​Beautiful homewares and floor coverings....


Known for Persian carpets and Turkish rugs as well as quality exotic homewares from around the world, meet Salyed Balkhi from Dandy Rugs and Furniture.

Moving to Australia five years ago from Afghanistan to live a better life with his family, Salyed sourced work in the community of Dandenong.

Salyed loved visiting Dandenong Market when he worked at Dandenong Plaza Target. A regular vistitor to the market, making friends with the multicultural community and befriending many of the traders, one of which was the owner of Dandy Rugs and Furniture, Salyed became very interested in the business, selling beautiful rugs and exotic goods. When an opportunity arose to buy the Dandy Rugs and Furniture shop from his friend, Salyed knew it would lead to great success.

Boasting a loyal and strong customer base, Salyed prides his Dandy Rugs and Furniture success on good customer service skills. Salyed enjoys meeting people, especially the diverse multicultural mix of the market, Salyed speaks many languages and this is a great advantage being able to speak to many customers in their native tongue. Salyed likes making his customers happy and he provides a lovely, comfortable experience for them when they visit his shop.
