Feizy fetes 40th anniversary in Vegas with new collections
Larry Thomas -- Furniture Today, July 10, 2013
Dallas - Continuing with its year-long celebration of its 40th anniversary this year, Feizy Rugs is set to debut several new collections at the Las Vegas World Market, July 29-August 2.
The company noted this year has already been its "most prolific in terms of the number and innovative nature of new introductions."
The Lorrain collection utilizes a technique similar to tie-dying. Monochromatic tones are represented in bold patterns and in hues of varying saturation to create a watercolor effect. These pieces are hand hooked and suited to a variety of casual living spaces.
"The technique we are using with the Lorrain collection is unlike any we've seen in the marketplace today," said John Feizy, founder and ceo. "Each and every piece is a unique work of art, because the hand dying process of these rugs results in varying color saturation across the design. We've only ever seen this type of effect achieved in hand knotted rugs; the Lorrain Collection will be accessible to a much wider audience because of its attractive price point."
The Azeri collections, offered in four different creels, feature soft contemporary and transitional designs power loomed in a pile of wool with art silk highlights. Ikat, erased traditional and intricate iron-work designs are woven in a variety of palettes that feature hues of gray ranging from silver to charcoal, chocolate and ecru. Softness and striking highlights are the hallmarks of these designs.
Other notable new introductions in Las Vegas will include the Sorel and Harlow collections, both power loomed of polypropylene, as well as the Raphia I and II collections of indoor/outdoor multi-textured rugs.
Hand knotted debuts will include the Pera collection of Oushaks, which is being added to the Home collection, as well as additions to the Dim Sum, Channels and Ashi collections. Two new designs have been added to the Tesoro collection of bamboo and wool rugs from the Fine collection.
