What's up? I'm Stephanie, the curator and owner of Knotted Mercantile. If someone were to ask me "what is one picture that describes you best?" this would be it. I'm a coffee all day type of gal, phone in hand (usually why y'all hear back from me so quickly on Instagram), believe boot season is all the seasons, and also wish flannel season is all the seasons but that's nearly impossible here in the humid state of Louisiana.
I've always had a thing for old charming items (my husband has an old soul, so this totally makes sense). I blame this profound "thing" that I have on all of the antique/flea market trips with my grandmothers when I was a kid! After a recent home update, I have taken my time filling our home with timeless and unique pieces my husband and I both love, hoping that we can point at a certain item and tell a story. During my hunt for unique items, I sourced a few rugs personally for our home and IMMEDIATELY noticed the ability of a vintage or antique rug to elevate a space. Not to mention, these are rugs we will have for heirloom sake. Interest peaked in learning more about the timeless art, connections were made, and the rest is history! So welcome to my site, I hope you find a rug that is just as unique as you are! You will find I have a good mixture of neutrals, muted colors, and bold colors. As I just couldn't figure out which type I really wanted to keep in shop (although my heart melts every time I see a good rich colored rug).
When sourcing rugs I truly do pick the rugs that make me happy, or rugs that I would put in my own home. It truly keeps this fun for me. Happy shopping, please feel free to direct message on Instagram if you have ANY questions!
