Garland, Log Cabin team up to showcase rugs
June 20, 2006-- Home Textiles Today,
Dalton, Ga. – For the first time together, sister companies Garland Carpet & Rug and Log Cabin will showcase their wares in New York at a permanent showroom during the home textiles market in August.
Steve Snyder, vp for both companies, told HTT the 1,000-square-foot space in suite 514 of 261 Fifth Avenue will be evenly split between Garland’s tufted area rugs and Log Cabin’s tufted bath rugs to display all the new product introductions.
Garland was primarily a remnant rug supplier, creating large area rugs made of carpet, until the past few years when it added tufted fashion area rugs to its assortment.
Log Cabin was a more than 60-year-old, privately held company when Garland's owners purchased it, adding bath rugs to its assortment and expanding its tufting capabilities.
Products from both companies are all made domestically at the plants here. Garland serves major mass retailers and Log Cabin's customers include smaller chains. But at the New York Home Textiles Market, both will be pursuing larger and higher-end channels with an expanded assortment of more fashion products.
