Nourison Hospitality Unveils New Display

Nourison Hospitality launched a newly designed booth during BDNY, November 13-14th at the Javits Center. The rugs displayed represented 10 different product types in complementary colorways. The designs were inspired by the actual process of using Design Now, Nourison Hospitality’s online design application, pulling designs from the archives and transforming it into something new by mixing different color palettes while being homogenous. “The anchor for the booth concept started with a photo I took of a rusty steel paneled door in Manhattan, which had shades that spoke of sustainability and raw materials, reflecting one of the strongest trends. Adding a range of color accents including black, white and gold pull together the different styles of designs and constructions created by our talented design team.” says Dipesh Haria, Creative Director of Hospitality. “The immediate buzz during the first morning at BDNY indicated that this was going to be an even better show than predicted. Not just because we were launching our new custom designed booth, but also because the lines of show attendees wrapped around the entire lobby. Everyone’s excitement to see each other again was felt throughout the Javits Center. The show was back!” The hand carved Axminster and Abrash techniques, hand tufted rug and the launch of Nourmak and Nourmak Plus patented qualities generated a lot of interest at BDNY. Nourison Hospitality also co-hosted an exciting party with Majestic Mirror & Frame, GreenBridge Furnishings, Neil Allen Industries and Samuelson Furniture at Nebula on November 13th in NYC with over 750+...

Fresh New Designs On Tap From Capel At High Point

Capel Rugs is expanding its assortment of promotionally priced machine-made rugs as well as more upscale hand-tufted models with a variety of dynamic new transitional and traditional designs at the October 22 to 26 High Point Market in its showroom located at Market Square, Space 112. Leading off the slate of introductions is Azari, a nine-rug collection that is hand-tufted in India of 100% wool. Inspired by vintage Persian designs, the traditional collection includes two patterns — Isfahan and Keshan — in a range of rich colors and fresh accents. Colorways include celedon, gray, dark sapphire, copper, evergeen, pewter, ink, oxford tan and terra cotta. “Azari embraces the rich traditions of the past and carries them forward to fit with today’s more relaxed lifestyles and living spaces,” said Cameron Capel, President – Sales and Marketing for Capel Rugs. “The collection is a perfect synthesis of classic Persian styles, from all corners of this storied ancient empire, with the quality construction our customers have come to expect from Capel Rugs.” At this market, retailers will be on the lookout for creative new rug designs and merchandising ideas, said Capel. “Retailers are eager to freshen up their stores, and there’s no better way to do it than with eye-catching, fashion-forward rugs. To help them out, we’re bringing out a carefully curated assortment of new patterns and colors packed with the value and fashion that retailers and designers need to generate excitement with their customers.” Also on tap for High Point is Zenith, a timely collection featuring a plush high-low texture and a lively blending of natural colors. The raised patterning of the design adds flair as well as a feeling of movement and fluidity. The Zenith collection is machine made in Turkey on Wilton looms using a mix of 90% polyester and 10% olefin yarns. “These beautiful area rugs will impart a luminous feeling wherever they are placed,” said Capel. Another machine-made collection debuting in High Point is Bosphorus. Made in the U.S.A. on Wilton power looms, these rugs use space dyed polyester to create deep and rich tones with a soft hand. The Bosphorus collection includes three patterns and nine colorways: Bahktiar in navy, chocolate and terra cotta; Heriz in ivory, natural and rust; Ispahan in aqua; and Keshan in blue and stone. “These rugs are as durable as they are soft to the touch,” said Capel. “The collection features an intriguing mix of traditional rug designs such as Heriz, Ispahan, Keshan and Bahktiar inspired by the Bosphorus Strait area of northwestern Turkey. That’s where classic rugs such as these first made their way through the city of Istanbul, the crossroads of trade...

Confidence, Commerce and Connections at Summer 2022 Atlanta Market

Confident retailers and designers anticipating a strong fourth quarter gathered at Summer Atlanta Market, July 12-18, 2022 to source trendsetting product, exchange ideas and connect with leading brands and company principals. “Business was definitely robust this week at Atlanta Market, as buyers and sellers reconnected – some for the first time since Winter 2020 – at the United States’ largest gift and home decor collection,” noted International Market Centers (IMC) CEO Bob Maricich. “The nation’s buying power came to Atlanta to focus on sourcing must-have product in preparation for the fourth quarter.”   Buyers Get Back to In-Person Sourcing at Atlanta Market For many, the need to nurture vendor relationships and the unmatched concentration of leading gift and home brands drove buyers to Atlanta Market. “Atlanta Market has a big impact on our business — it’s the best market in the country,” said retailer Howard Henschel, CEO and President of Norman’s Hallmark who attended market with a delegation of six buyers sourcing for 68 locations in four states. “We missed it during COVID and in January because of travel problems. We came this summer to see new trends, to negotiate and to speak to the principals of our various vendors – all very important for our business.” Programming including the new GCX: Expo & Education, a joint presentation from GC Buying Group and IMC, also brought buyers out of their stores and back to Atlanta Market for networking, education and informed product discovery. “It was so good to reconnect with vendors and fellow retailers after two-and-a-half years,” said Bob Kratchman, president of Kitchen Kapers with four locations in Pennsylvania. “Special thanks to Janis Johnson and IMC for creating the GCX event. It confirmed for me the necessity of meeting in person.” Buyers used social media to share experiences and encourage others to make the trip to Atlanta Market. Designer Rhonda E. Peterson of Atlanta posted, “If you’re a member of the trade and have not been to AmericasMart (lately), I think it’s time you did. They have made some wonderful changes and updates to make your market experience even more pleasurable and productive.” In total, Atlanta Market attracted attendees from all 50 states, three US territories and 48countries. Some 9% were new to Atlanta Market and 14% returned after a pandemic hiatus. The geographic breakdown of Atlanta Market buyers has returned to more a traditional pattern with international attendance rebounded to pre-pandemic levels and notable growth in attendees from the Midwest, Northeast and Southwest. Connections Drive Commerce Making connections with new buyers and reconnecting with existing customers was top of mind for brands and sales agencies at Atlanta Market. “I certainly met a lot of new people at Atlanta Market...
