Hazel House

The appeal of antique, vintage rugs

An important element of interior design is floor coverings. How do you choose the perfect rug to complement your space? The Cullman area has a unique new option! Hazel House, a vintage rug shop in Homewood, has a new location downtown.

“Hazel House specializes in vintage and antique Turkish and Persian rugs,” said Owner Elizabeth Lee. “It all started in 2017 with me trying to find rugs for my own home. My parents had Persian rugs in my childhood home and still have some of the same rugs over 40 years later. This is what I wanted for our own home.”

Lee said she knew she wanted classic and quality rugs that would hold up to three very active kiddos. 

“I bought a few that didn't end up working for us, so I sold them to friends and neighbors,” she said, “and then a friend reached out to find her another and then her mother asked me to source her a living room rug.  It just turned into ‘something,’ and it didn't hurt that I loved doing it!  And if you look closely, you'll see my three sons’ initials in our logo: P, T and F.  

Vintage, antique rugs are unique and much different than many rugs made today.

“All our rugs are hand-knotted of 100% wool and cotton fibers,” said Lee. “They are extremely durable and clean easily. Most rugs you buy now are filled with synthetic material that easily breaks down and are hard to clean.”

Lee believes the right rugs can transform your home.

“We believe that rugs make a house a home,” she said. “Not only are they one-of-a-kind works of art, but they also add personality and warmth to any room.”

Some of Hazel House’s most popular selections at the moment are runners.

“Once our clients realize how they hold up to traffic and are so easy to clean, they are hooked!” Lee smiled. “We have all shapes and sizes for any style of home.”

The new shop in Cullman is located at 221 Third Ave. SE.

“Suzanne Jones of Holland & Birch is a dear friend and suite neighbor to our Homewood shop,” said Lee. “She mentioned opening a second location and I jumped at the chance to join her. I've been wanting to come to Cullman for a couple of years and am so excited to be here!”
