Exceptional Antique Rug Collection: 
Estate Sale of Moussa Machihi and the Machihi Family Going On Now

Moussa Machihi was the ultimate insider. For decades he sold the world's finest rugs and tapestries to high dignitaries and royalty throughout Europe and beyond. His secret was a network of traders who provided access to the finest collections from each region. It is said that each of Moussa's rugs had more than a story, they had a spirit of their own.

Through the years, Moussa built a stunning collection of his own. Fine Rugs of Chevy Chase will be handling the sale of exceptional antique Persian, Tribal and Turkish Rugs at both our Bethesda and Georgetown locations. More information coming soon. 


Fine Rugs of Chevy Chase has curated a vast collection of fine, vintage, antique rugs and tapestries for interior decorators, clients and celebrities throughout the United States and abroad. Our inventory has been hand selected and acquired, individually. Each time, we make sure we select the best quality and value of rug. Our rugs are sold in various cities world-wide such as Los Angeles, New York, Moscow, Paris, London, and the Washington, DC area.
