Dover Rug & Home to Host ArtWeek Boston Event

We are pleased to host “From Floors to Walls – Everything you need to know about buying fine art & fine rugs” on Monday, April 28th from 6:00-8:30pm at the AIC Center 38 Newbury St. #702 Boston, MA 02166. The event is part of ArtWeek Boston, a celebration of the arts, cultural, and creative communities. Highlighting the impact of creative placemaking, it showcases creative partnerships through unique experiences in communities where people live, work, and visit.

Dover-2The rug on the floor and the art on the walls are often the most expensive investment in your home. We often know what we like, but do you really understand why these exquisite pieces are priced the way they are and whether you are making a sound investment?

Decorating with fine art is often a challenge. While rugs are the decorative art for your floors and fine art is the décor for your walls, it is critical these pieces work together to enhance, compliment and complete your desired look and feel to fit your lifestyle and taste. These pieces can also often be the most expensive investment to decorate your home and mistakes can be costly. Featuring experts Mahmud Jafri, CEO of Dover Rug & Home and Jacqui Becker of Jacqueline Becker Fine Arts Consulting Services will demystify the art of decorating with both genres as guests learn the facts on how to purchase fine art and fine rugs; what drives their prices and how to make an educated investment in pieces that will last a lifetime. Vignettes of exquisite carpets and fine art will be on display in classic, traditional, contemporary and transitional styles to further illustrate the discussion. Join in on the discussion and test your knowledge of the price values of each display!

Dover Rug & Home Announces New Boston Location

I am excited to share with you all that this summer, Dover Rug & Home will be opening a second location in Boston. The new location is conveniently located at 390 Stuart Street in Boston’s Back Bay neighborhood – a stone’s throw from Copley Square, public transportation and in the heart of what is being coined as Boston’s Home Furnishing district.  Dover-Boston will offer the same exceptional products and services our customers have depended on us for over the years, with the backing of the extensive inventory we house in our Natick location.  This second location allows us to better serve and accommodate our loyal customers, while welcoming new faces in the Boston area to our Dover family.

The support and camaraderie you have all shown to me since our humble beginnings in 1989 has been truly overwhelming. Thank you for making Dover Rug & Home what it is today. We couldn’t have started this new venture without your support. As we get closer to completing our second location, we’ll keep you posted on the grand opening date. We look forward to seeing you this summer in Boston!
