Antique Rug Connection a Newcomer to High Point Market with New Showroom

CHINO, CALIF. - Antique Rug Connection, a Pakistani producer of upscale handmade area rugs and carpeting, is opening a new permanent showroom at High Point in time for the market this month.
     The 1,062-square-foot showroom is located in space 333 at 200 N. Hamilton.
     Owned by the husband-and wife team of Nadeem Akbar and MehnazRokerya-Akbar, Antique Rug Connection has been a manufacturer and supplier of semi-antique and antique rugs for almost 25 years. The company operates a facility in Pakistan as well as a U.S. office and warehouse here, where it maintains stock of its entire line.
     "For many years, we operated a store in Los Angeles and did exhibitions throughout California," said Rokerya-Akbar, director of business development. "Recently, we refocused our business to concentrate on the design and production of high quality, trend-setting, one-of-a kind rugs sold through designers and upscale rug boutiques."
     The company's rugs are ecofriendly "because of the process by which they are made and the materials and dyes that are used," Rokerya-Akbar added.
     At the market, Antique Rug Connection will introduce its new Susani collection of whimsical styles that combine steely colors with lively accent tones. Also, the company will also show new design additions to its Platinum Oushaak and Kotaan lines.
