Playthings Staff -- Gifts & Dec, August 1, 2012
The Rug Market America's latest additions to its Resort collection of weather resistant, UV-coated polyester rugs for the outdoors and indoors include contemporary over-sized patterns like Suzani, seen here, as well as others like Moroccan Tile and Kiwi Fruit.
Surya Inc.'s Lybra collection is a new addition to the company's Artistic Weavers division. Made to look modern yet timeless, it features a chevron pattern originally found on ancient pottery at the palace of Knosis in Crete.
Company C takes Indian-and English-inspired paisley looks of yore and reinterprets them in modern-day hues on its new High Country collection. A series of intricate swirls, teardrops and richly colored paisleys are depicted in bold, over-scaled designs that are less traditional and more artistic than earlier similar styles - as seen here in the Devonshire pattern.
Kas Rugs' new Optic collection comprises shag styles that are hand-tufted of multi-textured polyester and are manufactured in India. There are six designs in total, including this one called Jewel-tone Spiral, and three area rug sizes.
Safavieh's new Beach House outdoor rug collection offers a range of patterns, from Oushak to Peshawar to Sumack motifs, that are enhanced with a polypropylene, four-color antiqued-look construction from Turkey.
Jellybean is introducing a series of new seasonal fall/winter designs by Challis and Roos. Made in a 21-by-33 size, these rugs are machine washable and made from 35% recycled materials in a polypropylene and acrylic blend. Their construction is hand hooked for indoor or outdoor use and they are made in China. Seen here is the Autumn Colors arboreal pattern.
Couristan has arranged a fresh bouquet of colorful and over-sized contemporary floral patterns with its new Botaniqué collection. Hand-crafted of New Zealand blended wool in a cut and loop pile, each rug is finished with a special tip-sheared technique that is done by hand. Colors include coral, cranberry, teal, khaki, and sage.
cmi uses bright seasonal colors and subtle style details to give flair to its new Outdoor Tweed rectangle rug collection. It comes in 14 different color variations, including this bright blue and green combination, and features a contoured shape that works for outside as well as indoor living spaces. These rugs - which range in size from accent through 12-by-15 - are made in the United States of 100% polypropylene for easy care and cleaning and are stain and fade resistant.
|Kaleen’s new Habitat collection feels right at home with its assortment of patterns and colors — like Salty Leaves seen here — that are made to reflect a more active lifestyle that invites the expansion of indoor living space to the outdoors. UV treated against fading and water protected, these hand-made rugs are made in China of 100% multiple-ply polypropylene and feature a non-skid backing.|
