boston! This project was one of the more aesthetically rewarding ones we have recently handled. It was tough finding an antique tribal rug with a story to tell -&- the size and colours to match. But Mission: Impossible is what I do for a living ⚡️✨💥☄️ #hadimaktabi #philippestarck #missionimpossible #rugnroll #shahnameh #bookofkings #lori #gabbeh #antiquerug #tribalart #tribalrug #boston #massachusetts #architecturephotography #interiordesign #interiordecorating #interior_design #decor #interiorstyling #interiorinspo #onlineshopping #globalshipping #fivestarservice
The Gallery is open again today and the Flying Carpet Sale rocks on with this gorgeous antique Isfahan. It is extremely finely woven on a silk foundation. The splendid spirals and amorous turquoise are lifted from the masterpieces of Safavid architecture that have given so much inspiration across the centuries to the artists of my ancestral hometown. #hadimaktabi #flyingcarpetsale #yalla #redcarpetstyle #spiral #spiralcurls #safavidart #beirutshopping #onlineshopping #rugnroll

Ancient tools used for weaving rugs still are used today. There is only one way to weave a handmade rug, and that’s staying true to craftsmanship, teamwork, and lots of hard work! . . . #downtownlibertyville #chicagonorthshore #libertyville #mainstreetlibertyville

H for Hadi? Not really. Last night I posted a story showing a tag on a rug that my grandfather had sold back in the 1940s or 1950s. A gentleman in Sweden 🇸🇪 just sent me this photo of a Saph group prayer rug in his collection and that bears this old tag! Many thanks sir! H. Maktabi & Bros was the family company as it was active between the 1930s & 1950s. While not the eldest of his siblings, my grand old man was the dynamo that pushed the family biz forward. All the way to the Arctic Circle apparently. The tag indicates this old carpet was sold in the mid 50s, just when Elvis was starting to shake his pelvis and rock n roll was born out of the blues. The Free Zone premises were acquired circa 1951 and the company name changed circa 1957. #rocknroll #rugnroll #ruglife #hadimaktabi #generations #tagyoureit #letsplaytag #familyhistory #familyhistorymatters #familybusiness #grandpa #familypride #RIP #khodarahmateshkone #Allahyerhamo #bros #freezone #sweden #swedenart #swedenimages #swedenshots #swedishhousemafia

I don’t post many pictures of myself but I came across this special picture and had to share. My grandfather, Hassan Hekmatnejad, was and still is a pioneer in the art of handmade rugs. He completed the first two sided rug with completely different patterns on each side. He was the first to popularize the elegant dome design seen on churches and mosques in Iran on a Carpet. A visionary on how you can create numerous different rugs from one design by switching only two simple things, too long to explain on a Instagram post, but they are simple 😃. His infectious love and passion for this art form gave him the opportunity to live out all his dreams. Two generations later and now in America, I have continued the path he started out with the same passion for this art form. I have always said this, even if I wasn’t in this business I would be a collector. I love all types of art but rugs are the only art form that can be used and was initially made to be used for every day life functions. When rugs were created it was made so that people could sleep on something soft (bed), to eat on the floor with ease (table), to sit on a warm floor (couch). Which other art form can boast all those functions? And instead of just putting down sheep skin, human ingenuity and creativity used designs and colors to create a warm and inviting space. I am in love with what I do. Do something that truly makes you happy! . . . #love #family #passion
They last and last people!! Don’t worry about your dog, cat, or kids. Walk on them, dance on them, live your life on them, because trust me these rugs will outlast us all. This rug was woven during the 5th century B.C. I’m sure it has seen it’s fair share of spills! Buy a good handmade rug and enjoy it for as long as you want. . . . #forever #chicagohome #chicagointeriordesigners #interiordesigner #photooftheday #homeinspo #arearug #handmade #behappy #rug #ruglife #rugnroll #interiorlovers #interiordetails #walkonit
