Nourison Features Designer Collection At High Point

Nourison showcased a Prismatic vignette designed by Francis Toumbakaris, at their showroom during High Point Market. The vignette featured two new designs added to the best-selling Prismatic area rug collection, PRS25 Multicolor and PRS26 Seafoam/Gold as well as a gallery wall of 2×3 rug samples displayed as framed art. PRS25 Multicolor recreates the look of a beautiful sunset in rich shades of red, golden yellow, orange, pink, purple and blue, and PRS26 Seafoam/Gold features multi-toned blues and splashes of yellow. The Prismatic collection is known for unique designs, vibrant color and hand-carved texture, made from a luxurious blend of fine New Zealand wool and silky Luxcelle™ fibers. “I always felt that these beautiful rugs look like paintings, so the inspiration came right away.

Francis Toumbakaris has a natural eye for design, successfully leveraging his background in dance and the arts, crafting Francis Interiors into one of New York City’s most versatile interior design firms with clients residing in high-end apartments, townhouses and condos.
