Susan Andrews -- Home Textiles Today, December 10, 2007
Concord, N.H. – Hand-crafted area rug, bedding and home furnishing designer and manufacturer Company C enjoyed the limelight when two of its rugs were featured last night on the ABC-TV show “Extreme Makeover: Home Edition.”
Company C donated two floor coverings, its Kiya and Mandarin rugs, for use in the segment created in Athens, Vt., where the program built a new home for its 101st family, the Vitales, to accommodate their handicapped son, Louis Jr.
Kiya is a textured floral, 100% wool tufted rug constructed of a combination of overtwisted and thick loop yarns. Mandarin is a chinoiserie floral-inspired, 100% wool tufted rug.
“We’re glad we could help to make the Vitale family’s dream come true,” said Walter Chapin, Company C’s president. “It is especially meaningful because of the close proximity to our home state of New Hampshire. We like to make our community a little more colorful whenever possible.”
