LOS ANGELES - The Rug Market America will debut a variety of collections that feature rug "bling" at the Atlanta and Las Vegas markets in January.
"Our design team has worked to present a depth of designs based upon inspiration found in a multitude of venues," said Mike Shabtai, owner of The Rug Market America, a manufacturer of multi-category interior and exterior designer rugs. "With the 2011 collections, our range encompasses innovative concepts as well as a variety of design styles and price points. There is something for everyone."
The Expressions Collection is among the newest introductions. Images from the streets and scenes of retro London to the cafes and towers of historic Paris have been captured in this collection of synthetic fiber rugs that are suited for homeowners or contract applications. These rugs are from the Ecconox line that offers designer looks at an attractive price point.
Textural enhancements will highlight several new introductions from The Rug Market America for 2011. In the Sonoma Collection, a line of interior rugs is made of durable, high quality sisal with canvas borders accented by decorative nail heads.
"The designers were looking to create a ‘wow' factor with this never-before-seen embellishment," said Shabtai. "The neutral colorations of this group are offset by unique hardware elements."
The entire selection of introductions from The Rug Market America design team will be on display in Atlanta at Suite 12-C-1, Americasmart and in Las Vegas at Suite
B-306, World Market Center. The Americasmart appearance will be the first for Shabtai's company after a five-year absence.
"We felt that not only the primary focus of this market and our new showroom location was a fit for the fashion-forward designs we are introducing," Shabtai said. The company, which has previously exhibited on the rug floor, will now join the lifestyle-oriented home decor area of Americasmart. For 2011, The Rug Market America also will exhibit at shows in Los Angeles, Dallas, Chicago and High Point.
