Handel and Hendrix in London
Handel and Hendrix in London

Supporting the work of Handel and Hendrix House at 25 Brook Street, Mayfair, London. To source comparable rugs to the original furnishings of the rooms occupied by Jimi Hendrix in 1968 - 1970. It appears Jimi was fond of oriental rugs and was amassing a small collection prior to his untimely demise. Although he hardly had the time to fully develop his taste one can see he was certainly on the right track.
