Profile Last Updated: January 27, 2009
When we buy items to beautify our homes, they're rarely made locally, but they look like they could have been designed and manufactured by North American hands. At Ararat Oriental Rugs, decorative area rugs are designed, produced and sent from all over Asia. Traditional fabrics like silk and wool and styles that range from antique and traditional to fresh and modern fill this store from floor to ceiling. Whether you're looking for a practical hallway runner or a conversation piece to take centre stage in the living room, you'll find something that suits your taste here.
A Fine Reputation
In a city whose urban landscape is constantly shifting and changing, and where shops and restaurants tend to blink in and out of existence, Ararat is a true rarity. The shop has been in its same location since 1930, and with a reputation for carrying the largest selection of rugs, from middle grade to the highest in quality, it's no wonder that this store comfortably shares the neighbourhood with other landmarks like The Stanley.
Leave it to the Professionals
We've all watched in silent horror as that wine glass or plate of spaghetti falls in slow motion to the floor. Oftentimes trying to clean such stains out of the carpet only makes matters worse, which is why Ararat offers professional in-store rug cleaning and repair services. You don't have to replace that irreplaceable area rug due to fraying or everyday dirt, you can just take it into the store and leave it to the professionals.
