For decades, Momeni rugs have been perfecting the art of fine floor-covering. The company, founded by Haji Momeni in 1975, originally got its start when Haji began to send on-of-a-kind carpets from Hamadan to his son, Ahmad. His son then sold the carpets to fellow students out of his college dorm room. The company took off quickly, and the Momeni’s soon found themselves traveling across the U.S., selling their handmade goods to retailers and private customers alike. By then, they had expanded their inventory to include hand knotted rugs from India, Iran, Pakistan, China, and Romania.
In the early 1990’s Momeni felt that it was time to expand again and wanted to offer their customers a more affordable option, so they started producing the more competitively priced Hooked rugs, Hand Tufted Rugs, and Machine Made varieties out of various materials, such as wool and broadloom.
Now, the company has international success and is recognized as a leader and trendsetter in area rug industry with many different area rug collections. They are known for catering to many styles and tastes, from lush elegant patterns to sleek, modern designs, Momeni has it all, for a price. But you don’t have to worry about that because at AreaRugsClub.com, we have all the best Momeni Rugs at a fraction of the cost. Here are some highlights from their current collections:
New Wave – Let yourself be swept away on the tide of Momeni’s hand tufted New Wave rugs. Using a mix of bold colors and innovative graphics, these area rugs are sure to catch your eye. Many of these rugs are hand carved to add depth and feature a Tibetan-like weave that, until now, could only be found in a hand knotted rug. New wave rugs add contemporary flavor to any space.
Elements – Encapsulating all that is modern, this collection utilizes a brilliant color palette and carefully thought out designs to enhance its contemporary edge. Each rug is power loomed from 100 percent pure New Zealand wool, and is finished by a skilled area rug artist with hand-serged edges and hand carving. This attention to detail is really what sets this collection apart from any other.
Maison – Inspired by the beautiful friezes, baroque ceilings and plaster sculptures of the 18th and 19th centuries, the Maison collection uses a subtle palette and exquisitely detailed designs to brings elegance and luxury to any space. The hand carved surface and lush pile only add to the extravagance that is the Maison collection.
Veranda – An intriguing and elegant solution to outdoor decorating, the Veranda collection uses a combination of traditional designs and subtle transitional motifs to adorn their hand-hooked polypropylene rugs. However, the real wow factor here isn’t in the design, stunning at that may be, but in the ease of care. With their trademark EZ-care treatment, all you have to do is hose them off from time to time and these rugs will provide you with years of use because they are UV protected and fade and mildew resistant.
Vintage – Originally created to emulate the popular over-dyed and patchwork hand-knotted rugs that have garnered so much popularity over the recent years, the Vintage collection combines a rich palette with unique finishing techniques to create one-of-a-kind rugs that would make anyone’s mouth water. This collection has the look of a hand knotted rug and the quality of a power loomed masterpiece. Each rug is then hand sheered to give it a weathered antique look. Because of the hand shearing and incredible attention to detail, no two Vintage Momeni rugs are quite the same.
