Jaunty was founded in Los Angeles in 1979 with permanent showrooms or warehouse facilities in Los Angeles, Atlanta, Dallas, Las Vegas and High Point.
Jaunty was the first United States based company to establish a hand made rug manufacturing joint venture with the Chinese Government. Jaunty also has strategically aligned partners of hand made rugs in India.
With over 70 years of combined wholesale and retail history in better to high-end furniture, specialty and department stores, Jaunty’s marketing team excels at unique and sophisticated systems for the presentation of hand made rugs.
Known for style, quality and value, we excel at new and innovative designs and constructions. Vertically integrated, we spin and dye our own wool to maintain quality control. All our rug designs are hand made in tufted, woven and hand knotted qualities. We maintain a wide selection of programmed rugs as well as many one-of-a-kind works of art.
Jaunty revolutionized the Area Rug display tools with the introduction of its 18” square sample program and ‘ShowTime’ Marketing System in the 1990’s.
In 2007, Jaunty was the first Rug Company in the U.S. to stop offering its rugs to Discount Online Retailers and thus effectively protect its Brick & Mortar retailers.
