Meet The Team
Kamran grew up in Sacramento, attended Rio Americano High School, American River College, and Sacramento State University, to pursue a degree in Civil Engineering. His experience in retail began during his high school years working at Scofield's fine furnishings.' He opened his first store on Arden way, "Kamran's Antiques and Oriental Rugs" in 1991 then moved to East Sacramento, inside the Elvas Center in 1992, doing business as Oriental Rug Bazaar. He is a fourth-generation rug merchant and in the early '90s became one of the youngest oriental rug appraisers in the country.
Soon after, he expanded his business operations to Lodi and then Napa. His business practices earned a #1 ranking for a furniture showroom in San Joaquin County by voters.
During this time he began traveling overseas, to consult and help design furniture and oriental rugs with manufacturers and oriental rug producers. He started importing goods right up until the financial crash in 2008. He continued his consulting role, focusing on dental practices until 2015 when he decided to embrace his passion for interior design and fine furnishings by creating Urban 57 Home Décor & Design with great success in 2015.
