Louis de Poortere reacquires Colourhouse
June 14, 2002,
Calhoun, GA — Two years after parting ways, area and accent rug importer Louis de Poortere (LDP) has repurchased wool runner and carpet supplier and distributor Colourhouse to help restructure its business.
LDP formerly owned Colourhouse and maintained it as a division for about 17 years until the two companies split in an effort to seek their own respective product suppliers overseas.
Grunewald said she expects that under the new ownership, Colourhouse will be out of Chapter 11 protection "within weeks" soon after it is set up, again, as a division of LDP — but one that is operated independently.
Colourhouse is a supplier of 100 percent wool runners and carpets from Belgium and also some nylon carpets made domestically.
