Established in 1983.

We came to realize that we had many items in our showroom that did not fit a ‘traditional rug internet store’, but we still wanted to offer our discerning customers an opportunity to own a ‘one-of-’a-kind’ rug. Voila – we created ‘Rugs of the World Online’ as a division of Rugs of the World, Inc.  40+ years ago our mom went searching for rugs for our family's newly built home. To make a very long story short, lack of selection and poor customer service inspired her and dad to start their own rug business. Today, Rugs of the World is the oldest rug store in Tampa, Florida. Our family prides itself on providing the widest selection of rugs, at a fair and reasonable price, in an honorable, knowledgeable and trusty worthy environment.  Our long standing vendor relationships allow us to pass savings on to our customers - the rugs we sell are priced at or below internet prices.  We also know from experience that many customers ask us about rugs that have been ‘discontinued’.  It is our hope to expand this offering in the hopes that those that are looking for ‘the same exact rug’ they’ve owned previously, may still find it available on ‘Rugs of the World Online’.
