Naples, FL, October 1, 2022 – National luxury carpet and rug company STARK announced today the acquisition of Naples, Florida–based Designers' Rug Center, a showroom that offers wall-to-wall carpet and custom rugs in a wide variety of styles. The Designers’ Rug Center joins STARK in an acquisition made official on October 1, 2022. The company will now be Design Center by STARK, which will offer clients in the region an unrivaled product line and a higher level of service and support. 

STARK was established in 1938 and is renowned as the discerning designer’s go-to source for luxurious carpet and rugs. Designers’ Rug Center has been offering the Naples community hand-selected fine rugs from around the globe since 1992. In combining the best components of both businesses, Design Center by STARK will have the same high-quality standards for product, service and selection clients have grown to expect from both brands.

“We are thrilled to now offer our clients and the interior design community a greatly enhanced array of the finest quality rugs and wall-to-wall carpet thanks to our affiliation with STARK,” says Designers’ Rug Center founder Chris Smith. “After 30 years in Southwest Florida, we’re confident our past and future clients will love our expanded showroom and increased inventory of the latest luxurious carpet and rugs available.”

The downtown Naples showroom stocks about 5,000 rugs in a wide variety of styles and price points including oriental masterpieces valued at more than $100,000. As Design Center by STARK, the Naples showroom will reside at 2150 Tamiami Trail N, Naples, Florida 34103.

“STARK has been committed to Florida design for many years,” shared STARK CEO Chad Stark. “We look forward to expanding design relationships and presence in the Naples area, and we are thrilled to combine Designers’ Rug Center’s 30 years of experience and local expertise with STARK’s heritage and resources.”
