Unveiling the history of Oriental Rug Palace/ORP Design Center...
Owners, Nick (Niranjan) and Asha Agarwal exported rugs from India for many years before moving to the United States. After moving to Omaha in 1983 they started importing rugs to retailers in and around the Omaha area.
In 1989, Nick and Asha opened Oriental Rug Palace (ORP), their own retail showroom. Importing handmade rugs from India, China, Pakistan, Afghanistan and Nepal, quickly made Oriental Rug Palace the go to location in Omaha for beautiful quality rugs. In 1996, they moved their business to the current location, a 14,000 square foot showroom including furniture, art, accessories, lamps, and of course imported handmade rugs. After adding more inventory to the home side of the business Nick and Asha also added a professional designer and started referring to their business as Oriental Rug Palace/ORP Design Center.
Expanding this family business was made possible because of the loyal customers who have extended their support and encouragement throughout the years. Our customers have faith in our products and we continue to provide quality products and superior customer service.
“Our customers are our family, we look forward to who will be dropping in each day”.
“We are blessed to have the privilege of being able to build a solid business that is based on working with an art form that we truly love”.
“We enjoy opening up the world of handmade rugs to our customers, to invite them to share in and experience the mystique and the exquisiteness of the rugs and our culture.”
