The Saphir Callo and Saphir Obzeet Collections are the latest additions to the Feizy Home Collection. The Saphir Callo Collection is a grouping of power-loomed designs woven in a trend-right palette of grays and black, accented by various shades of blue and ecru. Each dynamic high-low design creates textural interest and becomes a riveting foundation for transitional and contemporary spaces alike. The Saphir Obzeet Collection brings together an of-the-moment palette of spice colors punctuated by cool grays and blues. Fresh, geometric-inspired designs are power-loomed in a high-low construction of plush viscose with a poly chenille background. Also featured at HighPoint: The Vivendi Collection, from the Tracy Porter by Feizy Rugs line, a stunning grouping of fine rugs that is incredibly dynamic and dramatic.  The vivid jewel tones and nature-inspired patterns are so unique, they could only be Tracy Porter.  Each Indo Nepalese hand knotted, antique finished rug features intricate design detailing– as delicate as lace– and gradations in color that create “erased” looks. These pieces fit beautifully into traditional, transitional and contemporary settings alike. There are two new additions to The Bandu Collection, one of Feizy’s best-selling and most elegant Fine Rug Collections.  Traditional designs are finely hand knotted in pure, hand-spun New Zealand wool to showcase great detail in these dazzling new colorways and patterns.  A fresh color palette and antique patina bring light and luxury to any setting. The low pile allows the amazingly intricate designs to shine. Feizy’s Home Collection is also expanding, with three new collections and multiple additions to the popular Indochine Collection of art silk shags. The Marlowe Collection will dazzle with an array of sophisticated brights and subdued neutrals.  These loom knotted art silk pieces are so incredibly plush, they beg for bare feet.  Available in solids with tonal colorways coming soon, these rugs work effortlessly into a variety of decors. Inspired transitional and updated traditional designs take on new dimensions in the Rivington Collection of power loomed rugs.  The distinctive artistry of this grouping showcases a dynamic interplay of color and texture. Each design is enhanced by a rich tapestry of detail and on-trend colors to bring light and warmth to any setting. A cool palette and unforgettable transitional and traditional designs are the hallmarks of the Starnes Collection. ...

Nourison To Open High Point InterHall Showroom

SADDLE BROOK, NJ (August 10, 2011)… Nourison is proud to announce their return to High Point in October 2011 with a new permanent showroom at the prime InterHall location on the first level of the IHFC building. The showroom will open in the last week of September to coincide with Pre-Market at High Point. The new InterHall showroom is intended to specifically target regional home furnishings retailers that come to the High Point market. “The model of Nourison having the largest backup inventory of area rugs in the country and being able to ship out orders quickly is probably the best possible fit for home furnishings retailers. These stores only have a limited allocation of space and sales per square feet become very important,” said Alex Peykar, principal at Nourison. “We are also pleased to say that our showroom location at IH 101 is the most coveted location at InterHall… and InterHall is the most coveted location at the High Point Market,” he added. The showroom will feature Nourison’s full range of products and focus specifically on lines that are most suited for the home furnishings market including contemporary, mid-priced, area and scatter rugs, broadloom and home accessories such as pillows and poufs. Recognizable brand names from Nourison such as Calvin Klein Home will also generate additional interest from home furnishings retailers at High Point. Nourison also has permanent showrooms in New York, Atlanta, Las Vegas and Zurich, as well as at the company’s world headquarters in Saddle Brook, New Jersey.
