Whether or not you already love Turkish rugs – you will soon. Stepevi has come to SoHo, and it is as luxurious a brand as you’ll find anywhere. This Turkish rug company is known for its gorgeous, plush textural designs. And SoHo is honored to have them. They’ve just opened their first American store in the neighborhood, joining their showrooms in London, Paris, Milan and Instanbul.
As Aysegul Yurekli Sengor, the managing director and wife of the founder, Cem Sengor, said, “In London, we are located on King’s Road, in Paris at St.-Germain and in Milan at Brera — all of these locations being the hubs for artists, creators and designers. SoHo, in that sense, fits very well.”
Even if you’re not in the market for a rug, it’s worth seeing the 2500 square foot store. Designed by Zeynep Fadillioglu, who designed the Sakirin Mosque in Instanbul, the location will be simply divine, as will the rugs and furniture showcased. They are located at 147 Wooster Street (Houston Street), (646) 629-9933.
