Kaoud Oriental Rug has been in business in Orange since 1962. The business itself began in New Haven in 1954, so this year will be the Kaoud Rug’s 60th Anniversary.
Jim Kaoud, who grew up in the business and came in to help his father in 1984. They’ve been running the business together since then. They own two stores, one at 463 Boston Post Road, Orange and the other at 594 Boston Post Road in Guilford
The current Orange location has been home to Kaoud Oriental Rug since 1987. So why after 27 years in one place do customers still walk in and say, “I never knew you were here.”
Unlike big box stores, Kaoud is not bound to package deals and it doesn’t sell items based on a commission. Quality materials and customer satisfaction is what drives this business.
At Kaoud, they enjoy what they do and strive to bring the best quality products for the best price to their customers.
Kaoud also offers excellent customer service, from assisting them in choosing a rug to cleaning, servicing and restoring their fine rugs.
The store now also offers quality broadloom rugs.
