ShorelineStyle.com is wholly owned and operated by its parent corporation Rugs As Art, Inc. The family-owned business began in an 800 sq. ft. store in 1986 on Florida's west coast. With humble beginnings, the company was founded on the principles of providing quality area rugs with superior selection, outstanding customer service and unbeatable pricing. That selection has always included top quality traditional Orientals, world-class contemporary designs and many levels of classics in between.
In 1989, the company moved to a larger location including a new 4,500 sq. ft. retail space. Continued growth and national recognition were bolstered by aggressive advertising, including television and print media. The company was one of the first to go on-line (1992) offering various rugs for purchase and the clientel grew to both national and international. Focusing on those same principles of selection, service and savings gave the company a loyal following, allowing it to expand in 2001 into a new 18,000 sq. ft. retail space. Fourteen foot ceilings, handsome hardwood flooring, excellent lighting and efficient rack systems accommodated several thousand rugs, accessories and furnishings.
Fast foward 32 years from those humble beginnings and the award-winning company (recently named Best Rug Store in America) has grown to include ShorelineStyle.com, its ecommerce coastal living presence servicing the globe.
