A new Hooker Furnishings (consumer and contract furniture brands) showroom debuts on the ground-level, alongside the newly relocated showroom of Loloi(area rugs and textiles) and the existing showroom of Currey & Company (lighting, accent furniture and accessories). This major reimagining of the arrival experience for AmericasMart visitors was a significant element of the multi-year transformation project that also included a new registration area on Floor 2. All three of these Lobby-level showrooms will be open for Atlanta Market as well as weekdays as part of AmericasMart’s Open Year Round offerings. “Our permanent, year-round space within the prestigious AmericasMart allows us to showcase a variety of Hooker Furnishings portfolio brands, to connect with new and existing retailers, and to contribute to our growth within the essential interior design channel,” said Johne Albanese, Hooker Furnishings chief marketing officer. “Additionally, the company’s outdoor brand, Sunset West, will have its own temporary space on Floor 12 in Building 1 for Casual Market Atlanta.” Overall, the Summer 2023 Market features a total of 25,000 square feet of showroom updates in the home décor category. In addition to the two Building 1 Lobby changes, updates include three new showroom debuts: Artifacts Trading Company (hand-woven home décor and accessories), Home Treasures (luxury Italian bedding, bath and table linens) and The Ivy Guild (custom silk floral, floor plants, trees and home accents). Four expanding showrooms are Cloud Nine Design (home accessories), D.V. KAP Home(accent pillows), Frank Thomas Gallery (wall art) and LR Home (home décor). As an added benefit for Atlanta Market participants, co-location with the inaugural Casual Market Atlanta brings 150+ casual furnishings and outdoor furniture resources to AmericasMart Atlanta this summer. To help Atlanta Market retailers and designers navigate the new cross-category offerings, a Buyer Tour: Casual/Outdoor Furnishings will be held on Monday, July 10, at 10 a.m., and Tuesday, July 11, at 10 a.m. Casual Market Atlanta runs July 10-13, in Building 1, with permanent showrooms on Floors 2-5 and temporary exhibits on Floors 6 and 7.

A sophisticated new wool rug collection featuring gorgeous colorations and lush textures and a new versatile braid will be in the spotlight in Capel Rugs’ showroom, in Market Square space 112, at the April 22 to 26 High Point Market. “We are keen to keep our newness coming and are supporting our retailers with great looks, designs, prices and quality,” said Cameron Capel, president – sales and marketing for Capel Rugs about the company’s strategy for market. To help retailers spark business during the summer months, Capel Rugs will offer up to 25% off on its popular line of indoor/outdoor/easy care performance rugs. And to create excitement at market, it is decorating its showroom with an assortment of fun neon signs and a photo booth, where retailers and designers can take selfies for sharing with colleagues, friends and family. The new collection on tap for Capel Rugs is Aria. Hand woven in India, Aria makes a stylish transitional statement with its beautifully designed geometric yet organic bohemian-influenced patterns. The collection features natural undyed wool that is hand carded, with a lush, high-low profile. Four colors are available, including black/white, ivory, natural and beige, in four sizes – 3’ x 5’, 5’ x 8’, 8’ x 10’ and 9’ x 12’. A 5’ by 8’ size may retail for $699. “You can feel the breath of fresh air in this collection that’s created by the cloudlike quality of the wool,” Cameron Capel said. “The tonal values and amazing textures of this high-low pile also blend perfectly with the boho style. It’s a very attractive, eco-friendly rug design.” In addition to these new hand woven designs, Capel Rugs plans to add a new indoor/outdoor braided rug collection in coastal styling this market called Down East. Made in the USA of 100% texturized polypropylene, this design is constructed with two braid types to create a high-low pile and texture.

Down East comes in four colors – sand dollar, marsh grass, cape shoals and oyster rock. “The colors are reminiscent of the coastal area around the North Carolina Outer Banks,” Capel adds. “And the synthetic yarns provide strength and durability, making this a wonderfully textural reversible rug.” At market, Capel Rugs is also debuting two new machine-made collections –Captiva and Retreat — that can be used in outdoor environments. Both are woven on Wilton looms using weather-durable 100% olefin yarns. Two sizes are available in each collection – 5’3” x 7’6” and 7’10” x 10’10”, and a 5’3 x 7’6” model may retail for $199.

Award-winning fine rug manufacturer, Feizy Rugs, is proud to announce it will debut an array of stunning new collections and additional styles to its existing collections at High Point Market next month. The company will be showcasing six striking new styles to The Thom Filicia for Feizy collection, as well as four brand new fine, handmade collections – Rowen, Navaro, Wembley, Killian, and additions to three machine made collections – Aura, Kano and Micah. The company will also show intros from January’s Las Vegas Market in conjunction with these brand-new pieces. Thom Filicia for Feizy (6 new pieces): Experience six new styles from The Thom Filicia for Feizy. These striking pieces feature stunning hand-selected colors, designs, and textures for the sophisticated lifestyle. NEW PIECES FROM THOM FILICIA: PECONIC, TRUXEL, DERING, BLUFF, LYTTON AND GANSETT DEBUT COLLECTIONS:  KILLIAN (6 new pieces): Fiber: 100% Wool Construction: Hand-Knotted Made from hand spun wool using a Turkish style knot, the yarn is all vegetable dyed naturally on a slow fire and in small quantities, giving each rug a unique character. No 2 rugs are identical, making each one a true one-of-a-kind heirloom piece. NAVARO (5 new pieces): Fiber: Wool & Viscose Construction: Hand-Woven This product is crafted using handspun yarn with a lot of variations. It is a blend of NZ wool with Greek & Saudi wool, giving Navaro a unique character of softness and sheen. We saw an opportunity in this yarn with varied thicknesses and thought to produce a product where it can highlight the beauty of this variation. Combination of finer count and thicker count defines the pattern in its own way and produces a heavy and sturdy rug. ROWEN (3 new pieces): Fiber: 100% Wool Construction: Hand-Knotted These rugs are made from hand carded yarn, meaning it does not go through any machine in the spinning of the yarn stage. The yarn is then dyed in pots and small batches to get the abrash and the unique look. The rugs are put through a proprietary wash, then finished using only scissors and blades to give them the beautiful uneven texture. Only hand processes are used in the manufacturing of this collection. WEMBLEY (4 new pieces): Fiber: 100% Wool Construction: Hand-Knotted Like Rowen, these rugs are made from hand carded yarn, meaning it does not go through any machine in the spinning of the yarn stage. The yarn is then dyed in pots and small batches to get the abrash and the unique look. The rugs are put through a proprietary wash, then finished using only scissors and blades to give them the beautiful uneven texture. Only hand processes are used in the manufacturing of this collection. ADDITIONS TO EXISTING COLLECTIONS: AURA (3 new pieces): Construction: Machine Woven Content: Polypropylene & Polyester The Aura Collection uses ultra-soft polyester and polypropylene to create a canvas of gold and champagne creating an atmosphere of sophistication. KANO (5 new pieces): Construction: Machine Woven Content: Polypropylene & Polyester The Kano Collection invokes a nostalgic and inviting coziness, as inky blacks and sophisticated grays are accented with indulgent ivory and warm beige.
