Located in the heart of Buckhead and considered a Buckhead tradition, Yamin's not only offers the rare collectable and museum quality piece, but antique, semi-antique and new hand-knotted rugs, needlepoints, kelim and decorative, affordable rugs. The company's good standing within the industry and the community has been repeatedly recognized, including nominations for the prestigious "Retailer of The Year Award" and selection to "Best of Atlanta" in 2009.
No matter the origin, the age, the construction or style, each piece is a statement of Yamin's commitment to quality, integrity and honest value. Estate appraisals and consultation, as well as expert restoration and professional cleaning are additional services offered at Yamin’s. As stated by Manouchehr Yamin, "Each rug is a personal reflection of what my wife and I stand for. As one might say, we built our reputation one rug at a time".
In 1975 a young University of Tennessee MBA graduate, Manouchehr Yamin, and his wife of nine months, Gerlinde, took their first steps in fulfilling a family tradition of integrity and credibility in the rug business by forming Yamin's Oriental Rugs. For the young couple, this was more than the continuation into a second generation of business – it was rather an expression of a deep personal appreciation and a keen passion for the art form of fine rugs. Today, this fervor is reflected in every single piece, hand selected and imported directly by Yamin’s from the major rug production centers around the world.
To further promote public appreciation of this noble and ancient craft, Yamin, a collector, curator and scholar of the art, began seminars and lectures. Soon the team of Gerlinde and Manouchehr expanded to include John, now with the team for over 25 years. This in itself is another testimony to the standards and values of the Yamin Family. With Yamin, one doesn't simply buy a rug – one acquires the knowledge and understanding of what it takes to create this "art for your floor". The buying experience is not only enhanced, but the continual joy of ownership is ensured. As a senior board member of the Oriental Rug Retailers Association, Yamin continues to play an active role in upholding ethical standards in the industry with a commitment to the preservation of the craft.
