Though competitively priced, these carpets enthral with their astonishing colour combinations, their well-balanced designs – many inspired from ikat weavings – and their stunning production quality – a further testament to the production values Zollanvari are recognized for globally.

LAS VEGAS — Las Vegas Market announced today it is changing the dates for the Winter 2016 Market, which will now run from Sunday, January 24 to Thursday, January 28, 2016. Previously scheduled for January 17-21, 2016 to align for a second consecutive year with Design & Construction Week™, the shift to the last week of January allows for more space between other markets to accommodate buyers, manufacturers and designers across the US and internationally.
“Although the coordination in timing with Design & Construction Week™ for Winter 2015 brought increased attendance from the interior design community, we feel we must mitigate the overlap among January markets as much as possible by adjusting our dates to better serve the needs of our customers, who are our primary focus,” said Bob Maricich, Chief Executive Officer of International Market Centers. “After we announced our January 2016 dates last year, other markets in our industry shifted their dates, creating a conflict with our date pattern, which this change is designed to circumvent.”
SADDLE BROOK, NJ — Nourison has appointed Heather Jones as Account Executive for the Southeast region. Jones is responsible for managing and developing business for the South Florida territory, reporting to David Appelt, Regional Manager.
“We are truly pleased to add such a bright, talented individual to our Southeast team,” said Gerard O’Keefe, Nourison’s Vice President of Sales. “We are confident Heather will have great success in her new position.”
