Staff Staff -- Casual Living, August 15, 2012
DALTON, Ga. - Oriental Weavers will celebrate the opening of their new showroom during the upcoming New York Home Fashions Market that will be held Sept. 10-13.
The new showroom is almost double the size of their current space with more than 10,000 square feet, and will now dedicate space to Oriental Weavers USA, Sphinx by Oriental Weavers, as well as the OW Hospitality division. The showroom is located on the seventh floor of the 295 5th Avenue Textile Building in suite 719.
In the new larger space, Oriental Weavers' divisions will showcase their machine-woven, printed and handcrafted accent and area rugs, broadloom, Axminster, rug pad and other product segments.
The showroom has been referred to as "the new face of 295," due to amenities and design features never before available to tenants of 295. The new space is meant to be much more than simply a location to showcase product. The OW team has worked hard to create a very inviting and comfortable environment with spaces for customers to work, hold buying team meetings, and relax in between other appointments.
"With the breadth of our current area rug assortment, and tremendous growth in other segments of our business, such as OW Hospitality, the new expanded showroom was essential for us to showcase our existing product line and new market introductions," said Michael Riley, president of Oriental Weavers USA, Inc. "The New York Home Fashions Market is the premier market for the largest retailers in North America and New York City is also a key hub for the global A & D community and plays a pivotal role for OWH by having a hospitality presence there. We are excited about our new expanded showroom, and our commitment to the global marketplace."
