Colors: Blue Color

This Spring SAMAD will be showing a variety of striking new designs and colorways from its bestselling Nordic Collection. Nordic Rugs are inspired by the landscapes of the Fjords and embody the age-old concept of sophistication through simplicity. Hand-knotted with New Zealand wool, the Natural Ivory and Natural Black colorways use 100% un-dyed yarn that provides an innately organic quality.

Karastan Rugs is making a grand debut of their new, expansive showroom with two VIP events hosted by notable designer Stacy Garcia. During these events, attendees will receive insights into Stacy’s design process and finding the perfect partnership.

“As we return to High Point Market, we are excited to bring more than a beautiful showroom with fashion-forward rugs, this year we are bringing interactive events with sought-after leaders in design,” said Michael Riley, senior vice president of sales and product, Karastan Rugs. “Stacy Garcia is a world-renowned pattern and product designer. And at our Karastan Rugs brunch, attendees will gain an exclusive look about the inspiration behind her designs.”

With just hours to go until the close of pre-registration and days away from the start of the spring High Point Market, April 2-6, High Point Market Authority (HPMA) leaders are optimistic for the strongest Market since before the COVID-19 pandemic.

Pre-registration data is tracking several percentage points higher than at this point before last fall’s Market, according to Tom Conley, HPMA’s president and CEO. “The registration patterns since COVID show people deciding on attendance much closer to the event date, and that’s still holding true this cycle. Given such, we expect to inch up a few more percentage points over this next week and end up with our largest attendance numbers since 2019.”

Leading floor covering and home accents manufacturer Nourison will be introducing Reserve Custom Studio at High Point Market. Reserve Custom Studio is a custom rug program where customers can choose from over 300 designs and select their yarn colors and rug size. The rugs in the program are hand-knotted and shipped within 3-5 months based on size.
