Mission: Our mission is to be an innovative force in the interior design industry while preserving centuries-old traditions in all categories of rugs and home décor. As a member of the Sustainable Home Furnishings Council, Safavieh supports green design and manufacturing ...
In the past thirty years Safavieh has come a long way from an artisan family business to a high tech corporation with very sophisticated operations in terms of manufacturing and distribution. We’ve grown from one showroom on Madison Avenue to become an international player with two million square feet of warehouse space and our own manufacturing facilities on three continents. We now drop-ship thousands of packages daily to end-use customers on behalf of our retailers in all 50 states, plus Canada, South America, Europe and Asia.
Within the home furnishings industry, Safavieh is most successful in combining the best of high tech and high touch. We’ve always been considered the authority on fine quality, craftsmanship and style. We’ve kept that focus as we grew our logistics and warehousing capabilities, leading to strong partnerships with the largest retailers in the country. We serve every channel of distribution, from big box stores to multi-unit chains to designer showrooms with the right products and price points to build their businesses.
Since Safavieh’s inception in 1914, consumer education has been our core philosophy. Informed customers and our commitment to quality have helped us become the world’s finest weaver of luxury rugs. That commitment has been rewarded with numerous industry accolades and recognition by America’s top designers and architects.
Safavieh began as a supplier of antique Oriental rugs to leading interior designers. We continue to curate one of the country’s finest collections of antique rugs from the great weaving centers of the world, and to work with notable style leaders globally. As a result, our archives are limitless.
We study fabric, color and lifestyle trends two to three years before developing a new collection in our New York design studios. Cycles often begin in the fashion world before filtering to products for the home, so we look for trends in couture clothing and color forecasts as well.
Safavieh creates its designer-quality rugs in the major rug weaving centers of the world: Persia, India, Tibet, Nepal, China and Pakistan. We have the unique ability to produce each Safavieh rug in the region best-suited to each particular design. Although our artisans are scattered far and wide, they are all equally talented. But each country, city and village has its own time-honored techniques and special look – qualities we incorporate into our designs.
Based in the United States since 1978, Safavieh combines rug and home furnishings showrooms with a varied wholesale business, supplied by its own production lines from the classical rug weaving centers of the world. The company is headquartered in Port Washington, New York. Permanent showrooms are open year round in Atlanta, Las Vegas and High Point, NC.
Safavieh began its licensing program in 2006 with Thomas O’Brien, a longtime customer whose taste we had admired for decades. In 2007, we successfully introduced a highly anticipated Martha Stewart Rugs collection. In 2009 we launched Safavieh Couture, a licensing program with renowned designers including Jamie Drake, David Easton, Suzanne Kasler and Thom Filicia. January 2011 marked the introduction of the coveted Ralph Lauren and Lauren Ralph Lauren rug collections by Safavieh.
The uniqueness and beauty of Safavieh’s own programmed collections have been acknowledged with the America’s Magnificent Carpets Awards, and our unparalleled service has been recognized with awards such as the Home Decorators Collection Vendor of the Year.
At Safavieh we provide our customers with immediate delivery on over 3000 programmed designs — each in more than 8 sizes and in several color schemes. All are in stock, ready to be shipped at short notice anywhere in the world. We pride ourselves on our reliability in stock position and shipping. In an age of high tech, we have achieved the unique distinction of combining state of the art operations with ages-old standards of quality and craftsmanship.
Employment opportunities at Safavieh include positions in customer service, sales and marketing, digital marketing, data management, photography, interior design, copywriting, product design, human resources, accounting, office services and many more.
Our main headquarters is located on the north shore of Long Island, between the historic town of Roslyn and the scenic harbors of Port Washington. We also offer many rewarding positions at our retail locations in the N.Y. metropolitan area as well as in our showrooms and warehouses across the U.S

I applied through an employee referral. The process took 3 days. I interviewed at Safavieh LLC (Long Island City, NY) in April 2014.
fairly easy, provided a typical interview process. Pretty much asked to talk about myself and asked what I did in the past and asked if i'm willing to do what it takes to succeed.
