In combining the best components of both businesses, Beatrice & Martin by STARK will bring the Philadelphia market an unparalleled resource for rugs and broadloom carpet.

STARK moved from its current showroom in the Biddle Building and into the existing Beatrice & Martin space within the Philadelphia Design Center at 1100 Ludlow Street, Suite 401, Philadelphia, PA 19107.

The combined showroom collections will offer a staggering amount of extraordinary and exclusive floor covering selections with unsurpassed service.”
