Feizy Rugs to help furnish Architectural Digest Greenroom at Oscars
Furniture Today Staff -- Furniture Today, February 11, 2013
HOLLYWOOD, Calif. — And the Oscar for rugs goes to Feizy Rugs, for the second consecutive year.
The company says it once again will serve as the foundation for the stars' retreat during the Academy Awards presentations at the Dolby Theatre here on Feb. 24, providing three rugs for the Architectural Digest Greenroom.
"We are so proud to be a part of this celebrated event," said John Feizy, company founder and CEO. "This is a wonderful start to a year in which we are marking our 40th anniversary. Working with such a respected publication and one of the most talented and inspired designers in the industry today is truly a highlight for us as a company."
A design from Feizy's Channels Collection, 7276F Ivory, has been selected to anchor three separate spaces within the exclusive room.
This year's Greenroom, created by interior designer Madeline Stuart, features an Art Deco-influenced look. She said it was inspired by Hollywood legend and 11-time Oscar winner Cedric Gibbons, the art director and production designer who created the backdrops for hundreds of classic films including "The Thin Man," and is credited with designing the Oscar statuette.
"My design for the Architectural Digest Greenroom pays homage to his four decades of film designs. My goal was to design a space where contemporary starts wouldn't be surprised to bump into Cary Grant or Katherine Hepburn," Stuart said.
This is the 11th year that Architectural Digest will produce the exclusive backstage lounge for Oscar presenters and honorees.
