Kalaty Rug Corporation won one of the industry’s most prestigious awards, the America’s Magnificent Carpet Award (AMCA), which was presented at a gala ceremony during the International Area Rug Market in Atlanta earlier this month. Kalaty won for one of its heirloom-quality hand-knotted rug designs from the contemporary Juno Collection. The winning rug, JN-079, won in the hand-knotted category for rugs retailing between $50 and $100 per square foot.

A strong holiday season and a positive outlook for 2019 drove significant buying at The Atlanta International Gift and Home Furnishings Market® and The Atlanta International Area Rug Market® according to International Market Centers (IMC). Held January 8-15, 2019, the markets showcased more than 9,000 brands across more than 1,400 showrooms — 70 of which were new and expanded — and 3,300 temporary booths — more than 10 percent of which were new-to-Atlanta. Buyers from all 50 states and 66 countries visited, with upticks in attendance from the northeast and southeast regions in particular.

Leading floor covering and home accents manufacturer Nourison will release an extensive selection of hand-crafted broadloom, textured wovens, and a large expansion of U.S. produced tufted wools for 2019 at The International Surface Event on January 23 - 25 in Las Vegas.

Nourison will introduce Tacoma (shown below), Terazza and Tundra, a series of hand-crafted, textured, and patterned micro-loop carpets in an extra-wide 15’ width. These finely crafted products come in a variety of natural and color-rich tones and can be converted into beautiful area rugs as well.

Felicity 2 and Majesty 2 are revivals of two previous, extremely successful tufted wool Nourison products. They are expertly produced from top quality New Zealand wool in Nourison’s U.S. tufting factory, and tip sheared for extra textural appeal. Both Frontier and Hyannis are U.S.-made and feature innovative constructions and yarn systems to create beautiful striated, textured looks.

Nourison is also updating its classic best-sellers Nepal and Starlight Collections with new colors for a fresh, on-trend palette.

In Nourison’s Nourtex division, exciting textured and patterned hand-crafted collections include Organic Trellis, Hollywood and Sheer Luster. These collections offer upscale styling and construction with wool and polysilk, yet are also value priced in an extra-wide 15’ width.

For high-style and incredible value, Nourtex is launching Rustic Textures, Perspectives and Lumiere Collections. These patterned cut piles offer unique luster and texture variation to capture that designer look, with the use of innovative synthetic yarns making them practical and affordable as well.

Hagaman new introductions include Plaid Chic, and extension of the top-selling Elegance collection. The U.S.-made Classique Collection with Graphique, Jardin, and Soiree styles, offers subtle elegance with tonal patterns in cut and loop, New Zealand wool construction, and custom color options. Hagaman (shown below) also adds its first synthetic product with its new Finesse Collection, a super-soft, super-lustrous velvet in 100% nylon.

Nourison, located at Booth 6133 at Surfaces, includes new products from Nourison, Nourtex and Hagaman Carpet.
