How Ambitious Home Started

Learn how Monique Volz of Ambitious Kitchen started her online vintage rug shop business, Ambitious Home.

After moving to Chicago in 2014 to work on her food and wellness website full time, Monique began searching for beautiful rugs that would create a statement in her new city apartment. She always had a love for vintage pieces that told a story and decided that the rugs in her home would be no different.

Unable to find anything for an affordable price, she began collecting and hunting for rugs through wholesalers, dealers, antique shops, estate sales, and auctions. Monique couldn’t help but fall in love with the unique patterns and beautiful bold colors the rugs brought into her home.

After Monique and her husband Tony got married in 2017, they decided to take a leap of faith and turn their dreams into a reality by launching Ambitious Home, a curated online vintage shop, focused on selling vintage rugs.

Monique and Tony hope to make vintage rug buying more affordable and accessible. They work incredibly hard to source one-of-a-kind pieces that reflect the beauty and hard work of the hands that created them. No two rugs are the same, and each one promises to tell a story in your home.
