Moment Teams With Christiane Lemieux For New Line

Award-winning designer and innovator Christiane Lemieux and leading floor covering manufacturer, Momeni, Inc., announced the debut of their partnership. The line will be presented at Fall Market in High Point, North Carolina, October 19-23. Lemieux et Cie, the namesake design house created by Lemieux, is bringing her astute style to area rugs. The opening line features Lemieux’s distinctive aesthetic – drawn largely upon influences from her design education and travels – including Coptic textiles, Moroccan Tuareg mats and Berber rugs, and the Nui shibori (a stitched shibori technique). Lemieux commented, “We are so excited to partner with the incredible team at Momeni to bring my namesake brand to rugs in the US. Their ability to translate our archive of design and to help execute on a decade of design was unparalleled. With their long and rich history in the rug world and their commitment to craft and quality, the talented and dedicated Momeni team brought our vision to life with a truly beautiful and very personal collection.” Nine distinct qualities and collections make up the line ranging in price point from $399 to $2399 for an 8×10. Each piece is handmade from natural materials such as leather and jute in the Tugart collection and undyed wool in the Rafalla collection. Momeni Design Director Katy Repetto shared, “The entire line is an exposure to many cultures and techniques connected by a common thread. The dusty palette and indigenous-inspired qualities restore and honor the human hand.” As the fourth licensed line to be launched by Momeni, the Lemieux et Cie collection “… design is a result of countless experimental techniques with the goal of conceptualizing a way to curate the globally-sourced craftsmanship, in an authentic and cohesive line. The result is a line with mood that evokes authenticity through craftsmanship and part of the value is not only a beautiful rug, but a sense of historical reference and technique,” stated Reza Momeni, president of Momeni. Created specifically to be sold through brick and mortar retailers, the inaugural line will be made available to consumers in the first quarter of 2020 through individual retailers and furniture stores. Momeni will host a panel and launch party, featuring Lemieux, Sunday, October 20thfrom 3-5 p.m. at the Momeni showroom located in IHFC H-345. Further details to follow.

Momeni Celebrates 40th Anniversary

Momeni Inc., the leading source for area rugs and designer broadloom, is commemorating 40 years of business in 2015. The company was formed and founded by Haji Momeni in 1975 on the simple ideal of bringing beautiful products to people’s homes with exceptional service and quality. 40 years later, they are still a family owned and operated business maintaining a reputation for unwavering quality, trendsetting design and outstanding customer service. Momeni Rugs began as a designer-oriented company, importing Persian and Oriental rugs for luxury showrooms all over the country. As faster weaving practices and technologies spread across the globe, Momeni entered a new era of programmed products available for wider distribution. As Haji’s sons grew into the roles of company executives, Momeni thrived and grew into an industry leader by staying true to its core values: quality, value and service. Momeni is known for many of their popular programed collections over the years such as Sahara, Windsor and the iconic New Wave collection. More recently, Momeni has introduced genre-shattering collections like the Lil’ Mo line of juvenile products and a line of wall to wall broadloom carpet. The expertise of the Momeni family in design, technology and fashion contributes to their continued success in product introductions. It is the commitment to service, however, that has sustained relationships with their retail partners, some going back decades. As the company grew, Momeni invested in the purchase and development of a 150,000 square foot modern warehouse in Atlanta, near the heart of the flooring industry. In 2007 Momeni relocated from their longtime home in New York City to a new, state of the art facility in Carlstadt, NJ. With this change, the company was able to broaden its offerings to include accessories and furniture along with their signature flooring products. Sadly, in 2014, Haji Momeni passed away and the company lost its founder and patriarch. Momeni today is very different from the company Haji Momeni started in a small showroom in New York nearly a lifetime ago but many aspects still hold true. Momeni has thrived in both calm seas and rough waters by staying committed to the customer relationships and quality of product that is at the heart of the company. Brothers Reza, Aria and Ali Momeni maintain the high standards of Momeni’s quality and service that are Haji’s lasting legacy. At Momeni, there will always be a Tradition of Quality and Service. Momeni is a member of the...
