Renew, Rejuvenate, Redo!

Dover Rug & Home is always exploring the newest products and services available so we can provide more possibilities for our customers and their homes. Rugs have the power to alter a room completely and bring life and color to one that was once drab and out of date. They can also lift your spirit and rejuvenate your house by transforming an old room into your favorite room.

The past several months are peak “buying” times for our industry and we had the privilege of attending trade shows all over the world to see firsthand the newest trends in rugs and floor coverings. From Atlanta to Las Vegas, from South Asia to Europe, the rugs and carpets available this coming season are exquisite! They are modern, uplifting and they artistically combine textures and materials in unexpected ways. There is no better way to ward off winter blues than by giving the interior of your home a face-lift, starting with rugs and carpets!

We are thrilled to bring these products back to our showrooms in Natick and Boston. We realize not everyone’s taste is the same so we feature styles from a variety of cultures and from talented artists who combine textures and materials in unparalleled, intricate patterns. A few highlights of the new rugs we have in stock are:

Dover Hosts “Colors of India” Screening

This past week, we were given the opportunity to share the incredible and artistic process of rug making. As a part of Boston’s Artweek celebration, this event offered guests a rare glimpse into the world of rug making with a showing of the acclaimed documentary “The Colors of India.” Guests also enjoyed traditional Indian food, beverages, and music while perusing our temporary gallery of rugs.

Dover employee, Temel Yilmaz, who did a rug weaving demonstration at the event, with CEO, Mahmud Jafri.

We were so proud to participate in this event because we truly believe supporting the arts is crucial. Every piece of art in every form has a story and a history, and it is important for us as a community to encourage and appreciate the dedication and talent that goes into each piece. On top of that, the event was a tremendous amount of fun for us. Sharing a passion is always exciting, especially with such an amazing crowd. It was genuinely thrilling for us to interact with such an enthusiastic and engaged audience, one that now shares an appreciation of the entire rug making process with us.
