What started as a hobby for Mohammad, a mechanical engineer, turned into a full-time occupation and a successful business.

At our core, we specialize in high-quality, authentic Persian carpets and continue to add modern lines from leading manufacturers into our inventory. Apart from our in-house collections we represent leading European and North American collections of contemporary, tribal and traditional carpets.

umbra & lux

Umbra & lux is a recently born design studio based in Vancouver that builds hand-crafted, artistic lighting solutions. We focus on combining art, technology, and minimalist designs to create environmentally sensitive sculptural lighting.

We believe that being surrounded by beauty is vital to our well being and that nature’s spectacle is an ideal source of artistic inspiration. We aim to create beautiful objects that respect our planet by using upcycled materials and the latest energy-efficient LED technologies.
