Retail Editor 3 -- Home Textiles Today, December 23, 2013
Atlanta - Rug and pillow manufacturer Loloi is adding nine new rug collections to its product mix in time for the concurrent Atlanta International Gift & Home Furnishings Market and Atlanta International Area Rug Market next month.
The rugs vary in construction, style and price point. The manufacturer will also add 29 pillow styles to the collection that launched in October in High Point. All rug and pillow collections will be showcased in Loloi's new Americasmart showroom, Building 1, 4-D-2.
New collections include:
Hand-knotted in India of wool and viscose, the Ashton Collection is a fashionable reinterpretation on traditional design. The patterns feature well worn, purposeful details while the color palette is fresh and reflects today's interiors.
Hand-loomed wool and shimmery viscose from India, these linear, tonal designs are casual, chic and ultra-sophisticated. With intricately shaded neutrals like charcoal, ivory, mocha and silver, the designs in the Barkley Collection provide a sense of harmony and peace.
Hand-tufted in China with soft polyester, Callie Shag offers a series of stylish shags in six color combinations. The unique texture pairs plush, twisted base yarns with fine, longer yarns for a combination that's more durable, sophisticated and eye-catching than your normal shag rug.
Power-loomed in China of 100% polyester, the Discover Collection balances contemporary design with the comfort of soft microfiber. The patterns invoke an abstract modern art feel, adorned with a color palette of cool grays, beiges and taupes and a ribbed texture for added versatility.
Inspired by Loloi's top-selling Xavier rugs, the Empress Collection from India features the same 100% jute hand-knotted construction reimagined in more versatile transitional designs. Each piece offers a thick-bodied pile, chunky knots and beautifully saturated colors.
Hand-made in China, the Gabriella Collection is 100% polyester in a cut-and-loop, high low construction. Featuring modern floral reinterpretations, each design is punctuated by a raised texture.
Hand-knotted entirely of refurbished sari silks from India, each design reverberates in stunning colors like ruby red and sapphire blue. The Giselle Collection makes for a vibrant collection, ideal for contemporary to transitional interiors.
Hand-knotted in wool and viscose from India, the Pearl Collection echoes with a quiet elegance that recalls yesterday even as it celebrates today. Simultaneously vintage and modern, these deconstructed traditional patterns transport whispers of the past into contemporary chic through color, scale and texture.
Hand-made in India in a cut-and-loop, high-low construction, each wool Walden design enjoys an airy, open pattern that is punctuated with texture and complemented with a palette perfect for today's lifestyles. These elegant, classic designs apply historic rug motifs in fresh, nuanced ways, creating timeless looks with modern appeal.
Hand-made in China, the Gabriella Collection is 100% polyester in a cut-and-loop, high low construction. The rugs are among Loloi’s new introductions planned for January.
