Oriental Weavers' rugs make TV debut
Home & Textiles Today Staff -- Home Textiles Today, October 8, 2001
Area rugs by Oriental Weavers of America will soon be making cameo appearances on new October episodes and segments of the popular "The Christopher Lowell Show," which airs daily on cable television's Discovery Channel.
Last December, Oriental Weavers and "The Christopher Lowell Show" — an hour-long show that provides inexpensive, innovative interior design tips — formed an agreement: Oriental Weavers provides various rugs for segments and general use for the show in exchange for verbal mentions during the shows and rolling credits at the end of the shows. In addition, a link to the show's website, www.christopherlowell.discovery.com, will be added to Oriental Weavers's website, www.owarug.com.
The episodes in which OWA rugs will be featured are as follows:
Oct. 17: 3 p.m., "Mobile Home Makeovers";
Oct. 18: 3 p.m., "A Day in the Life: Christopher Lowell";
Oct. 26: 3 p.m., "Haute Interiors".
Lowell, known as cable TV's do-it-yourself decorator, was recently presented the Daytime Emmy Award for Outstanding Service Show host.
