Alex Lemonde-Gray -- Furniture Today, August 8, 2012
DALTON, Ga. — Sphinx by Oriental Weavers and OW Hospitality will move to an expanded showroom in time for the winter Las Vegas Market, Jan. 28-Feb. 1.
The new showroom in World Market Center space C-395 is 50% larger than the company's previous space. It will have high ceilings for displaying larger rugs and a "fresh and chic look" similar to the company's other showrooms, according to a press release.
"With the breadth of our current area rug assortment, and tremendous growth in other segments of our business, such as OW Hospitality, the new expanded showroom was essential for us to showcase our existing product line and new market introductions," said Michael Riley, president of Oriental Weavers USA.
The company will host a grand opening celebration during the market.
During the past year, Oriental Weavers has added new showrooms or renovated existing spaces in High Point, Atlanta, New York, London and now Las Vegas.
The company also said its Las Vegas relocation will support WMC owner International Market Centers' plan to develop C3, a collection of high-end home décor resources and an extension of the market's B3 initiative that launched at this summer's market.
