Rugs receive major play at furniture fair
May 26, 2003,
Though billed as a contemporary furniture exhibition, the International Contemporary Furniture Fair at the Javits Center here last week clearly put the spotlight on rugs, and to a lesser extent on decorative pillows, quilts and bedding.
In the home textiles, bedding was low to the floor, typical of the trend for many furniture introductions. Decorative pillows were abundant, with luxurious covers and unique fabrications as key elements.
