Our Story...   Over 30 Years in the Making

Large selection of colorful rugs and throw pillows in all shapes and sizes from World of Rugs show how easy it is to decorate a living room Past

In 1986 our original store opened in Scottsdale at Tatum Boulevard and Thunderbird Road on the day after Christmas to a Phoenix population of less than 900,000 city residents. The small showroom held approximately 300 rugs with prices starting at $1000 for an authentic hand-knotted wool rug.


Fast forward to today with 5 stores in Metro Phoenix serving 4.5 million residents. Our larger stores feature thousands of rugs with a wide variety of styles, colors and sizes. Globalization and technological advances in the manufacturing process have improved the rugs feel with no-worry wearability, plus created great value with prices starting at $199 for a sofa size rug. Of course, our smaller size scatter rugs are even less! We search the world market constantly for the most beautiful fashionable area rugs that are desired by our local customers and fit the Valley’s home decorating style.


Our mission is one of commitment to our clients' satisfaction, achieved by connecting with each individual's needs and offering solutions to suit their unique design and decorating questions. Our clients are the stars in our showrooms. We aim to provide the highest quality selection possible, and our rug experts are helpful, respectful, and encouraging. Each person on our specialized team is trained to know everything there is to know about rugs and non-slip padding.

Our core values of Teamwork, Integrity, and Passion guide every interaction in each of our stores, but having fun is always a must! Every member of our team is fair, honest, and uses the power of collaboration to achieve success for our clients and ourselves.

With over 30 years serving the Valley of the Sun, World of Rugs is more than prepared to help you succeed in finding the perfect rug for your home. And with our 48-hour approval period, there's no risk in trying one out for yourself.
