Silken Wool Home Gallery
HARDYSTON — The new 2,100 square-foot Silken Wool Home gallery on Rt. 94 in Hardyston is a study in elegance. Along with an extensive collection of handcrafted Persian and Oriental rugs, the gallery also offers a plethora of handmade interior furnishings and art by American craftsmen.
The gallery also offers fine gifts for all occasions, a magnificent collection of glass works, metal art, wall sculptures, and hand-made lighting from renowned artisans from around the country. The gallery also stocks high-quality bedding.
The grand opening was officiated by Hardyston Deputy Mayor Leslie Hamilton, who, during her opening remarks said, “It’s wonderful to have people that are willing to invest in our town. This store is great from the unique artwork, beautiful glassware, and exquisite rugs to the wonderful jewelry, which are art in themselves.”
Hamilton went on to say, “This store will be an asset to all. There are gifts galore that you can’t find anywhere else in Sussex County. If you want something different, this is the place to come.”
According to gallery owner Bruce Ghorbanian, the company is a “purveyor of luxury home décor, exquisite bedding, fine rugs, and artisan lighting.”
After 11 years operating in Warwick, N.Y., Ghorbanian came to realize that many of his clientele were coming from the south, particularly from Highland Lakes, Vernon, and Crystal Springs in Hardyston. Opening another gallery in that general area just seemed to make sense. “Even though the economy is bad, people are always looking for quality. There’s always somebody who wants to buy something beautiful for their home or for a wedding gift,” said Ghorbanian.Acknowledging that the gallery’s offerings are clearly high end, Ghorbanian says that people both demand and appreciate quality goods, even though they may be somewhat pricier.
Their vast collection of Oriental rugs consists of tribal, modern and one-of-a-kind silk pieces. Silken Wool Home also offers rug cleaning and repair services.
They are located at 3672 Rt. 94, a little over a mile north of Rt. 23 and just north of the entrance to Crystal Springs. Visit their website at www.silkenwool.com or call the gallery at 973-209-0404 for more information.
