How to initiate a return:
Email us at email@example.com
Let us know the reason for the return
We’ll reply with your shipping label and instructions on how to package your rug to ensure that it makes it back to our warehouse looking just as good as when it was delivered. (Hint: it’s easiest if you keep your original packaging material!)
When we receive your returned rug(s), we’ll refund you the full cost of the rug using the original form of payment. You should expect to see your refund within four weeks of giving your package to the return shipper, however, in many cases, you will receive a refund more quickly. This time period includes the transit time for us to receive your return from the shipper (5-10 business days), the time it takes us to process your return once we receive it (3-5 business days) and the time it takes your bank to process our refund request (5-10 business days).
We do not accept returns after the 5 day complimentary return window.
Do you sell rug pads?
The King’s House Atelier can cut a custom cushy felt custom cut rug pad specifically for your rug. Through June 30th, 2018 we are happy to offer complimentary custom-cut rug pads with the delivery of your final purchase.

USPAP-Certified Rug Appraisals
Heirloom rugs increase in value as they age, so it is very important to have certified appraisals of your Oriental rugs to identify the origin, age and value of each rug. A current certified appraisal is essential for insurance and estate purposes.
“You can add value to something if it has an interesting past.” – Christin Terrell
King’s House Oriental Rugs offers USPAP certified appraisals paired with a rare expertise in Oriental rugs, creating appraisals of the utmost integrity. USPAP certified appraisals are widely recognized by the IRS and the United States court system as a standard guideline practice for appraisals.
We are happy to appraise any antique or new Oriental rug from anywhere in the country. We can begin this process when you initially email us photographs of the rug, along with dimensions and any original documentation you may have.
We are able to accurately appraise your rug either in person or via email and photographs, both of which are USPAP certified. For more information on certified rug appraisals, please call 205.244.1933 or email us
