Dominion Rug Takes us on a Magic Carpet Ride
For centuries, rugs and tapestries have served as symbols of style, status and sophistication. They have been displayed on tables, hung on walls, draped over sofas, tucked under furniture and in the process, have changed the face of home décor in countries all over the world.
Each possessing its own worldly charm, carpets still hold the same value today, acting as the focal point for a home and setting the tone for all who enter. “Many people design their home around a rug,” says Ben Baum, owner of Dominion Rug in Toronto. “They are a form of art.” With a remarkable 61 years in business, Dominion Rug’s standing has been built upon decades of perseverance and customer loyalty. To this day, the company is lauded for its level of quality and the vast selection that it offers. As a member of the International Design Guild, the company is proud to house the finest selection of broadloom in Toronto, while upholding an incredible reputation.
“Rugs have become a fashion statement that reflects your lifestyle and your taste,” says Baum. Just ask the homeowners and designers that flock to his showroom in search of that perfect central piece. Adorned with hundreds of meticulous weaves in intricate patterns and majestic colours, the showroom is dressed in decorative gems – many from the faraway countries of China, Pakistan, India and Nepal.
If your vision isn’t brought to life with one of the rugs already in the showroom, Dominion Rug is happy to custom-make a piece especially for you. It will be made to suit your taste and colour scheme, and shipped to you in about four to six months. The result is a completely handwoven piece that you had a hand in designing – and it’s definitely worth the wait.
