HOW WE WORK WITH DESIGNERS AND DECORATORS

At The Rug Importer, we provide our expertise for designers who come to our showrooms with their clients or on their own. You can count on us to stand behind the value and authenticity of our large inventory of handmade rugs and broadloom carpeting. We can also support you in using handmade rugs to create custom coverings for furniture, pillows and other items.

We are competitively priced with all area resources and provide designer discounts. We offer up to 75% off on most of our special one-of-a-kind area rugs and from 40-60% off everyday prices on our broadloom carpeting and stair and hallway runners.

Decorating Professionals: Please call Syed at 201-349-7000 to set up an appointment to visit our stores.

"DESIGNER CONSULTANT OPPORTUNITY"

On this website, we highlight designers to provide our customers with a free one-hour consultation in our showrooms. Whether it's to help select an area rug or carpeting, or to look over space plans, the designer will be compensated if our customer makes a purchase. This service provides the designer with exposure and additional opportunities to engage our customers and obtain more business. If you are interested in becoming a Designer Consultant, please call Syed Hussaini at 201-349-7000.






FREE IN-HOME SHOWING SAMPLE SERVICE

Our In-Home Sample Service can be easily arranged if you need to show your clients how a rug looks in a room you're designing.

Once you and your client have selected several rugs, our team will pull these from our inventory and bring them -free of charge- directly to your client's home. We know purchasing an area rug is a big decision, so we make it as easy as possible by showing the rugs in your client's space.





DESIGNERS CHOICE COLLECTION

The Rug Importer presents The Designer's Choice Collection - an incredible opportunity for New Jersey designers and decorators! We selected four talented area designers who created their own unique rug collections from our vast inventory. The designers embodied their signature aesthetics and vision through their style and story. We grouped these collections together in our stores - and highlighted each designer with her own display.

We celebrated our first Designers Choice Collection "launch" at a cocktail reception in our East Hanover store - attended by the designer's clients, family and friends. This annual event will take place each September and we encourage your participation.

An application is available to ALL New Jersey interior designers and decorators - and if selected a winner you can expect:

  • An in store display, featuring your bio and portfolio, along with your rug selections
  • Direct mail to 15,000 Rug Importer customers, featuring you and your collection
  • Generous returns when you sell your signature collection
  • Publicity in 201 Magazine, Design NJ, NY Spaces, and other design publications
  • A page on our website, featuring you and your rug collection available for purchase
