Jacksonville’s Foremost Authority on Rugs for Over 100 Years

Michael’s Rug Studio is the result of decades of experience and a life-long passion coming together to create the best hand made rugs in Jacksonville. Owner Michael Mussallem began his career in rugs at the age of 13, learning rug cleaning techniques passed down through his family for generations. Back in 1897, his great-grandfather established Mussallem Area Rug Specialists as the foremost rug cleaning company in the Jacksonville area. This innovative entrepreneur shared his knowledge and love for the craft with his descendants, and the business has been passed down from father to son for over a century.

Generations of Talent and Wisdom Behind the Superior Rug Studio of Jacksonville

Michael grew up surrounded by rugs, with his father and grandfather instilling in him the importance of a strong work ethic and a commitment to excellence. He carefully cultivated his skills over the years, and his dedication to the family craft grew ever stronger. In 2012, Michael became owner and president of Mussallem Area Rug Specialists, employing his knowledge and expertise to assist clients from Jacksonville and surrounding areas. An expert rug identifier, he can quickly determine the origin, age, and value of various rugs from around the world. He treats every rug with the utmost care as a treasured work of art. Each is hand-washed individually to preserve its beauty, vibrancy, and longevity.

Traditional Rugs

They feature highly detailed, ornate patterns, often with a distinct border, numerous colors, floral patterns, and central medallions in shapes such as diamonds or hexagons. Kilims, soumaks, and dhurries are traditional rugs.

Contemporary Rugs

They include bold contrasts, bright colors, and free-form, geometric, or architecture-inspired shapes. Some have consistent patterns across the rug, while others have a single image in one area. This style is the most diverse and often lends a fun, playful vibe to the room.

Transitional Rugs

Usually, transitional rugs feature an all-over design but with less detail and no border or a traditional pattern in a modern color scheme. They combine the classic elegance of a traditional rug with the more casual, relaxed feeling of a contemporary rug.
