Since 1897, Minasian Rug Company has been a world-class purveyor of handmade antique, vintage, and fine new rugs and carpets from its headquarters on Chicago’s North Shore. Armen and Carnig Minasian are proud to continue the traditions of quality, selection and customer service that are the hallmarks of their third generation family business. The Minasian team has decades of experience working with interior design professionals, corporate consultants and private individuals who are in search of the finest antique or contemporary rugs and carpets.

In addition to civic and philanthropic activities, the Minasian Brothers are certified appraisers and members of the Oriental Rug Retailers Association. Armen serves on the Trustee-appointed board of the Art Institute of Chicago’s textile committee and as an officer of its Textile Society. Carnig teaches a course on Oriental rugs at Northwestern University and lectures at Chicago’s Frances Parker and Latin Schools. In 2001 he was appointed to the Advisory Council for The Textile Museum in Washington DC, an internationally recognized collection and center of textile study and research. Whether it’s a custom installation for a private jet, a palace-sized antique for a governor’s residence or an ancient rug for your family room, Minasian Rug Gallery is dedicated to the complete satisfaction of their clients.

The Chicago DEMA Chapter is delighted they will be hosting the Chicago DEMA Chapter this month for a question and answer on the vast and exciting topic of antique and decorative rugs at their beautiful rug showroom. 

Attending your local Chapter’s monthly event is a great opportunity to network with your peers and learn valuable information to help maintain your estate. Light refreshments will be served and guests/spouses/partners/business colleagues are welcome to attend.

We look forward to seeing you and your guests on the 27th!
