About the Owners

Meet Judy Brown and Mark Petrancosta, the heart and soul behind Bounds Cave's Rug Gallery in Cashiers, NC. Their journey began four decades ago in Jacksonville, Florida, and for the past 26 years, they've lovingly called Cashiers their home.

Judy and Mark share a deep passion for the artistry of handmade rugs from across the globe. What sets them apart is their unwavering commitment to offering a diverse, handpicked selection that includes the extraordinary and the rare – those one-of-a-kind rugs that promise to transform your space into something truly exceptional.

Within their collection, you'll discover an array of styles, from timeless traditional patterns to transitional designs that harmonize effortlessly with contemporary trends. They also treasure and showcase tribal and antique rugs, each with its unique story and character.

Beyond the walls of their gallery, Judy and Mark embark on journeys across the country to deliver rugs personally chosen to meet their customers' specific needs. This personalized service is at the heart of their mission – to cater to their customers in a way that makes their homes come alive with the beauty of carefully selected rugs.
