We believe in hope chests with one-of-a-kind treasures.

Surroundings that Inspire


The Scarab, in Minturn, Colorado, was founded in 1992 by Jane Rohr, a treasure hunter from Istanbul, and Larry Stone, a connoisseur and collector from the Southern US. Today we bring rugs and one-of-a-kind riches across oceans and into your everyday life.

The Scarab is more than a retail store. It is a gathering place for kindred spirits to reconnect and a shopping experience that puts people in touch with things that matter. It is a long-time favorite of the interior design community, as well as savvy homeowners and friends who return again and again. And first time visitors revel in unique surprises.

Each piece has a story

Wander through our showroom to discover handcrafted merchandise that expresses your individuality and adds a touchstone of meaning. Our collection of furniture, décor and personal accessories are vintage collectibles or authentic pieces handmade by artisans. We look for items that have a purpose, as well as those that are repurposed and up-cycled.

"A visit to the Scarab is like a free day at an exquisitely curated folk art museum...the collection is rare, precious and sublime, the staff is friendly, knowledgeable and resourceful. Whether I need that special gift or perfect accent, I always know a treat awaits."
