More on Cowhide Rugs
Who can forget seeing spits roasting giant slabs of cattle on country roads in Argentina?
Who does not love the country that invented chimmichurri sauce? Not to mention the tango!

Pantone, Rugs and Fabric - First Look

Gary Dicus 1950-2015
As many of you have heard, Gary Dicus died last Thursday following a battle with an aggressive brain cancer.
We who have the joy and privilege to work in the business that Gary created from scratch painfully mourn his loss.
The Addison/Dicus & Bailey Company was founded in 1983. Its founder, Gary Dicus, recognized the design community as a viable primary market to a merchant willing to specialize in its needs. The company has since grown to service exclusively all the floor covering needs of the design community, including interior designers, architects and builders.
