Momeni Closes High Point Showroom

Looking to streamline its sales efforts, upscale rug house Momeni Inc. is closing its long-time High Point, N.C. showroom.

Reza Momeni, president, said his sales staff has been "spending too much time in showrooms rather than on the road, where most of their business is built." Also working against "the influx of" markets is declining retailer traffic at these events, he added.

"An overall assessment of our presence at the various markets came into play," he said of the decision to shut down its International Home Furnishings Center space, where Momeni has showed on the third floor for more than 10 years.

Momeni is now focused on two markets — the International Area Rug and the Las Vegas markets — in Atlanta's AmericasMart and the Las Vegas World Market Center, respectively.

Momeni is also keeping its flagship showroom at company headquarters here.
