I spent many hours trawling the internet and high street department stores for a Persian rug to go in my lounge. I found just what I was looking for at Rugs of Persia sale held in St Hugh’s College, Oxford.  Mr. Azari was extremely helpful and understanding as to what I was looking for. A brilliant choice of rugs available to browse and I eventually decided on most beautiful Kashan rug in pale blues on an ivory background.  It was just what I was looking for.  I would highly recommend and will be back next time you visit Oxford.

It it was my second visit to your sale in Oxford.  The Torkeman rug that I bought looks absolutely stunning in my lounge.  It has been much admired by friends.  Please let me know when you are in Oxford again.

It is a pleasure to leave feedback for the two beautiful rugs I bought last Sunday at your Harrogate show.  They look gorgeous in my living room and I have had lots of compliments about them.  I will certainly visit your show when you return to Harrogate – please let me know when this will be.

Kind regards

I purchased a beautiful vintage rug from Rugs of Persia last year.  The service was excellent, and Hossein’s passion for the products he was selling was clearly evident.  Highly recommended!

Ps If you have any further sales in Glasgow please let me know.

We have purchased two beautiful Iranian carpets from Hossein Azari in recent years.  Both rugs were purchased at very favourable prices from Mr. Azari’s regular sales in the Caledonia Hotel in Jesmond.  We were allowed to take a selection of rugs for testing in our house, and this together with Mr Azari’s helpful advice, made our selection much easier.  One carpet is a runner in the hall and the second provides a lovely centrepiece to our dining room.  I can wholeheartedly recommend Rugs of Persia.

We bought our first carpet in 2003 – and have since added quite a few to our collection – much to our daily delight!  We all agree that Persian carpets are beautiful, but what really brings it home is the experience of seeing, selecting and buying a carpet with Mr. Azari there to usher you into the magical world of their beauty.  The fascinating knowledge and understanding of this very special art that Mr. Azari shares with you opens your horizons and reaches out to you in the same way as looking at paintings in an art gallery.  With the explanations and history to introduce them, the rugs and carpets become unique and actually talk to you…..

I bought a beautiful Kashan rug in June 2013 from one of the sale events in Jesmond.  It is magnificent, and totally transformed the living room.  What Mr. Azari doesn’t know about Persian rugs is not worth knowing, and his rugs are very competitively priced while being of the highest quality.  Indeed they are antique works of art.  Thank you.

Rug Purchased 2014.  Bought a traditional design hand knotted Persian carpet from Kerman, Iran from Rugs of Persia.  Its beautiful, quality carpet and looks great in my bedroom.  Very happy with my purchase and the service provided, chose the carpet in the morning and it was delivered that afternoon.  Happy to recommend.

I bought two more or less matching rugs from your one day sale in Jesmond, March 2014.  I would like to thank Hossein for being so patient with me while choosing the rugs.  Many thanks.

Andrew Kennedy – Jesmond, Newcastle upon Tyne  19.03.15

We bought a beautiful antique Kashan rug which we adore.  It has brought warmth and colour to our dining room, we would love to buy one for every room in our house.

John & Angie – Oxford October 2014   17.03.15

I bought my first rug in 2010 at a sale in Jesmond, Newcastle. I had been after the perfect rug to suit my lounge for sometime and was struggling! I found the whole experience of the sale an absolute pleasure, I had time to browse through the rugs that caught my eye and there was a member of staff who was extremely knowledgeable and on- hand for all the questions I had. I found exactly what I was looking for at what I would consider a very reasonable price and I have since been back and purchased from two more sales since. I cannot recommend highly enough!

David Norris, Yarm   17.03.15  

Being a rug enthusiast I was invited to visit Rugs of Persia sale event at Hotel Du Vin, Glasgow 2014.  I bought a fantastic rug for my home to add to my collection, love it.  No hesitation in recommending Rugs of Persia.
Alan Preston – Glasgow    12.03.15

It is thirteen years since I bought my first Tabriz rug from from Hossein / Rugs of Persia. Since then I’ve bought several more and continue to be impressed with their beauty, quality and durability. These works of art could sell themselves. This is because Hossein’s in-depth and first-hand knowledge of manufacturing techniques, quality and design history inform his outstanding selection and add to the joy of ownership. Remembering a customer’s aesthetic preferences as well as their practical requirements contribute to a truly personalised service and make it a pleasure to shop! 

Maggie Crow – Gosforth, Newcastle upon Tyne    08.03.15

I visited Rugs of Persia sale event in Durham Town Hall in 2007 and a bought a lovely Sarog Persian carpet for my conservatory.  The rug is lovely and compliments my conservatory.  I have since recommended Rugs of Persia to my colleagues at Durham University.   I would thoroughly recommend Rugs of Persia.

Beautiful antique rug, fantastic price, I am very pleased with my purchase from Rugs of Persia’s sale event in Bristol Sept 2014. Please let me know when you are next in Bristol.

Darisush Zamani – Bristol       02.03.15

For some time we were deliberating to have a quality rug to enhance our dining room.  We visited Rugs of Persia show in Darlington following a leaflet dropped at our house.  We were very impressed by the selection of designs, sizes and quality of the rugs for sale.  Very happy with Mr.  Azari’s first class service and knowledgeable help in choosing the right carpet for our budget.  We would most definitely recommend Rugs of Persia.

Ben & Claire Bayat – Darlington     02.03.15

I have pleasure in recommending Rugs of Persia. Over the last ten years I have bought four beautiful carpets from Hossein and I am delighted with all of them.

Sam Taylor – Glasgow     28.02.15

We would recommend Rugs of Persia as Mr. Azari knows all there is to know about Persian rugs.  Prices are fantastic.  We bought three carpets for our boutique B&B and are very happy with our purchases.

Mrs & Mrs Vasey – Edinburgh  22.02.15

We were looking for the right colour large carpet to fill 26ft long drawing room.  We had previously visited a number of showrooms but we couldn’t find anything that was quite what we were looking for.  We attended a Rugs of Persia sale in York Place, Edinburgh last year and we found the rug we had been looking for.  We purchased a beautiful Sarog carpet which we love.

Please let us know when you have another sale in Edinburgh or nearby.

Mr & Mrs Bennett – Edinburgh   20.02.15

Very pleased with the rugs we bought three years ago from your sale event at the Cairn Hotel, Harrogate.  They really are a work of art and we love them very much.
