Founded in 1956 by Joseph Benardout, Thames Carpets is a name trusted for unparalleled service and expertise. The present owner, Bahram Babreh is pictured here weaving a rug on our celebrated 40th anniversary. Having worked as a carpet weaver from a young age, he has since gained invaluable expertise and experience in all areas of the carpet world.
In 1980 he formed a team of world-class repairers in Lincolnshire that dealt with many prestige clients. Bahram worked regularly with Thames Carpets and when Joseph’s sons, David and Cecil retired he was delighted to be given the opportunity to continue running the business.
We boast an extensive collection of decorative antique carpets, the majority coming to our possession from stately homes. A highlight of the collection is this early 19th century, French inspired hand woven in Pondicherry carpet that spent its life in Penicuik house. We are delighted to present this exquisite collection for view and purchase.
We are primarily known for our outstanding rug cleaning and restoration services. We have reached exceptional levels in stain removal and are now able to remove all types of stains while maintaining both quality and lustre. Restoration is carried out by our team of highly skilled and experienced craftsmen.
Thames Carpets also offers a complete rug weaving service. We pride ourselves in the ability to weave identical copies of antique carpets, as well as innovative contemporary designs.
Our hassle free collection and delivery service still operates throughout London and its surrounding counties.
