"Magnificent Rug!"

At the time, I did not realize how lucky we were that it was impossible to find a living room rug locally. I finally discovered Novica online and immediately found this perfect rug: gorgeous colors; amazing quality & workmanship; very reasonable price; and best of all, we got to support the talented artist who made it!

Best Uses
  • Perfect wall hanging or floor rug

Sian

I recently made my first Novica purchase, one of Alfredo's runners... it is so beautiful, it really exceeded my expectations and we're already looking at other designs to buy for the rest of the house. The workmanship, quality and richness of the rug is a delight.
