Though Clive Daniel Home is best-known for its award-winning interior design services and vast selection of high-end furnishings, the showroom also offers one of the finest and most complete collections of Oriental and Persian rugs in all of Florida. Moeen Mehri, Clive Daniel Home’s rug expert, has traveled the world to bring the most magnificent handmade rugs here to Naples. His finds include antique Serapi, Oushak, Kerman, Heriz, Kashan, Isfehan, and Tabriz rugs, as well as modern designs in materials like silk, wool, and natural fibers.
“When designing your home, the best place to begin the design process is from the floor up,” Mehri said. “We are all about the power of design and how well the carpet complements the furnishings and interiors of each home.”

POPULAR TYPES OF RUGS TO CONSIDER
Oriental – Always a symbol of wealth, these rugs are a wise investment since their value never decreases. Oriental rugs are available in a variety colors, patterns, and even materials.
Persian – Persian rugs are a kind of Oriental hand-woven in Iran (formerly Persia). Their classic motifs (such as pomegranates, flowers, jugs, and lotuses) come in traditional colors like blue, red, brown, beige and gold.
Flat Weave Kilim – Flat Weave Kilim rugs are known for their unique linear design, bold colors and flat weave. They are also more plush than traditional Oriental rugs.
Dhurrie – Dhurrie rugs are another popular design made in India, featuring geometric shapes with animals, flowers and people woven into the design in a chiseled-looking fashion.
Chevron – Chevron is a rug pattern that features zigzag V-shaped patterns. This style dates back to 1800 BC, and was first found in ancient Greece. It is similar to herringbone, which also has a long history, dating back to ancient Egypt.
