To launch in April at High Point Market, the licensed rug line will include designs for both the thomaspaul designer brand and Fernez’s more affordable brand, seedling by thomaspaul.
Consisting of handknotted, handtufted, shag and flatwoven constructions, and in printed, textures and natural fiber styles, the line will target major online retailers in North America and Europe. Both rug collections will be based on the bold contemporary signature graphic designs for which both thomaspaul and Nuloom are known, and will coordinate with the thomaspaul pillow collection as well as his other licensed programs, including upholstery, outdoor fabrics, bedding, bath and lighting. The agreement was arranged by New York based licensing firm, Product Lounge.
“Thomaspaul is an influential home products designer whose designs have redefined the decorative pillow category and we feel his style will bring that same impact to rugs,” said Koorosh Yaraghi, president of Nuloom.
Fernez added, “I am excited that Nuloom has the capability to manufacture rugs in a great variety of fabrications and techniques and that they can manufacture in price points for both of my brands.” He founded the New York-based thomaspaul brand in 2001.
