Frederick Law Olmsted MuseumFrederick Law Olmsted Museum

Dover Rug & Home has been selected to supply rugs and carpets to the Frederick Law Olmsted Museum, a National Historic site in Brookline, Mass. Olmsted is considered the founder of American landscape architecture and created such urban parks as New York's Central Park.

"It was a very competitive process and I am honored Dover Rug & Home was selected to work with the Frederick Law Olmsted National Park," said Mahmud Jafri, owner of Dover Rug & Home. "We are looking forward to providing the site with an array rugs and carpets from our unique collection."

Dover Rug hopes to install the rugs and complete the project by Thanksgiving. The project includes the north parlor, front hall, library, sitting room, dining room and plant room in the museum. The company will use 100 percent sisal rugs with wide cotton binding for the project.
