I visited Carpet cellar on my last trip to India and had the pleasure of being helped my Mr. Hasan. It is a great place to find area rugs to fit all your need. They have a vast selection of one of a kind rugs. I found the staff there to be extremely helpful and knowledgeable about latest trends.

Best place in the world to buy a quality lifetime carpet
Jun 2019 • Business
Recently went to India where I decided to invest in some more quality carpets. I love hard wood floors but there is nothing more beautiful then a hard wood floor with a stunning carpet.
We bought carpets 9 years ago when we were in India for 4 months. We bought a few from carpet cellar and some from other places. As time as gone on we have grown to love the carpet cellar carpets more and more and regretted not having bought more.
This trip I decided - it’s time - and well prices are still remarkable for the quality. These are carpets that truly last your life. They were so patient with me .... spent hours looking and thinking about our home and our taste. In the end, after narrowing it ..... landed on many!
My husband was thrilled when they arrived. Nicely shipped and arrived very quickly. They are stunning and surprise us how much more we love them then we even thought.
Only regret- not getting them years earlier!

Truly the mecca for carpets in Delhi
Jul 2019 • Couples
The Carpet Cellar is truly an amazing place for carpets of all kinds, old & new, antique and modern pieces. Large, extra large & small. From carpets that can cost you an arm & a leg to more affordable pieces. Carpets, dhuries, kilims - you can find everything here. And, what is more, you can be sure you won’t be taken for a ‘ride’ here as you may be in many of the other ‘carpet showrooms’ in the city, especially those in the large hotels.
Sheel Chandra, the patriarch of the ‘Chandra family’ had a passion for carpets and built an amazing g collection from all over the world and later decided to make his passion his business. He has passed on this passion to his sons, Pawan & Nishant, and you are likely to meet one of them in the showroom. Engage them in conversation, and you can spend hours looking at carpets and learning about them - and you will definitely leave with a few gems you discover!
The Carpet Cellar has two showrooms in Delhi, one in Anand Lok which is the main showroom, and the other on the Mehrauli-Gurgaon Road, just next to the Sultanpu metro station and above the Ishatvam (a well known handicrafts showroom) store. I visited the latter, had been there earlier too, and this is a huge warehouse with thousands of carpets of all kinds and sizes. But do not be fazed, just talk to the manager or Nishant, if he is there, tell him what you are looking for, and soon his staff will be pulling out dozens, and dozens for your viewing!! All the while, Nishant (or the manager) will be telling you all about the carpets, the origin, old or new, antique or modern - and I will be surprised if you do not end up buying - more than what you had planned, and walking away with a large satisfied smile!!
Do visit. Here are pics of a few kilims I viewed.

People feel welcome at this treasure house, even if you are there just to look at beautiful carpets. Theres always a story, always a history, that this wonderful owner will tell you, about his carpets. Worth a visit to see , touch and feel these amazing works of art. Enjoyed my time there and got myself an amazing antique.

A gem, even online

I have known the Carpet Cellar for years, and whenever I get a chance I love stopping by to see some of their wonderful carpets and learn about the history and making. This is a collection like no other, and it shows! But since I live far away, I also love following their social media accounts and get that glimpse of carpet beauty on my timeline!

Gorgeous carpets and brilliant service.

Came across this fantastic shop quite by chance. They have an incredible selection of carpets and kilims, including antique and modern. It's a family run business and this reflects in the amazing service you get. I will certainly be returning on my next visit.

A treasure for carpets lovers ✨
Dec 2018 • Solo
I visited the Carpet Cellar on a trip to Delhi & purchased 2 beautiful carpets.
The place is like a secret atelier situated in South Delhi at Anand Lok block.
Amazing customer service & explanations,
professional staff & the lady owner (I don’t remember the name) is such a lovely person with a true passion for her job.
It is a Family legacy as her uncle was a collector of carpets from all over the world!
I bought a beautiful Tibetan Meditation Rug & a Sarpalasi Afghani carpet.
The collection of carpets there is one of the best I ever seen in my entire life.
Really a special place.
I will be back !
Thank you Carpet Cellar💫

Beautiful Carpets, People you can Trust
May 2018 • Solo
This one of the best carpets shops I now visit to buy all my quality rugs. Despite living in Dubai where there is a wide selection available, I know I can trust these guys to provide great quality and super value. They had a wide selection of carpets made from high-quality wools and silks. Its not often you can find a carpet manufacturer who offers such super quality value with a high level of trust. The last visit I purchased another two carpets and the team expertly wrapped them for me to carry home care of Emirates. Thank you Pranav for carrying on in your Father's tradition and honouring his memory!

Great Carpet collection and no pressure
Apr 2018 • Business
This low key carpet shop is not your typical Indian carpet store. They’re friendly staff allow you to look at the collection stress free without being pressured into buying. I purchased a beautiful piece inspired by a Persian print. Very happy with my purchase.
