Chapter Excursion to Costikyan

Last week, we had the privilege of embarking on an exclusive design journey to Long Island City, where we were graciously hosted by chapter sponsor Costikyan, a beacon of luxury textile care since 1886. Our evening commenced with an array of exquisite culinary delights and festive libations, amidst a backdrop of vibrant discussions, paving the way for a captivating exploration of Costikyan's esteemed facility.

This immersive tour was not merely a walkthrough; it was an educational odyssey through the heart of textile craftsmanship, where every corner unveiled the meticulous processes behind rug and textile preservation. We were invited to delve into interactive stations, each meticulously curated to showcase the depth of expertise Costikyan offers. These stations covered a comprehensive range of services, from the initial stages of cleaning and protection to the intricate work of restoration, fabrication, and seamless installation.

As we navigated through the facility, we were treated to live demonstrations by seasoned Costikyan experts. Their passion for textile care was palpable, translating into a series of engaging presentations that illuminated the precision and care with which they approach every project. The evening was further enriched by a series of fabulous raffles and giveaways, adding an element of excitement and surprise to the already memorable event.

Our visit to Costikyan was more than just an exploration of luxury textile care; it was a testament to the brand's enduring legacy and its unwavering commitment to excellence. We extend our heartfelt thanks to Costikyan for opening their doors to us and for curating such an enriching experience. It was not only a journey through the annals of textile care but also an inspirational reminder of the artistry and dedication that defines the world of luxury interior design.
