Mikaeli Rug is a stockist of a distinct range of unique exotic antique rugs. They have a full inventory valued at over five million dollars to choose from at their new gallery and outlet store. Their inventory is stocked full to suit any space, they are not just unique, but they also project a refined personality and tell a story.

Jason Mikaeli, owner of Mikaeli Rug, takes pride in presenting his exquisite inventory of Contemporary, Modern, Traditional, Solid, Antique, Tribal and Transitional rugs, which is on display at the brand-new Mikaeli Rug Gallery in Carlsbad at 520 Grand Ave., near State Street in the heart of Carlsbad Village. The store’s comprehensive selection of remarkable new and antique rugs will introduce locals to new and more exotic selections.

Other services provided by Mikaeli Rug Gallery include appraisals, cleaning, repair and storage. Shoppers can rely on extensive expertise carried over from Golden Rugs Gallery.

This family business was started in 1968 in Persia by Jason’s father, Houchang Mikaeli, who then moved to Denmark and has now been serving the United States for twenty-seven years. Houchang Mikaeli, retired two-years ago and passed the business torch to Jason, who became the face of Golden Rugs on Miramar Road. At this point, Jason made the decision of re-branding to Mikaeli Rug to protect this family tradition for years to come.

Jason enjoys sharing generations’ worth of knowledge to introduce customers to new and exotic rugs – known as kilims – that he has traded and collected from around the world.

According to Jason, when buying a handmade rug, it’s important to understand the levels of workmanship and how rugs differ from one region of the world to another in quality and design. The store boasts one of the largest choices of Oriental rugs in Southern California.

“We have a wide selection of high quality handmade and collectible antique rugs,” he said. “We also do a superb job in cleaning and repairing rugs.”
