The Chesterfield business that brings a touch of the exotic to Derbyshire
Finding the right floor covering to complement your home isnt always easy, but John and Pam Rhodes of Select Interiors, the Oriental Rug Shop on Chatsworth Road in Chesterfield, are on hand to help. John has decades of experience, having been introduced to handwoven oriental rugs in London in the seventies. Now he and his wife have an established business with an Aladdins showroom hardly a cave of the most glorious carpets, rugs and kilims, all sourced adhering to ethical principles from around the world.
Visiting the showroom is far from the usual retail experience. Personal attention from the enthusiastic and knowledgeable proprietors goes without saying. The couple are obviously passionate about their business and are always searching for new ranges, more fashionable colours and designs, as well as ensuring a plentiful stock of old favourites.
Rugs of course come in many different sizes and finding just the right combination of design and dimensions can be a minefield. Select Interiors offers a home trial service to ensure that what looks good in the showroom looks even better in the customers home. And in the unlikely event that Select Interiors doesnt have what youre looking for, John and Pam will endeavor to find it for you.
As well as oriental rugs (the term oriental usually applies to hand knotted rugs that are produced in a wide area stretching from the Bosphorus in eastern Europe to the far China Sea), Select Interiors stocks some highly original contemporary designs, such as the hand-woven rugs from Nepal. The high quality materials and processes used in their production, fabulous designs and the option to include inlaid silk combine to create some stunning effects.
Select Interiors also offers a complete care and repair service for hand-made rugs, kilims and carpets.
A trip to the Oriental Rug Shop may be the nearest we in the county and beyond can get to a visit to the east but if you ignore the fact that your car is in fact parked in Chesterfield, you could easily be hundreds of miles away in a much more exotic location. The showroom is festooned with richness of colour and texture, and each piece of merchandise has its own story to tell.
