Rug Show@Javits Confirms Lineup For 2nd Annual Market
The second annual Rug Show @Javits kicks off fall rug buying season Sept. 22-25, 2013 at the Jacob K. Javits Convention Center in New York City with a knock-out lineup of confirmed, NEW and returning rug producers. This collective represents the most creative, cutting-edge arbiters of style in the field of fine handmade rugs anywhere in the world today.
Meticulous quality, trend-setting innovation and stunning surprises are guaranteed at the Javits Center in September, with carpet textures, colors and designs rivaling the autumnal hues beginning to landscape the East Coast. Visitors will find soulful new designs taking inspiration from the likes of impressionist and abstract paintings, world architecture and global fabric patterns, as these brilliant rug producers present arguably the most exceptional, skillful examples of flooring art in the world today. They can expect to see modernized takes on tried-and-true traditional patterns, newfangled fiber combinations, audacious use of color and the most tranquil interpretations of contemporary around. “We are thrilled to see The Rug Show@Javits grow this fall with so many new rug producers with like-minded visions on quality and style,” said Ramin Mobayen. “With this many pioneers in the industry under one roof, buyers really shouldn’t miss it.”
Confirmed returning favorites include acclaimed West Coast floor covering mavericks like Amadi, Ariana, Art Resources, Caravan, Mobayen and Nalbandian. Spirited new designs for fall 2013 from these firms alone are worth the trip. But there is more.
Also confirmed is an accomplished lineup of gifted new style-makers who will exhibit at The Rug Show@Javits for the first time this fall. JD Staron, for one, is a Stamford, CT-based design studio with a library of more than 5,000 rug patterns. The company’s signature collections have appeared in the most influential shelter magazines, showcasing with equal panache cutting-edge contemporary designs side by side with fine antique reproductions.
Wool and Silk Rugs, based in Montclair, NJ, is a relatively new darling in the industry, founded just three years ago. The firm has perfected art-inspired rugs with painterly precision and already has earned consecutive Carpet Design Awards at DOMOTEX in 2012 and 2013. If you don’t know Wool and Silk, you will soon.
Stay tuned for much more. The Rug Show@Javits will continue to reveal new and returning exhibitors, culminating in an inspired 2013 fall trade event, Sept. 22-25. During four fabulous days in the Big Apple, they aim to dazzle and tempt buyers with new collections to share with their customers.
