Suite 107, Boston, MA 02118




Join Boston interior designer Heidi Pribell and Cynthia First, owner of First Rugs, for a lively, fact filled walk through of our curated vignettes featuring antique furniture by Styylish and others, paired with our fresh vintage and contemporary hand-knotted rugs. Enjoy our afternoon Persian tea with small bites and fragrant desserts. Our SoWa showroom is an edited collection representing our centuries deep repertoire of rugs & design. 


First Rugs has been sourcing and selling rugs for 25+ years in the Greater Boston area. Cynthia First came from the antiques world, curating and sourcing worldwide; this led to a partnership with a fourth-generation Persian rug dealing family from Shiraz, Iran. Expertise, passion, and a true love of artful and authentic hand-knotted rugs, from regions all around the world blossomed from the partnership, and First Rugs was born.

We are often tasked by designers to find, "that perfect rug"! A challenge at which we excel. The team at First Rugs in Boston, Acton, and NYC work seamlessly to procure the best examples of hand knotted floor art. Custom woven runners for stair installations, oversize/palace size, vintage tribal, Gabbeh, veg. dyed, to the finest weave silk, and so much more, can all be found at First Rugs.

We work with you and will always honor our lifetime credit of exchange, confidently standing behind every item we sell.

Showrooms in Acton MA, Boston’s SoWa Art+Design District, and NYC.
