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 blend of 90% polyester and 10% olefin yarns. “These beautiful area rugs will impart a luminous feeling wherever they are placed,” said Capel. At market, Capel Rugs also is adding five new patterns in seven robustly blended colorways to its popular Avanti collection of hand-tufted, all-wool designs. The new patterns are Charlotte, in a cloud colorway; Fiesta, in gray multi; Mahal, in teal and silver; Serapi, in misty blue and ink; and Kazak, in ocean.

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.

Confidence, Commerce and Connections at Summer 2022 Atlanta Market

Posted on 12:21 pm | 0 comments

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 that I didn’t have exposure to before and probably wouldn’t have found on the road,” said Daniel Ratchford, national sales representative for décor brand Chelsea House. “Business is strong. This was my best Atlanta Market ever and a nice ‘summer bump’ for Chelsea House.” Jordan Godwin, director of marketing and graphic design for Chelsea House’s sister brand Wildwood, echoed that sentiment, noting that about half of the brand’s buyers were new accounts while the rest were existing buyers excited to be back at market. “After COVID, buyers are getting back into the swing of things. It felt like old times with people socializing, hanging out and talking. There has been...
