Mansour is the world's leading purveyor of antique rugs, carpets and tapestries. For generations we have selected the finest Persian, European and Oriental carpets and tapestries and provide the highest expertise and service to our customers and associates. Integrity is at the very core of our philosophy.

Pulling from our royal history in Iran, founder Mansour Soleimani opened the first Mansour rug gallery in London in 1984. The original Los Angeles showroom opened in 1993 and a New York showroom was added in 2019. Through the years, Mansour's mission has remained constant: To represent the most exquisite carpets and tapestries in the world and to share our knowledge of this timeless art steeped in history, culture and beauty. Today our mission remains solid, and we offer an unsurpassed selection that is equally at home in a modest residence as in a grand estate.

This passion and commitment has garnered us many accolades, including a Royal Warrant from the Prince of Wales since 2002. Such acknowledgement results from years of highly respected, skilled and professional work as we have made extraordinary carpets our identity and our life.

Alongside the carpets, rugs and tapestries that are rare treasures, we offer a large and growing variety of decorative floor coverings that have been selected for their timeless quality and beauty. We strive to be exceptional – and accessible – as we celebrate the essence of history, craftsmanship and inspiration from around the world.

There is a room in every home for a Mansour rug, and there is a Mansour rug for a room in any home. We know that every piece has a story and, because of its timeless beauty and value, will become a legacy to future generations.


Since 1155 tradesmen and women have served their sovereign by providing goods and services, from making regalia to repairing roofs and making fine jewelry. Originally the recognition was in the form of a Royal Charter which was granted to trade guilds, later known as livery companies. The earliest recorded Royal Charter was granted to the Weavers’ Company in 1155 by Henry II. In 1394 Dick Whittington obtained a Royal Charter for his own company, The Mercers, who traded in luxury fabrics. By the 15th century individual tradesmen were being recognized by means of a Royal Warrant of Appointment. One of the earliest was William Caxton, the first English printer.
