Foreign Accents Bows Handmade Rug Collection
Cecile Corral -- Home Textiles Today, August 18, 2008
Contemporary area rug company Foreign Accents is launching a new ultra-modern collection it calls Elementz.
The rugs are hand-woven in India of a soft blend of metallic colored polyester fibers, and are constructed in soft, shaggy textures sculpted to still offer an edgy appeal, the company said.The design direction takes its cues from today's polished metal, brushed steel and chrome looks popular in high-end kitchens, media spaces and urban dwellings. Elementz rugs are available in a variety of colors, shapes, sizes and textures as well as in custom dimensions.
Foreign Accents plans to debut the collection during the High Point Market, Oct. 20 to 26. The company's showroom there is at The Suites at Market Square in space G-105.
Elementz can also be seen on Foreign Accents' website, www.foreign-accents.com.
A Foreign Accents area rug will be featured in a televised room makeover on The Fine Living Network cable channel program, "Work That Room," with celebrity decorator Christopher Lowell. The program will air twice, Aug. 30 and Sept. 27, and both times at 6 p.m. EST.
