In its 38th year of business, David Oriental Rugs unveils the most extensive inventory collection to ever grace the company’s showroom, where just west of the vibrant Uptown District, designers and customers alike may peruse a selection of over 5,000 luxurious rugs in a variety of sizes, origins and styles.
As one of the largest direct importers of fine rugs in the Greater Houston area, David Oriental Rugs offers knowledgeable service, impeccable value and a vast product selection designed to fit any client’s taste and budget. From Decorative Modern Area Rugs and oriental Moroccon rugs to circular Tabriz rugs and handmade Persian Hamedan runners, the possibilities to spruce up one’s interior living space with ornamental flair are endless – not to mention easy, given that the independently owned and operated business offers free delivery and shipping within the contiguous United States.
“Honesty and integrity is our only policy,” said owner David Shahab, who established the company in the early 1980s as a supplier for a local antique gallery and auction house. Since, the business, which moved into its current showroom at the David Oriental Rugs Center nearly a decade ago, has become the highest-rated rug company in the city, boasting multiple Gold Star Awards and a Certificate of Excellence Award for the last 18 consecutive years from the Better Business Bureau, as well as stellar reviews from satisfied, returning customers.
Over the years, pieces from its high-end collection of richly colored, geometric rugs have been featured in Houston Lifestyles and Homes, Katy Lifestyles and Homes, Southern Accents, Houston House and Home, Houston Design Magazine and Luxe Interiors and Design, among others.
Alongside the wholesaler’s ever-changing inventory, the store also offers professional cleaning, appraisal services for insurance and estate purposes, and restoration due to tearing, moth damage, fraying, and unraveled fringes. Specializing in traditional silk and wool fabrics, the company understands that the purchase of a vintage, oriental rug is not only an investment; it is a family heirloom. With a lifespan of up to 100 years, providing quality care is essential to maintaining its authentic, elegant appearance and keeping it newer, longer.
