Dover Rug & Home’s Boston Location Now Open!

Summers are typically a time for winding down, a time for relaxation, and while that was certainly not the case for Dover, we could not be more happy with the past few months. Our summer was well-spent as we worked hard to bring to life a new chapter for Dover Rug & Home.

We have proudly opened the doors to our Boston location at 390 Stuart Street. Thinking back to our humble beginnings in 1989 we feel incredibly blessed by how far we have come. From a small store in Dover to the largest showroom in New England and now a second location in the heart of what is being coined Boston’s Home Furnishing  District, we are grateful for each step of our journey and amazed by the  level of support we have received from each of you! As a thank you, we promise to work exceptionally hard to continue to bring the remarkable products and services that you have come to expect over our last four generations of business. With the backing of our extensive inventory in Natick and our custom color, size, and design manufacturing in India, Pakistan, and Nepal, we will continue to stock our showrooms with the latest in contemporary, transitional, and traditional style rugs and carpets. We look forward to being able to accommodate our loyal customers as well as being able to welcome new faces in and around Boston with our newest location in Back Bay.


We welcome you to join us in celebrating the opening of our Boston location with up to 70% off select rugs and carpeting! Stop by during our Boston business hours, which are Monday, Tuesday, Friday and Saturday, 10:00AM to 6:00PM; Wednesday and Thursday, 10:00AM to 8:00PM and Sunday from 12noon to 5:00PM.


Trendy Colors Without Fear

Decorating with trendy colors is tempting. After all, who doesn’t want the most stylish house on the block? But let’s face it; trends go out of style just as quickly as they came into it. After a few years, your once fashionable home looks like a relic of the past and you’re faced with the burden of redecorating. Instead of resigning to timeless colors that tend to lack personality like white and black, bring trendy colors into your home with area rugs. Using area rugs instead of more permanent design choices to bring color into your home gives you a bit more flexibility should your purchase go out of style. With this option you can incorporate the latest color trends, including:

The new neutral: In the past, browns and beiges ruled the neutrals, but today, even the neutrals are becoming more fun. Shades of grey are now the favorites. Neutrals contrast well with bright colors, making this fad the perfect choice for a room with colorful walls or furniture.


Colors that pop: Once considered too informal, bright colors like coral and aqua are making their way into all styles of rooms. These colors offer the perfect amount of fun while maintaining a level of sophistication. If your room is feeling a little too monotone this is the trend you want to buy into. A bright colored rug can bring a pop of color without major renovations.

Pale Shades: Known for their calming effect, muted colors are some of the hottest options right now. Colors like light lavender and light blue are among the favorites. An area rug in one of these colors looks best when accented with shades of grey.


You shouldn’t be afraid to bring your favorite colors into your home even if you think you’ll have entirely different favorites a few years down the road. Rugs let you roll trends into your home instantly, and if you need a change, you can just as easily roll them away!
