The Oriental Rug Merchant
We opened our “Bricks-and-Mortar” High Street Rug Shop in 2012.
We are located in Royal Tunbridge Wells, on the Kent-Sussex border. Thus, we are conveniently situated to serve Kent, Sussex, Surrey and London. However, from our website we send our Rugs all over the UK and Internationally.
The Oriental Rug Merchant’s origins spring from the foremost rug retailer of south-east England (Tunbridge Wells based): “The Oriental Rug Shop”.
The Oriental Rug Shop closed due to the retirement of its Senior Partners, notably its founder Mike Sweenie.
Encouraged by Mike, a new business was formed in the aftermath and is run by his protégé Stefan and Lee.
Between them Stefan and Lee served The Oriental Rug Shop for nearly 25 years.
So as a result, The Oriental Rug Merchant has carried forward from The Oriental Rug Shop a network of tried and trusted suppliers accumulated over 30 years of trading.
In fact, it is because of this historical link that we continue to use the domain name theorientalrugshop.co.uk to this day.
