Rug & Kilim

Celebrating our 42nd anniversary, Rug & Kilim’s award-winning team has been a staple for designers with a vast archive of modern and custom in-house designs, complemented by a rich selection in antiques, vintage, and Kilim.

Established in 1980 by Jahanshah Josh Nazmiyal, our New York showroom has since flourished with an ever-growing collection—including the largest international assortment of Kilim. Drawing on instincts and a wealth of experience, Josh personally selects and oversees each piece in our collection with a team that carries the utmost quality and variety of exotic yarns and weaving techniques; ever pioneering and refining our craft.

From the latest contemporary to most storied antique, every piece is selected for rarity, cultural significance, and lasting beauty. More than storytellers or historians, we are artists, dedicated to providing the very best—from antique to modern and everything in between.
