Latest Rug Fashions To Debut at Metro Market Week

Rug buyers seeking the latest floor fashions will be in good company Sept. 10-13 during Metro Market Week in New York and New Jersey. Fall Fashion Week for Area Rugs overlaps with the spring 2013 runway shows in New York. That means great energy and a whole lot of beautiful.

Hot looks to hunt for in September will embrace both formal and casual styles that help consumers update their homes throughout 2013. That includes everything from edgy and hip chevron stripes and fabulous, funky plaids to barely there neutrals that instantly update classic Serapis and Khotans and everything in between. We are still tracking Ikats; now more muted and neutral colorations look fresh and up-to-date. Sari Silks and new, artist-inspired watercolor and other painterly looks also are on the fashion radar.

“Judging by the wealth of introductions during summer shows, there will be no shortage of innovation at Metro Market Week 9,” said Peter Woodaman, executive director of Metro Market Week. “Since the clothing industry’s major spring shows overlap with Metro Market Week this year, make your reservations early and be prepared for fun!”
