H. C. Nahigian & Sons
Handmade Rugs – Broadloom Carpeting – Cleaning – Repair
The Nahigian story begins with Hovsep C. Nahigian opening his first store in the Chicago loop in 1915. Grandfather Nahigian was known throughout the midwest as one of the foremost connoisseurs of Oriental rugs. His first store featured both new and antique fine Persian rugs. His sons, Dee and Jack, both graduates of Northwestern University, joined their father in business in the 1930’s. The H. C. Nahigian Company moved to West Chicago Avenue in Chicago and was incorporated in 1934 as H. C. Nahigian and Sons, Inc.
During the next thirty years, the company grew to become a well respected oriental rug dealer and carpet retailer. In addition, H. C. Nahigian & Sons became very well known in the Chicagoland area for their rug and carpet cleaning as well as rug restoration services. Then in 1960s Hovsep Nahigian’s grandsons, Dee Nahigian Jr. and Jack Nahigian Jr., joined their fathers in the business. In 1964, the company moved to its present location on Golf Road in Skokie.
In 2018, we closed our storefront in Skokie and kept our cleaning plant open, so we could continue giving the best service to our customers. To this day we work with our customers rugs and carpets, repairing and cleaning with the same dedication to quality since 1915.
