Sarkis V. Kish Oriental Rugs, Inc., established in 1974, proudly serves Memphis and the Mid-South, providing quality handwoven oriental rugs at fair prices.
Sarkis Kish's 41 years of experience began working with his late uncle Zaven A. Kish at Goldsmith's Department Store in downtown Memphis.
The Kish family celebrates its Armenian heritage in their business. In 2000, Sarkis and Sarko sponsored the exhibition A Splendid Heritage: The Inscribed Rugs of Armenia at the Memphis Brooks Museum of Art. The exhibit, held in conjunction with the Armenian Rugs Society Symposium, featured rare and one-of-a-kind rugs from the Kish store. Dr. Arman Kirakossian, the Armenian Ambassador to the US, attended the grand opening.
Sarkis Kish, Jr. has traveled to Armenia every year since 1996. Sarko's trips to Armenia have meant so much to him on a personal level, but have also given him the opportunity to add to the collection of antique and semi-antique oriental rugs that he and his father specialize in at Sarkis V. Kish Oriental Rugs. Furthermore, Sarkis and Sarko have both received certification as oriental rug appraisers by the Oriental Rug Retailers of America (ORRA).
In addition to rug sales and appraisals, Sarkis V. Kish Oriental Rugs provides expert restoration and repair services, as well as, free home and office consultations. We also provide our customers with free information on the protection and care of oriental rugs. Lastly, we gladly work with designers, and trade-ins are welcome.
We invite you to come visit our showroom and hope to assist you in any way that we can.
