Gallery Yacou is an established family business of three generations specialising in antique and decorative carpets. Run by Robin and his father Ezekiel.
After having a showroom in the heart of Chelsea on the Fulham Road for over 23 years, we have recently relocated to a spacious studio showroom in North London. Clients are welcome to visit us by appointment or we can also visit them to show our collection in situ anywhere in the U.K.
Our style varies. I am attracted to the artistic merit in different types of weavings – from the charm of tribal village rugs with a simple naive drawing, to sophisticated workshop weavings with a quiet formality and subtle colours.
We specialise in an eclectic range of antique and decorative carpets dating from 19th to mid-20th century, including some quality contemporary carpets with a strong emphasis to blend into contemporary or classic settings. Furnishing and unusually large format pieces are a speciality.
