Homespice Décor started as a company called J Quilts Co. In the beginning, Junior Gupta was the only employee and traveled from trade show to trade show displaying imported quilts from India. The quilt business grew, and Junior was able to gain a great deal of knowledge concerning customer service and my market. However, as with life, a new change was on the horizon.
Junior's father, Anand Gupta Sr., has always been a big influence in his life. For several years, they discussed entering the braided rug industry. Since neither of them were experts in the braided rug industry, they enlisted the help of renown experts in the field. One gentleman actually had a PhD in braiding and had worked with NASA on the Mission To Mars program, incorporating braiding technology into the space program.
Both Junior and his father quickly learned the technology of materials, pulley tension and weights that greatly affect the quality of product. Their goal was to provide the highest quality of braided rugs and make them affordable to everyone.
In 2000, J Quilts Company offered their first braided rugs. Immediately, the rugs were a huge success. Stores were selling the rugs before the product could even be unwrapped! The demand for the braided rugs grew at an unprecedented rate.
By 2003, braided rugs accounted for 90% of J Quilts Company’s business. The quilts were only 10% and declining. Due to the high demand for the braided rugs, and his commitment to providing the best product and the best customer service, Junior decided to eliminate the quilt line and focus the company’s efforts on braided rugs.
In January 2006, Junior made the decision to change the company’s name from J Quilts Company to Homespice Décor in order to more accurately reflect the core products of the business. Today, Homespice Décor has become an industry leader in braided rugs (outdoor, indoor, wool, cotton), and has expanded line to include Penny Rugs and Rag Rugs. Although the product has changed, Junior's values, principles and commitment to providing the highest quality customer service in the industry has never changed.
Homespice Décor continues the tremendous growth and success experience as J Quilts. The commitment to service is reflected in being selected as a finalist for “Country Living” magazine’s 2006 Vendor of the Year.
Junior would personally like to thank Homespice customers (some of whom have been with the company since the first trade show). Throughout their growth, the company’s priority has been to treat each customer as the most important. Homespice will continue to keep this as their top priority.
Homespice Décor will continue offering unique, high quality products at the best possible price. As always, Homespice Décor stands behind all products with a 100% satisfaction guarantee. Homespice looks forward to introducing new and unique pattern designs (such as SuperNova) and new colors meeting the needs of their customers. Homespice is committed to being the best in product offering and the best in customer service.

I bought this rug to go in my living room. I live in a log house and I thought it would go well with my somewhat rustic decor. It matches very well and the colors are great. I have a cat and a dog and it hides pet hair well. On the negative side, it's very thin. I put a rocking chair on it, but if it's not going underneath some piece of furniture then a rug pad would be a must. Mine is on a hardwood floor and it slips a bit even with the chair on it. The other negative is that it pulls pretty easily. I've only had this rug for about a month and each of my animals have already damaged it a bit.

I bought three of these rugs. The ovals were sold out in one size, so I bought rectangular ones. I am having a bit of a problem with the corners curling up.
