"Look at that rug," says owner Rumzi (Randy) Kaoud of Kaoud Rugs, pointing at the rug his customer is eyeing. "Now look away and try to remember what you saw."

He says that most of the time when he urges customers to try this, they can't pinpoint anything specific—they just know they liked it. That's because, he says, the more you examine one of these antique rugs, the more intricacies you notice, much like viewing art in a museum.

Antique rugs are artwork, but the kind that is durable and meant to be used. With no two alike and all handmade, sometimes hundreds of years ago in villages across the globe, each rug offers individual asymmetrical patterns.

Whether you are interested in acquiring an antique rug, have one for appraisal or sale, or need some help with care, cleaning, repairs or restoration, Kaoud Antique Rugs is the destination for discerning patrons.

Kaoud has become a renowned expert in antique oriental rugs whose opinion is widely sought for authentication and appraisals. He believes that these rugs are vessels for the transference of creative energy from one time to another, from one geography to another and, most important, from one human to another. Just like that painting you love, the more you look at it, the more you love and appreciate its beauty, detail, and energy.

Kaoud offers only the finest hand-knotted, one-of-a-kind, imported oriental rugs. The immediate success of the business was in large part due to the impeccable quality of every single rug they sold. More notably, the longevity has been determined by decades of dedication to every single customer.

The Kaoud Antique Rugs showroom and maintenance facility is situated in a bright, open, and distinct building at 594 Boston Post Road in Guilford, housing an extensive and varied inventory of antique rugs, ranging from the floral patterns of Kerman, Sarouk, and Keshan to the primitive geometries of Heriz, Kazak, and Shirvan.

"We treat you the way we would want to be treated, and make sure you are happy and satisfied."

This information was provided by Kaoud Rugs, located at 594 Boston Post Road, Guilford, and 463 Boston Post Road, Orange. For more information, visit or call 203-453-2310.
