Area Rugs: Your Floor's Best Friend


There are no shortage of individual styles and tastes for today’s consumer!

Thankfully a flooring product exists that is capable of accommodating the mildest to the wildest preferences. The humble area rug.

For thousands of years, people have coveted rugs not only for the warmth they provide, but also for the personality they can bring to any room.

The earliest known rug; The Pazyryk Carpet, dates back to the 7th century B.C. and was discovered in 1949 in Siberia. Tribes from all over the globe used woven wool rugs for everything from tent flaps, to blankets, to creating saddlebags for transporting materials on horseback.

From East Asia to South America the product has served mankind for generations, gaining its adoption as a floor-covering accompaniment in Europe around the 1700’s. Perhaps no flooring product has such a global footprint, or can deliver such a unique story to your home.
