“A delight for the eyes and mind”
Reviewed 25 December 2012

If you ever have trouble thinking of what do do in your living space, take a walk through here. There are so many ideas. One of the best places was Direct Rug Imports which offers beautiful Persian, Indian, and Turkish rugs. Quality is from wool to silk. There are new and antique rugs available is a variety of sizes and styles. We ended up getting one and having it shipped to us. We are delighted. The owner, Amir, was very helpful in instructing us as to how to know what we were looking at as to style, dye process, country of origin, and thread count.

So much to see, so huge an area to conquer. Was told during a tour that at one time this 2 square block building had it's own zip code. Plenty of places to eat, bank and shop inside. Can be overwhelming and quite disheartening when you see how the truly wealthy outfit and furnish their homes/condos. The best of the best, spare no expense. Great for ideas on building or renovating. Great selection of materials, lighting, plumbing fixtures, etc.

“It's a landmark”
Reviewed 23 September 2012

Of course you want to go into the Mart. There are so many beautiful product displays such as furniture and household items, but done in a way you have never seen. So classy, so historical, and so interesting to view.
