For over 80 years, the Couristan brand has been revered as an icon of style and quality for its exquisite area rugs, wall-to-wall carpeting and custom floorcovering fashions. Founded in 1926 by brothers Basil J. Couri and George J. Couri, Couristan, Inc. has been privately owned and operated by the Couri family for two generations. Today, the business has a global presence as it continues to thrive under the creative vision and innovative leadership of brothers George G. Couri, Chairman, and Ronald J. Couri, President and CEO.
Today, Couristan's handmade assortment consists of over 35 area rug collections. The company continues to import handmade area rugs from China, as well as from India, Nepal and Pakistan. Maintaining a strong belief that handmade area rugs are like works of art, each and every handmade area rug the company imports is hand-crafted with extraordinary detail and elegance. Styles range from antique-inspired looks, updated Persian designs, deeply contoured Orientals, casual-contemporary trends and 'green' eco-chic fashions.
