Artemis Design Co. — www.artemisdesignco.com
Artemis Design Co. couples unique, worldly textiles with classic design to create one of a kind handbags, kilim shoes, and other accessories. A passion for collecting, faraway travels, and love of all things beautiful has led designer Milicent Armstrong to source and design her many collections. Milicent is an incredible creative talent, and the Rosenberg family is a devoted customer!
Artemis is best known for their magical “Flying Carpet Shoes” — one of a kind kilim loafers and kilim smoking shoes that are all handmade from genuine Turkish flying carpets! Milicent and her team handpick the most vibrant, beautiful Kilim carpets from the bazaars of Turkey, and then make limited edition collections, resulting in completely one of a kind and collectible footwear.

Melissa + Dave Dilmaghani, the wife and husband creative team behind Old New House, are passionate about antique, vintage and handmade items and specialize in textiles: old hand knotted carpets of all vintages and types, fine woven throws in addition to wall art, hand-made original pillows, and furniture. Old New House launched in 2011 on Etsy.com to rave reviews, and in the fall of 2016, Dave and Melissa opened their 1st store (and operation headquarters) in Katonah, just across the street from the train station. Authenticity, genuine age and period correct décor are important to them, as are texture and colors. They source and carry rare and collectible rugs from antiquities to the 19th century, as well as outworn, distressed and faded carpets such as vintage Oushak rugs.
