Business Profile & Description
It's a labor of love for me" says David Martinous, "and we only offer top quality products coupled with personal service and knowledge that draws customers from around the state." Martinous Oriental Rug Company is family owned and operated and has been serving Arkansas since 1923. Our showroom has over 2,000 new and antique rugs in stock from Pakistan, Iran, India and other exotic locales. Our focus is service as well as sales, as we are one of only a few companies in the nation that offer the submersion handwash cleaning process. Founded in 1923 in Springfield, Missouri, Martinous Oriental Rug Company was then operated by Carl John Martinous and his cousin Charles Malick, along with Carl's three brothers Phil, Shamel and Ben (pictured at right with their mother Mary Joseph Martinous). The Martinous brothers traveled throughout the region the bring their exotic Persian and Oriental carpets and rugs to the people of Arkansas, Oklahoma and Missouri. Their first storefront was established by Carl John and his wife Dorothy (at right) in 1939 on Rogers Avenue in Fort Smith in the town's first shopping center. That year also saw the introduction of professional carpet and rug cleaning to the state of Arkansas, offered exclusively by the Martinous family.
