Bermuda and EmersonDesigns shown are from Bermuda and Emerson Collections

DALLAS, TX – Feizy will unveil a broad array of new collections and exciting promotions at High Point Spring Market April 22 through 26, 2017.

“We’ve worked hard to make the Feizy showroom a destination for designers at High Point, and this spring is no exception,” said Cameron Feizy, Principal. “The collections we’re introducing this market are project-inspired, developed to give our designer partners an array of designs that deliver textural interest and on-trend patterns.”

Feizy is adding to its deep inventory of museum-quality, fine rugs with new hand-knotted collections and other quality constructions with the addition of the following collections.

Bermuda
The eco-friendly designs of the Feizy Bermuda Collection are the perfect complement to enhance your organic style. A hand-woven patchwork of 100% jute pile, Bermuda adds exquisite texture and dimension to any indoor space. With a slight sheen, the thoughtful geometric patterns on each rug are tastefully expressed using versatile grey and beige palettes mixed with rich tones of blue, red and brown.

Emerson
From traditional, floral-inspired designs to contemporary, modern patterns, the Feizy Emerson collection fascinates with compelling beauty and intrigue. Developed with a unique creel featuring 16 colors, Emerson designs seduce with rich earth tones and saturated accent colors. Masterfully power-loomed, these sumptuous designs are not only crafted for style, but with durability for high traffic and resistance to stains and water.

On the Move: Harounian Rugs International

NEW YORK, NY — Harounian Rugs International, HRI, has been busy the past few months as it relocated not one, but two showrooms to better position the firm for continued growth. The first last winter saw the venerable firm move its Manhattan Showroom to 104 West 29th Street, New York; while the second, a move of its High Point Showroom to a larger space, will be complete in time for this month’s High Point Market, April 22-26, 2017.

In an era when rising rents have forced many rug dealers to leave Manhattan, HRI has chosen to remain in the city in order to preserve "long-held relationships with major NY Design Firms and key players in the Textile District," according to their press release. Further, the new larger facility will give HRI much needed space to better service their years long double digit growth and affords them the ability to craft a beautiful new showroom and working studio catering to their tagline: Creativity at Work.

"It is through the close ties we have developed over the past 50 years with the major design firms and home furnishing fabric suppliers in the City that we are able to continue to be 'on trend' in color and design in the product development of all of our hand knotted rugs," Greg Jordt, Executive Vice President, stated.
