NYICS Perfectly Blends Antiquity with Modernity Much like the nomadic tribes renown for their unique and highly collectable carpets, the New York International Carpet Show (NYICS) has moved from venue to venue over the course of its lifetime in search of the more perfect location. As the doors opened to buyers, designers, and collectors alike on Sunday, September 11, 2016 everyone was greeted by the most impressive and well-suited venue yet; one we hope could now be considered the 'home' for venerable show. Set at the Terminal Warehouse – a stunning wood and masonry structure - in New York's Chelsea neighborhood, the NYICS continued its evolution this year by including for the first time an Antiques Pavilion alongside the Main Hall of boutique modern and contemporary makers for which the show has been known. The juxtaposition was perfect and hints at the future of not only rug trade shows, but also the industry ingeneral. These are some of the highlights of the New York International Carpet Show, which ran September 11-13, 2016 in New York City.
