LOS ANGELES- Marking its 26th anniversary in business this year, indoor and outdoor area rug company The Rug Market America has moved into a new corporate headquarters location here that includes a larger showroom space.
The new address is 4200 Sepulveda Boulevard in Culver City, Calif., and its on-site corporate showroom is open by appointment for members of the trade.
"The offices are trendy, fashionable and architecturally pleasing," said owner Mike Shabtai, who started the company in 1985 and now operates it with his two sons - Aaron and Andrew, both of whom serve in vice president posts.
"We now have ample room for showcasing our full product line to the trade and a sample gallery that will be a valuable tool for use by sales representatives and buyers alike," Shabtai continued.
The new corporate headquarter showroom is one of three that are new this year for the company, which is also debuting a new space at Chicago's Merchandise Mart in adjoining suites 15-117 and 15-119 as well as the newly expanded showroom at Atlanta's AmericasMart in suite 12-C in Building 1.
The company is also marking its anniversary year with a new catalog that shows all of The Rug Market's current line as well as the latest introductions. Those include designer lines as well as value rug additions to its Ecconox line that The Rug Market developed in response to the economic slowdown.
