A division of Sunderland Carpet Centre, we are a family owned and operated business that has developed a reputation for quality floor covering that is second to none. Having traded from our present Sunderland location since 1987 and online since 2002, we stock the largest choice of quality rugs available in the North East of England. Over the years we have forged strong relations with our reputable suppliers, having established a network of prestigious brands in the industry, from Belgium to New York and many locations in the East. We ensure that all the companies that we deal with share our core values of sound business practice, unique well-designed products and quality manufactured goods.
In order to ensure the continuing quality of our products we handpick all of our Handknotted Oriental rug stock. We have various labelling systems in place to ensure that bonded child labour is never used during production of any of our rugs. These include Rugmark, Care & Fair and Kaleen. Rug Store NE is amongst a handful of retailers in the UK who are retail partners with Rugmark.
We stock a diverse range of rugs, with something to suit every possible interior décor and every household budget. These range from soft and sumptuous wool rugs for total relaxation, to quirky and eye-catching designs which are ideal for children’s rooms. All our rugs are manufactured to the highest quality standards, ensuring that although they are soft and lustrous but also robust and able to withstand any amount of wear and tear.
Our modern rugs are available in a range of designs, from streamlined monotone patterns to reworks of classic retro. Many of these are hand-woven in India using pure wool. Featuring a dazzling array of patterns from floral motifs to colourful and eye catching stripes such as our popular Estella Collection, where selected designs are accentuated with silky viscose yarns and delicate hand carved detailing. This ensures that even the busiest looking rug contains the most meticulous attention to detail in its production.
We stock an incredible array of traditional rugs. These are inspired by hand-woven patterns which have been handed down lovingly over the centuries. Rug making has long been a highly respected craft practised by skilled weavers, often living in nomadic communities throughout Central Asia and beyond. The production techniques of some examples were a closely guarded secret. The intricate weaving and stitch-work practised by these dextrous tribesmen have created rugs that were traded throughout the civilised world, becoming the must-have possessions for the royal houses and palaces of Europe. With such an illustrious history, the traditional rugs presented today are still based on many of these fine and intricate patterns. Our collection of hand knotted Afghan rugs bear stunning designs which would be recognisable to those Asian nomads. We also stock excellent reproduction designs, machine woven in Belgium using pure New Zealand, reinventing the traditional Turkoman designs, rendered in an authentic colour palette. These rugs are extremely durable and suitable for heavy wear areas around any home. They are produced in various sizes, starting at 150 x 80, right up to 340 x 240. For a truly authentic antique feel try our Vintage collection by Louis de Poortere, flat woven in wool and chenille with stunning colours that will bring your colour scheme to life.
There is absolutely nothing plain about our plain rugs. They are available in a diverse range of patterns, finishes and textures.

Plain rugs are available in a multitude of colours, enabling them to blend in effortlessly in any part of your décor. There are larger rugs which can cover larger expanses, giving the impression that any room is even larger than it seems.

If you are looking for a plain but robust rug, the Tweed Mocha features herringbone-cabled yarn.

On coming into any room after being outside in the UK weather, there can be few more welcome sights than a deep pile sheepskin rug by a fire. Although most people probably associate sheep fleece with being white, we provide for a range of colourful alternatives that will enhance any interior décor. These range from gold dusted white fleeces to vibrant pink or red colours that will really provide a focal point in any room they are located. As well as the traditional fleece-shaped style, these rugs are also available as a large rectangular shape with intricate geometric patterns. Fashioned from the finest dense sheepskin from Australian flocks by Bowron Sheepskins, they are transformed into the highest quality leather by craftsmen planners. They are then meticulously cut matched and stitched into intricately shearling rugs.
