The History of Nahigian Brothers

Sarkis Nahigian opened his first Chicago Oriental Rug store in 1890. From the beginning, this included Oriental rug cleaning and Persian Rug cleaning. By the 1920s, Nahigian Brothers had opened a 5-story galleria, with each floor featuring rugs from a different country. This was the largest and most fashionable oriental rug store in the United States.

Here, on Wabash Avenue they became the heart of high-society’s center of opulence. This family business also cleaned and maintained oriental rugs, Persian rugs, as well as non-oriental rugs, for households and businesses throughout the city. Then Nahigian Brothers moved to Michigan Avenue, and eventually opened Nahigian Brothers Galleries at Marshall Field’sTM.

Today, the Minasian Rug Company is honored to carry the Nahigian Brothers collection of antique oriental rugs, along with their tradition of service; including expert hand cleaning, repair and restoration at the Minasian store in Evanston.
