After several years absence, Kalaty Rug Corporation celebrates its return to the High Point Market by unveiling a new 3,700-square-foot showroom in the IHFC, space G-369. Significantly larger than the company’s former location at Historic Market Square, Kalaty’s new IHFC Green wing showroom has ample square footage for showcasing its growing line of award-winning, heirloom-quality area rugs as well as its K-Two series of popular-priced rug collections.
“High Point is today’s essential market for all aspects of home furnishings, and we always knew we would return,” says company president Ramin Kalaty. So, after searching for just the right location to accommodate the depth and breadth of our line, we have found the right space on the 3rd floor of the IHFC. Kalaty is thrilled to be back in High Point, and we’re excited to be celebrating the grand opening of our newest showroom here at the April market."
At this inaugural High Point market, Kalaty is presenting the company’s latest heirloom-quality rug collections along with new additions to best-selling collections in all style genres, weaves and constructions. These traditional, transitional and modern area rugs offer something for nearly every taste and price category in colors ranging from cool blues and greys to warm and spicy to rich jewel tones as well as soft, subtle hues.
