Floors are among the most modest of household surfaces and are liable to succumb to the vapors if left exposed in polite company. Cover your floor's shame with today's Groupon: for $150, you get $400 worth of merchandise at the Medallion Rug Gallery.
Owned by lifelong rug enthusiast Amir Amidi, Medallion Rug Gallery has been furnishing quality floor coverings since 1978. Like a flying carpet mausoleum, every possible surface in the Medallion showrooms are covered in vibrant, intricately woven rugs. With imports stacked from all over the world, overwhelmed rug purchasers can seek succor from a knowledgeable staff member who will help you narrow down your desired color scheme, design, and price. Once a tentative decision has been reached, prospective buyers are encouraged to take the rug home for a risk-free trial run to make sure its presence doesn't spook your skittish furniture. Rugs start at $150 for some clearance items and can reach to thousands of dollars for venerable, antique pieces.
Buyers interested in the history and terminology of rugs will find an extensive educational section on Medallion's website, along with galleries of available rugs.
