Port Washington, NY - High-end area rug house Safavieh recently got a feather in its cap when its Four Seasons indoor/outdoor collection was named by "This Old House" do-it-yourself shelter publication as one of the 100 best new home products of 2012.
The only area rug to win a place on the "TOH Top 100" list this year, Four Seasons is hand-hooked of solution-dyed polypropylene and comes in a broad range of patterns that includes traditional Persian and Moroccan motifs and florals from English country to contemporary styles.
"The TOH Top 100 is the result of an exhaustive search for the most forward-thinking, relevant and necessary new home products out there. Through the winners, we saw several major trends emerge in homes, including bringing the outside in, simplified Do-It-Yourself, and getting high-end looks for less," said Scott Omelianuk, editor, This Old House.
Added Arash Yaraghi, Safavieh principal: "We're honored to be included in the TOH Top 100 list. And we are gratified that This Old House has recognized the great strides in quality and design in the outdoor living category we've taken with Four Seasons. This collection really does blend indoor and outdoor spaces. It is innovative in so many ways, from patterns with neon colors, to multi-colored chintz designs - all unheard of in outdoor a year ago."
Four Seasons, a collection of 30 patterns introduced in July 2012 at the Atlanta Rug Market, is made in China and retails at $320 for a 5x8 size.
The 2012 list marks the second annual "The TOH Top 100" and includes items for people who love houses new or old and are looking for the newest ways to fix them up.
Another home textiles category winner of this year's TOH award was Mohawk Home for a new broadloom carpet product.
"I am confident that these products will impress our readers as much as they did the editors of the magazine and will raise the bar for the industry," added Omelianuk.
