Rug manufacturers will showcase their latest Wools of New Zealand branded rugs at High Point Market, Oct. 16-21, in High Point, N.C. They include Shaw Living, Momeni, Sphinx by Oriental Weavers and Creative Accent Area Rugs.
Shaw Living is eager to return to High Point this fall, according to Kim Barta, brand manager of Shaw Living. “There’s a good array of customers who go to High Point, especially national furniture chains, and with markets becoming more regionalized, High Point is important for the southeastern U.S. We had customers tell us that they missed us in High Point. For some, this is the only market they attend and it is important that Shaw be there as well,” she said.
“We are excited to once again have a permanent home at this very important market and are hoping for more of the same great customers that we greeted in the past,” added Marlys Giordano, director of marketing and product development for Momeni.
Aaron Gray, marketing director of Oriental Weavers, said business is beginning to pick back up, making the show an important showcase for the company's rugs. “We hope that momentum will continue through the fourth quarter of 2010. Our last two shows in High Point have been considered successful, and we expect nothing less for the upcoming show,” Gray noted.
