I have been meaning to visit Cadrys for a while now and was reminded of their beautiful collection when I spotted one of their rugs at The Aparttment opening. David, Robbie and I headed into Edgecliff to meet with Jared Cadry and to see their stunning collection for ourselves. We were given the most in-depth and informative tour of both the Cadrys classic collection and their new collection at the Contemporary Cadrys showroom. Let me tell you, this family-owned business sure knows their stuff. Their passion is clear and somewhat addictive!
It was amazing to see their team rolling out rug after rug, while its history was explained and we were allowed to touch and explore each piece. Some of the rugs we looked at were upwards of $40,000 and works of art! Years of labour can go into some of the pieces and the detail and handmade craftsmanship is what makes them special. Jared explained to us that many of the rugs purchased by customers are passed down within their families. They are definitely meant to be held onto for years. Some of the handwoven rugs that we saw dating back to 1880 but I still found many of them very relevant to interiors today. Their aged appearance and beautiful wash of colours and pattern can be really stunning in a contemporary setting.
If you are in the area I recommend popping in to take a look at the collection. Photos simply don't do the rugs the justice they deserve and you really need to feel the product and see the detail to truly appreciate them. A big thank you to the Cadrys family and team for taking us through your showrooms!
