Rug Showrooms Expand, Move for Las Vegas Market
Posted on July 17, 2012 by
NEW YORK-For the upcoming Las Vegas Market, less than two weeks away, several rug manufacturers have either moved or expanded their showrooms, and will debut the new spaces at the show.
Two rug companies are relocating to Building A. Jaunty will be in A455 in a new 3,000-square-foot showroom. It's a "better move," said Kami Navid, executive vice president, and conveniently located across from the escalators. In addition, the new showroom is near floral and lighting showrooms, and Navid liked the mix, as the company targets retailers that use rugs as accessories.
Central Oriental has relocated its showroom to Building A as well, to space A452. The new 2,200-square-foot showroom is "a nicer space," said Jim Thompson, vice president, sales and marketing.
Jaipur will move to a new building, Building B, for its new space B424. At 8,500 square feet, the new showroom is larger than the previous one of 5,000 square feet. The new showroom will be near more accessories companies, such as lighting and home decor, which makes for a good mix of products, said Josh Roberts, vice president, sales and marketing. In addition, "the Western U.S. is our fastest growing market."
As previously announced, Loloi Rugs has expanded its showroom space in Las Vegas Market, growing it to 21,500 square feet, the company's largest trade show space in the U.S. The company will show in Building B, B480.
Also previously announced, Harounian Rugs has expanded its showroom in Building B, B420.
The Las Vegas Market begins July 30.
