Jaipur Living Pulls Out Of Fall High Point Market

Jaipur Living announced that they have decided, out of an abundance of caution, not to exhibit at Fall Market, scheduled October 13-21, in High Point, North Carolina. The award-winning rug producer will continue to focus on its monthly rug, pillow, pouf and throw launches, which have been a huge hit since their inception in June. The summer and fall launches can be shopped on the Jaipur Living website, its digital catalogs, or in-person at The Gallery at Jaipur Living, located in the company’s headquarters just north of Atlanta. “Our customers are loving our monthly new product launches and digital catalogs,” said Jaipur Living President and CEO Asha Chaudhary.  “We are increasing our focus there to be the best partner we can and to help our customers create beautiful lives for their customers. Our fall rugs are amazing—from stunning handknots that are revolutionary in the way they’re designed and made, to inspiring power-loomed rugs with high-definition details–we can’t wait for our customers to see them.” Those who wish to visit The Gallery at Jaipur Living can do so knowing every safety precaution recommended by the CDC is in place. Customers can email rsvp@jaipurliving.com to request an appointment. They can also book a video or phone appointment with their sales representative to learn more about Jaipur Living’s new...
