Adding to their existing collections and expanding with new
lines of accessories, Michaelian Home always has something extraordinary to add
to your home.
Michaelian Home has a rich history in the textile business
dating back to the 1920s when Frank Michaelian, grandfather of current owner
Jason Sumner, was one of the first Americans to import from the Middle East and
India. During this time, Frank Michaelian also set up a weaving center in China
and he started a rug hooking mill in North Carolina. In doing so, he created a
line of the finest hand knotted rugs, needlepoint pillows, and hooked rugs;
a legacy that continues today.
Michaelian Home, along with its existing line of hand hooked
wool and cotton rugs, needlepoint pillows, hooked wool and cotton pillows, also
now offers benches, stools, travel bags, and coverlets. In 2016
Michaelian Home added a variety of new items including a line of handspun and
hand-loomed shawls and throws, a line of creatively printed and
embroidery-embellished pillows, and a line of chain stitched pillows. New
designs include many seasonal and animal accents, mountain lifestyle themes,
nautical offerings, golf designs and also a revival of many historical
Michaelian Home designs. These new designs, featuring artistry of designers
Betsy Whatley, Robin Sanson, and WILLIAMSBURG
prove that while Michaelian Home continues to offer traditional and classic
designs while staying abreast of the latest fashion trends. Michaelian
Home often creates the unique new products that drive those trends.
Always striving to keep a fresh perspective, they travel the world for
inspiration and to source the highest quality materials.
