Our Story


Does any of this sound familiar?

  • "I really want an elegant and classy living room,  but  I’m TIRED of cheap rugs that are  falling apart after 2 years."

  • "I want something that is more modern looking, a fresh change  - I’m not sure about choosing the right size and colour."

  • "I have a beautiful home, but I want to add a little sizzle to an old room."


If so, you’ve come to the right place. 


Hi, I'm Nishant Mehrotra, manager at Indo Designer Rugs on 17th Ave SW, and I help Calgarians and interior designers learn how to choose the perfect rug for there home.

After spending the past 10 years in the family rug business, I’ve learned EXACTLY what it takes to find a beautiful handmade rug that enhances your existing decor by a few notches.

  • Having a dinner party and your friends immediately complementing your decor and elegant living room setting.

  • Never having to always to wear socks in the home. Feel the luxury of wool rugs on your bare feet.

  • Never having to worry about making a major stain, because you’re safe in the knowledge that it’s made of high quality lanolin rich wool that’s stain resistant.


We’re here to assist you in coordinating a size, colour and design that enhances your decor and suits your budget.


If you can’t find the right one in our showroom, we offer custom sizing and designing so you get exactly what you want.


Spilled red wine? We offer you specialized hand made rug cleaning. We offer rug repair in case your dog decides to chew on the fringe.


We want to make your home look good, which makes you feel good and ultimately affects how good you feel in other areas of your life.


Are you ready to make it happen?
