We had a blast this High Point Market showing off our latest rug collections and showcased a number of special guests. Our showroom – Market Square, Space 112 – was packed every day with style spotters, buyers and designers who were all eager to see our latest fashion-forward designs.
Braided rugs aren’t new for us – we’ve been making them since 1917 – but our Pizzazz rug is anything but dated. This bold design features today’s hottest jewel tones in our world-famous wool tape braid; it’s sure to be the center of attention in any room. Layers of high-fashion color paralleled with a micro braid create a stunning high-low effect. These made in the USA rugs are reversible for double the wear between cleanings. Pizzazz is available in amethyst, deep emerald and sapphire.
Visitors to the showroom on Sunday and Monday met the designers behind some of our latest collections, receive decorating advice and got a behind-the-scenes look at a live photo shoot featuring our licensees. COCOCOZY, Genevieve Gorder, Kevin O’Brien and Susan and Kate Hable from Hable Construction basked in the glow of the bright lights and had a great time playing it up for the camera.
COCOCOZY debuted several new rug designs that are sure to be among the most sought-after by trendy homeowners in late 2014. O’Brien adopted new colorways to the Ramblas, Riviera and Tuscan Sun designs – all of which received rave reviews during winter markets. Hable Construction showed off their hand knot collection, including customer favorite Aspen in spice red.
Gorder expanded beyond the flat woven category and introduced her first braid – The Player – and hand tufted – Ancient Arrow – rugs. The Player features a simple design that layers well with a variety of other rugs, while Ancient Arrow contains a repeating pattern of imperfect, hand-drawn lines striped for a contemporary look made to last. The HGTV star also showed off new designs that are perfect for the great outdoors with Finesse Mandala and Finesse Moor.
To top it all off, Gorder also added Dokka Stripe to her line of flat-woven dhurries. The striped rugs catch the eye with one bank of color pop in the center. Geometric, tribal and familiar, Dokka Stripe was inspired by Gorder’s roots and is named for the hometown of her great grandfather.
All this excitement has us already counting down the days until the fall High Point Market on October 18. Don’t miss out on the fun and book your trip now!
