About Esmaili Rugs & Antiques, Inc.
For over thirty years Esmaili Rugs and Antiques has offered clients an unsurpassed selection of exquisite, handmade Oriental rugs from around the world. With such a large selection of Oriental rugs, we pride ourselves in being one of the leading importers of fine rugs in the Dallas and Fort Worth Metroplex. Esmaili's exclusive rug collection is highly curated and represents many styles, including Persian, Turkish, Moroccan, Chinese, and embroidered textiles from across the globe.
By traveling the world, browsing local street markets and establishing relationships with overseas rug makers, Mr. Ali Esmaili provides his customers with the most sought-after, hard-to-find antique rugs that exude exotic artistry, enthralling designs and remarkable shades of colors you never knew existed. Owner Ali Esmaili describes his ideal client as someone who sees the individuality, beauty, value and history in rugs. “Most of our clients are confident and not afraid to honor their inner persona with bold, elegant statement pieces,” he adds. “Rugs are like artwork, and every piece is handmade; no two are exactly alike. That’s why I say it’s art you can walk on.”
Perhaps this is why Esmaili’s showroom is one of the metroplex’s true gems, for everyone from Erykah Badu to world-renowned designers like Michelle Nussbaumer, Kelly Wearstler and Emily Henderson. Esmaili’s stunning selection—over 6,000 pieces—is highly curated and represents many styles, including contemporary, distressed, kilim and tapestry, as well as every major weaving center in the world: Afghanistan, the United States, China and Khotan, Europe, India, Morocco, Pakistan, Persia and Turkey— and this comprises only a partial list! In addition to its geographic and stylistic diversity, Esmaili’s inventory accommodates a broad range of price points, making it the metroplex’s premier destination for everything from tribal Berber Moroccan rugs and Turkish oushaks to antique tapestries. With an inventory this large, one never has to worry about finding a dream rug online only to discover it is not in the showroom and has to be a special order.
