F O CUS on Midland Park Businesses Patrick `Bud’ O’Hagan, Realtor David Anthony Carpets: purveyors of fine handmade rugs W A carpet ties your décor together like nothing else can, but to find that perfect carpet is no easy task. That is, unless you let Dave Zisa of David Anthony Carpets do the searching for you. With over a decade of experience in the business and contacts literally all over the world, Zisa can locate exactly what his customer – either a designer or a homeowner – needs, or he can have it custom-designed to their specifications. Honing his skills by dealing strictly with the handmade rug Dave Zisa importing trade, Zisa decided to open David Anthony Carpets five years ago to share his expertise with area homeowners. Originally on Godwin Avenue, he moved his showroom to 18 Goffle Road in the quaint Victorian building eight months ago, where the lighting is better to appreciate his handsome wares and the parking is more convenient. David Anthony Carpets carries a huge inventory of fine handmade carpets from every rug-producing country, from moderately priced decorative rugs to semi antiques to collectible antiques in traditional to contemporary designs. It also has a selection of handmade tapestries, pillows and ottomans. Customers may bring in their furniture or drape fabric swatches for Zisa to match, or he will make in-home consultations at no-charge. David Anthony Carpets also specializes in carpet repairs, fiber guarding and cleaning. His staff is comprised of old-world craftsmen knowledgeable in the handling of heirlooms to preserve their integrity and value. “They are the best,” Zisa says of his staff. Since Zisa is mostly out on the road, David Anthony Carpets is open limited hours or by appointment. Call 201-612-8666.
