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!” To help sweeten your Market Week, register today at www.metromarketweek.com and you will be entered in a drawing to win a free iPad 3, courtesy of RUG INSIDER magazine and RugInsider.com.

OW To Celebrate New NYC Showroom Opening

ORIENTAL WEAVERS TO CELEBRATE NEW SHOWROOM OPENING AT 295 5th AVENUE Dalton, GA (August 13, 2012) – Oriental Weavers will celebrate the opening of their new showroom at 295 Fifth Ave., Manhattan, during the upcoming New York Home Fashions Market that will be held September 10th – 13th, 2012. The new showroom is almost double the size of their current space with more than 10,000 square feet, and will now dedicate space to Oriental Weavers USA, Sphinx by Oriental Weavers, as well as the OW Hospitality division. The showroom is located on the seventh floor of the 295 5th Avenue Textile Building suite # 719. In the new larger space, Oriental Weavers’ divisions will showcase their machine-woven, printed, and hand crafted accent and area rugs, broadloom, Axminster, rug pad and all other product segments for the company. The showroom has been referred to as “the new face of 295,” due to amenities and design features that have never been available to tenants of 295 in the past. The new space is meant to be much more than simply a location to showcase product. The OW team has worked hard to create a very inviting and comfortable environment with spaces for customers to work, hold buying team meetings, and most importantly relax in between other appointments. “With the breadth of our current area rug assortment, and tremendous growth in other segments of our business, such as OW Hospitality, the new expanded showroom was essential for us to showcase our existing product line and new market introductions,” said Michael Riley President of Oriental Weavers USA, Inc.  “The New York Home Fashions Market is the premier market for the largest retailers in North America and New York City is also a key hub for the global A & D community and plays a pivotal role for OWH by having a hospitality presence there. We are excited about our new expanded showroom, and our commitment to the Global Marketplace.” Oriental Weavers is a member of the...
