What carpet sizes do you have in stock?

Size will often - even usually - be the first consideration when selecting a rug, before even price or age.

Availability of sizes

Due to the brokerage nature of our business, the sizes in our stock will generally reflect those sizes most generally in demand in the current UK and International markets.

This has meant that for many years now we have always carried a very wide range in the larger room sizes which have been a dominant trend of the recent decorative period.

Extra Large Sizes

We offer an extremely good choice in the extra-large sizes over 14’ x 10’ (over 400 x 300 cm), including oversizes up to 24’ x 15’. We additionally have some extremely long runners, up to 35’ long, which are very hard to find as anyone with a long hallway or corridor will testify.

Due to the physical difficulties in photographing such extra-large items, we are currently illustrating only a few examples on this website, to give an idea of the types and designs we have in stock. This special selection will be continually added to as new photographs become available. In the meantime, if you are looking for any very large carpets, of any style, age or origin, please call or send an enquiry to find out what we have in stock.

Unusual and rare sizes

We will also normally have an excellent choice in the more rare and unusual sizes, particularly in our antique stock. This is because the older Oriental rugs and carpets were often made to fulfil a specific function in the weaver’s home, or were made in sizes traditional to their locality. They were seldom made in the popular ‘western’ sizes which are catered for in today’s more export-orientated production.
