We strive to provide an outstanding selection and excellent service to our customers in a true, full service rug center.

A Brief History

Since 1978, Behnam Rugs has been in the business of selling fine handmade rugs and providing expert cleaning, repair, and restoration services.

The Tavakolian brothers came to the United States in 1970 to pursue their higher education. Once they completed that journey, the brothers decided to carry on their traditional family business of importing and exporting handmade rugs. They chose Dallas, Texas as their headquarters because of the tremendous growth the area was experiencing.

Initially, the brothers directly imported rugs from Iran (Persia). They then expanded their import and manufacturing business to India, China, Pakistan, and Romania due to the wide variety of colors, designs and grades of quality found in these countries. Their goal was, is, and always will be to provide outstanding selection and service to their customers in a true full service rug center.

In 1999, Behnam “Ben” Tavakolian moved one block north on Preston Road, where he designed and built a distinctive Mediterranean-style showroom and service center from the ground up. The showroom was designed to utilize as much natural light as possible, as it showcased beautiful antique and new rugs from around the world. It is a source to interior designers, architects, and homeowners who have come to appreciate the unparalleled selection. Adjacent to the showroom is the Behnam Rugs state of the art, hand-wash rug cleaning and rug repair and restoration center.
