About Burnside Rugs

About James

Burnside Rugs was founded in 2010 by James Burnside and his wife Anna. Their knowledge and experience in the oriental handmade rug trade have been passed down over three generations. 

Each rug is intricately made, guaranteeing exceptional quality and design. Working alongside the best rug makers in the industry, no two products are the same. When you buy through Burnside Rugs, you will receive a unique, superior quality and long-lasting rug.

Our domestic rugs are available at prices to suit all budgets. You can either come visit us at the shop, or we will bring some of our designs directly to you in the comfort of your own home.

With thousands of designs available, we have something to complement both contemporary and traditional settings. To ensure you are 100% happy with your choice of rug, you can take advantage of our home trial service. This allows you to not only see how the rug looks under all lighting, but also how it feels underfoot.

We also offer a commercial service. Working closely with interior designers, James has supplied handmade oriental rugs in the hotel, restaurant, and retail sectors. Our carpets are also popular with film sets and photo shoots. 

Additional products and services offered at Burnside Rugs include an expert rug repair service and beautiful Kilim furniture. You can learn more about these products and services by navigating the menu above.

Offering affordable prices to suit all budgets, no project is too big or small. Contact us today to discuss your requirements. Alternatively, you can come visit us in our Knaresborough shop to speak to a member of our friendly team.
