DALLAS, TEXAS – Feizy, one of the country’s largest rug manufacturers, is moving to a new, ground-floor showroom at Las Vegas Market just in time for winter market, running January 22-26, 2017. The newly renovated and expanded showroom is in a prime location in the main lobby of Building C (C-180). The larger space will accommodate a greater presentation of Feizy’s growing line, including Feizy’s Fine Collection, Lifestyles Collection and decadent one-of-a-kind rugs. The new showroom features dedicated hospitality and lounge areas as well as valuable private space, including enclosed meeting and conference areas.
“Vegas market is very important to our business, and this beautiful new showroom allows our discerning customers immediate access to Feizy product as soon as they enter Building C,” said Cameron Feizy, principal. “Winter market is also an ideal time for us to welcome our valued designer clients, and the new enclosed rooms provide more privacy for face-to-face meetings with these important partners.”
“Feizy’s new showroom speaks to their commitment to providing the best environment to showcase their complete product assortment for buyers,” says Dorothy Belshaw, president of Gift & Home Décor for International Market Centers. “As we continue to provide a greater selection of design-driven home décor in thoughtful presentations on C1, C3-C5 and in The Pavilions, Feizy is a critical component to our evolution throughout the category. We look forward to a successful partnership well into the future as we work toward providing the ideal marketplace for buyers and sellers to come together to do business.”

SADDLE BROOK, NJ – Leading floor covering and home accents manufacturer Nourison hosted a Tea & Trends talk with Kathy Ireland and Barclay Butera at the Nourison Showroom during High Point Market on Saturday, October 24th. The discussion centered on consumer trends versus designer trends, moderated by Jenny Heinzen, Editor in Chief of Home Accents. Q&A attendees enjoyed tea and treats and photo ops with both Ms. Ireland and Butera. Butera talks to us about his style and how that influences the designs you do for all your licensed partners. “Coastal chic, All-American, timeless. I’m very much a believer in color and pattern. Layering pattern on pattern and color. Having the opportunity to own a company that’s a large design firm with showrooms also gives me that incubus to test market, to see what is actually selling to the end user in my environment, helps me figure out what is going to be sellable through my designs for Nourison or another license,” says Butera. As an interior designer, Butera talks about starting point of a room, which is from the ground up. “The basis to a room is the carpet, be it broadloom or area rugs. I always think let’s start with the grounding element to the room and then proceed the way up. Art also. Art is a personal taste piece, and the carpet is the grounding effect to creating a statement to the room.”
