Fun with Rugs!

Did you know that rugs are directional!? Because handwoven rugs are made on a loom, they look different from different vantage points! The weaver makes horizontal rows of knots on a vertical loom which causes colors to be stronger from one direction and more muted from another. This unique characteristic allows you to tie one room to the next in a variety of ways. You may want to make a statement with bold colors as soon as you enter the house, but lighter tones may look better when standing on a rug in the home looking toward the door. The directional orientation of your handwoven rug allows both possibilities to be possible!

Today's Home


When Sigmund and Audrey Lenchner, both Taylor Allderdice graduates, founded Today’s Home, they had a vision to enrich the lives of area families by bringing true quality home furnishings to Western Pennsylvania. Over the decades, Today’s Home has emerged as a true “family business” success story. Through the years, our dedicated employees have managed to grow the company in an age dominated by big box retailing and mega chains.

Now Today’s Home, with its roots firmly planted in the luxury residential furnishings market, has additional operating companies in Designer Furniture Outlet Stores and TH TRADE Commercial. DFO has become the luxury closeout treasure-hunter’s favorite haunt. Our newest addition, TH TRADE, provides ASID level design to our commercial contract customers. We invite you to contact a Today’s Home designer to visit our showroom and see the world of possibilities awaiting you at Today’s Home.
