In Memoriam: Richard Rehl

By Michael Christie


It is with great personal sadness I write the following…

The rug world lost a luminary on February 26, 2017 when Richard Rehl of Aubry Angelo in Minneapolis, MN passed away. Mr. Rehl was a well respected dealer widely known for his always fashionable personal and professional taste, his exceptional eye for carpets and quality and for his infectious smile.

Suzanne Slanga, Richard’s longtime associate at Aubry Angelo and personal friend said, "He loved the people and this industry so much."

Of remarkable note for its rarity in this day and age, Richard was fondly remembered by several colleagues for the fact he still painted his original carpet designs – of which there are many – by hand.
