Our Collection of Rugs

With all of the options available on the market, how can you be sure that you’ve made the right choice for your décor? While you can look at images of different rugs on the Internet, there is no substitute for seeing and feeling a wide variety of patterns, colors, and qualities in person in order to help determine what rug is right for the purpose you have in mind. Persian Rug Galleries has among the largest selections of hand-knotted Oriental rugs in New England, and the largest selection of power-loomed Karastan rugs in the country. There are hundreds of rugs here, and you can look at every one, if you’d like, without ever breaking a sweat.

We are prepared to spend as much time as you need to answer your questions and help you choose the right rug for the right reasons. This time can total anywhere from six to eight hours, but it’s worth the time to help you buy with confidence. We want to make sure you understand not only the rug you’re buying, but also the impact it can have on your entire interior décor.
