Sphinx Adds New Sizes to Collection
Casual Living Staff -- Casual Living, June 6, 2005
Sphinx is adding rounds, squares, and over-sized rugs to its new introductions as well as some of its better-selling collections. With the additions, Sphinx now offers more than 250 rounds, 90 squares, and 300 mansion-sized area rugs.
“Trends in new home construction and open floor plans have made way for unique shapes and dramatic-size area rugs, and today's consumer is willing to think outside the traditional rectangle and add a bit of flair and creativity with an area rug,” said Mike Riley, executive vice president for Sphinx.
Two of Sphinx's most prominent collections, Ariana and Genre, will now offer 8-foot squares in all styles. Another recent introduction, the Solutions Collection, is being offered in an 8-foot round. Andy Warhol Home, introduced in January 2004, will now be available in a 6'7”-by-9'6”. The Warhol line was expanded in recent months with scatters, rounds, and squares.
Sphinx is also adding a 10-by-13 size to two recent introductions. The Tones Collection, featuring rich neutrals in geometrics and styles of urban simplicity, was introduced in January at the Atlanta Area Rug Market and is already being expanded with the larger size. In addition, Sphinx's newest licensed collection, Woolrich Home Summerstone Falls (introduced at the High Point Market in April) will be available in a 10-by-13.
Sphinx's existing product line includes a variety of shapes and sizes such as 5-foot, 6-foot, and 8-foot rounds, squares, ovals, octagons, and mansion-size 12-by-15 area rugs. The company plans to continue expanding its size options in the existing line as well as future introductions.
