Momeni Rugs is a leading manufacturer and importer of fine area rugs and floor coverings. Since 1975 the Momeni family has brought their thoughtful approach to creating beautiful, quality products for the home. The Carlstadt, NJ design studio and headquarters is home to the Momeni collection of antique, one-of-a-kind and signature lines of area rugs.
Momeni Rugs started small, with founder Haji Momeni sending his eldest son rugs from Iran to sell out of his dorm room. Momeni's business eventually expanded within the United States, and the company has since become an innovator in area rug design. Momeni rugs are available in traditional, transitional, and contemporary styles. The company's traditional rugs are inspired by its Iranian heritage, while its transitional and contemporary styles draw inspiration from many sources, including nature and art. The New Wave collection from Momeni includes many contemporary rugs inspired by modern artists like Piet Mondrian and Gustav Klimt, among others. Art lovers in particular will enjoy decorating with these rugs, bringing a touch of the masters' work into their homes. In contrast to the contemporary New Wave rugs, the traditional styles of the Persian Garden line will bring a touch of old-world class to any design. The Persian Garden rugs are machine-made and inspired by antique Persian rugs and artworks.
Considering that Momeni began making rugs in Hamadan, Iran before expanding his business, these Persian-inspired rugs feel like a natural variety for the company to offer. Available in deep, saturated tones and classic patterns, Persian Garden rugs are sure to please. Other traditional Momeni rugs include the subdued Belmont collection and the rich, monochromatic Encore collection. The Lil Mo Whimsy, Lil Mo Classic, and Lil Mo Hipster lines include unique and attractive rugs designed for children. Each of these lines has a particular style suited for a particular kind of child (and parent), and brings a sophisticated rug to a playful space. The Lil Mo Whimsy includes whimsical nature prints, along with other patterns kids will love, such as outer space and sports. Lil Mo Hipster includes more stylized patterns, from New York City skylines to paint splatters and cool geometrics. Finally, Lil Mo Classic reimagines classic rug designs for children's spaces, including nature motifs and calming colors.
