Why do we have this craving for beauty?
It would have been simpler - and the rugs just as useful -
to leave the wool
To weave solid colors, or simple stripes.
But since the beginning, handmade carpets
have been adorned with clouds and
hunting scenes, ladders, medallions, niches for prayer.
Why bother? What makes us human?



Joseph's Oriental Rug Import is recognized nationwide as having one of the most complete collections of Antique and Semi-Antique Oriental rugs. We take great pride and make extensive efforts to make sure our collection always stays replenished. Our single most important source for good Antique and Semi-Antique oriental rugs is you. We would be interested in purchasing good estate rugs from you as long as the rug dates prior to World War II.

In Store Consignment

Often times a person has an Oriental rug that has fallen out of style or is now too large for a downsized move. What to do? Call or contact Joseph's and inquire about consignment. At any given time, we have upward of 100 consigned rugs in inventory. Consignment involves leaving your rug in our inventory for sale. A selling price is decided upon by Michael Joseph and the owner of the rug. Joseph's Oriental Rug Imports charges a 20% commission for this service.

Web Consignment

If we deem a rug not to be a good in store consignment candidate, we are now offering a new service to aid you. For a one time charge of $100 per rug, we will attach photographs to our website with pricing. Web consignments still include a charge of 20% commission; however, if a consignment is sold the $100 listing will be rebated. A listing will be valid for 6 months.
