Our History and Philosophy
Gallery Yacou is a family owned business run by myself, Robin Yacoubian, and my father, Ezekiel, and had its origins established over four generations ago as specialists in antique, decorative and contemporary carpets.
We passionately believe in the importance of the right rug for each individual room and that it should not only complement the space but bring depth and character to it. The right rug should unify all the different furnishing elements and colours of a room yet still maintain its own individual provenance and artistic integrity.
We bring to this process our broad depth of knowledge and collective experience and are happy to advise prospective clients on the various options available from our collection and try to make this as enjoyable and informative as possible for you.
We work with a range of clients including leading interior designers and architects, members of the design industry, hoteliers, private clients and collectors. We have provided rugs for a range of properties from grand listed buildings, palaces, hotels, embassies, modern city apartments, 17th century abbeys, country houses and family residences.
We are members of the antique dealers associations, BADA and LAPADA, and an Industry Partner of BIID, the British Insititute of Interior Design, and exhibit annually at the BADA, LAPADA and Decorative Fairs in Battersea. Please email us if you would like a complimentary ticket to any of these Fairs.
Please note that we have relocated from our showroom on the Fulham Road to our studio/workshop in north London.
