Boston Home, the sister publication of Boston Magazine, sought the opinion of an array of industry building and design experts in selecting what is one of the most highly anticipated honors in the region. Boston Home noted about Dover Rug & Home: “Dover’s selection of rugs alone puts the shop on par with Boston’s finest carpet retailers; customer service brings it a notch above. Owner Mahmud Jafri makes it his mission to equip visitors with a working knowledge of rug styles, weaving techniques and qualities. First-time callers may find themselves enthralled by a brief history of rug-making as Jafri and his staff help them sift through design options and identify that perfect heirloom-worthy piece.”

“It is truly an honor to be recognized as the ‘Best of’ for Boston Home,” said owner Mahmud Jafri. “We have always been proud of the extensive and unique collection we are able to offer our customers. But just as importantly, we are committed to providing the best service to everyone who walks through our showroom door.
