Home & Textiles Today Staff -- Home Textiles Today, September 8, 2011
Dalton, Ga. - Domestic area and accent rug manufacturer Oriental Weavers has developed two new collections - Dylan and Blakely - that it will launch this month during the New York Home Fashions Market.
Dylan is a grouping of vibrantly colored and highly textured area rugs. Anchored by bright red and orange, citron green and lapis blues, the bold palette is paired with strong neutral shades like chocolate, steel gray and ivory for a balanced color story. Motifs include novelty-type interpretations of modern geometrics and graphic florals. These rugs are machine woven in the U.S.A. on polypropylene. The suggested retail price point of a 5-by-8 is $99.
For the next higher price bracket -- $139 for a 5-by-8, Oriental Weavers has come up the Blakely collection. These machine-made rugs are centered on tonal shades of gray and neutrals that "pop" with bright accent colors, such as golden citrus. Designs include simple geometric patterns and large, over-scaled floral motifs. Various polypropylene yarn textures are used to add visual interest and give a luxurious hand to these rugs, which are woven in the U.S.A.
