HOME DESIGN | New Rug Studio Opens at 3 Suburban Toms Price Stores


Toms Price announced the recent opening of three rug galleries at its Lincolnshire, Skokie and Wheaton locations to enhance the customer shopping experience. The Rug Studio carries thousands of rugs and is centrally located in each store, merchandised by price for ease in shopping. Rug specialists are also available to assist customers with hand-knotted and machine rug options at all price levels.

“While we always carried rugs at Toms Price, we are responding to the growing trend and demand for households with hardwood flooring. These homeowners want to make a statement with their floor coverings and rugs are a great starting point,” said Lori Stengren, Vice President of Marketing and Merchandising for Toms Price. “These new rug galleries are the culmination of our extensive research to provide rug options at every price level.”

Home consultations or in-store appointments with The Rug Studio are a great first step, according to David Pease, Hand Knotted Rug Specialist and Rug Buyer at Toms Price.

“Floor covering specialists guide customers to make an informed buying decision concerning color, fiber and appropriate rug size for the room. The ideal situation is to begin with a rug you love as the foundation for designing an entire room around it,” said Pease. “While it may not always work out that way, it is easier to pull colors and fabrics from the rugs. Our rug specialists are also able to bring several rugs to a client’s home at no charge.”

While all Toms Price locations carry rugs and employ floor covering specialists, The Rug Studio is open specifically at the Lincolnshire, Skokie and Wheaton stores. The Rug Studio offers specialty installations like staircase runners; wall-to-wall carpeting and provides specialized cleaning and restoration of hand-knotted and antique rugs. There are also 10,000 additional rugs on kiosks within the stores to peruse.
