SADDLE BROOK, NJ – Leading floor covering and home accents manufacturer Nourison has expanded its Calhoun, GA operation, now running a full 7 days per week. Nourison has staffed for additional shifts to cover the expanded hours and arranged with major carriers UPS and FedEx to also pick up on the weekends. This allows Nourison to process and ship orders faster to meet their customers’ needs.
“Today’s savvy consumer expects same day shipments and instant gratification. To keep up with our customers’ needs, we knew we needed to ramp up our operation and be able to ship products from our extensive in-stock inventory in less than 24 hours,” said Andrew Peykar, COO of Nourison.

Erbil Tezcan of Wool and Silk
I first met Erbil Tezcan of Wool and Silk in the autumn of 2010 at the New York International Carpet Show (NYICS) and then, just as now, his carpets captivate the viewer through their adept use of colour, visual and tactile texture, and ever evolving designs. Since then I count Erbil amongst the friendliest, most outgoing and positive people I have ever encountered. I caught up with him shortly after a brief meeting at ICFF to discuss his history in rugs, his business ethos, and how he came to be the latest North American member of Label STEP.
Michael Christie (MC): Nice to chat with you again Erbil. I think I’ve known you now for what, four or five years? Ever since that first year at NYICS when you had that small and poorly situated stand.
Erbil Tezcan (ET): Six. Six years. It was in the fall of 2010. Yes, the stand was so small it barely held the carpets we were showing but we were a young company then.

CARTERSVILLE, GA — Surya will debut at Atlanta and Las Vegas a selection of new machine-made rug collections with a handcrafted look.

Collections to be showcased at market include:
Andromeda – Machine made in India of New Zealand wool and featuring traditional motifs and modern abstract patterns, Andromeda mimics the luxurious drape of a hand-knotted rug.

NEW YORK, NY — Lee Harounian, president of NY-based Harounian Rugs Intl., has announced that HRI is moving to a larger showroom in Building B at World Market Center, just in time for the summer Las Vegas Market, July 31-Aug. 4, 2016.
“When presented with the opportunity to move our showroom to a larger one on the same floor, our interest was piqued,” Harounian said. “When we saw that the new space has three sides of glass forming the perimeter, we didn’t hesitate to make the move.”
That’s because when you are vying for added visibility at a bustling trade show, exterior showroom windows are a premium. It’s a merchandising coup that HRI’s executive vice president of sales, Greg Jordt, knows all too well.
North Carolina-based Capel Rugs has a new permanent showroom at World Market Center in Las Vegas. The new Building A space is on the first floor (Suite A-133) of the Las Vegas Design Center, a year-round resource for the regional interior design community and a national market venue during the Las Vegas Market, July 31-Aug. 4.
With its vintage-loft feel, the new showroom will have a fresh layout that features vignettes throughout, spotlighting furniture from resources like Four Hands and Uttermost. Stop in daily in the new hospitality area for fresh-brewed Starbucks® coffee.
