The Tufenkian Showroom on the 14th floor of the Chicago Merchandise Mart offers a full selection of handmade carpets from our Core Tibetan and Armenian lines. Woven from 100% virgin Tibetan and Armenian wool in a variety of knot constructions, the carpets in the Chicago Showroom reflect contemporary, transitional, and traditional patterns.
In addition to offering our Tibetan and Armenian Collections, the Chicago Showroom offers our Designers' Reserve Collection, a collaboration between James Tufenkian and renowned designers such as Barbara Barry, Kevin Walz, Vicente Wolf and Mark Pollack.
The inviting environment and knowledgeable staff of Tufenkian's Chicago Showroom make it easy to select a carpet for immediate delivery or to design an exclusive custom rug. A full range of contract, residential, and hospitality services are offered, and we are privileged to offer those services to the Chicago design community.

Her hands-on approach with her clients, design aesthetic, and practical knowledge of project management are invaluable to her design, architecture and retail clientele. She specializes in helping clients determine which of Tufenkian’s hundreds of designs would best establish the optimal mood and palate. When our hundreds of existing designs are not enough, Emily offers custom and hand tufted options. Some of Tufenkian’s most stellar public installations originated in the Chicago showroom. Emily expertly guides clients through the entire selection process from vague idea to final installation, helping determine design coordinates, working within time and financial parameters, while explaining the unique value and beauty of the Tufenkian product.
