KAS Rugs recently announced that it will be introducing 8 new collections this High Point Market. The array of collections launching this market encompasses a wide array of looks, textures and pricepoints. New introductions will include vintage traditionals, classic patterns with a farmhouse twist, handknotted flatweaves and relaxed indoor/outdoor rugs just in time for the upcoming spring/summer season.
One collection is Porter, a textured hand-knotted flatweave constructed with wool and bamboo silk with a braided fringe. Ideal for a relaxed reading area, lounging on the rug with a good book is highly encouraged.
Another collection being featured this fall is Cecilia, hand-knotted of 100% rustic and knobby wool. Traditionals set in a farmhouse look and feel make each one unique to the marketplace.
Out of the eight new collections being introduced this market, four of them are under KAS’ newest license Libby Langdon for KAS.
A well-known interior and product designer, Libby Langdon has partnered with KAS to bring her vision of rugs to life. This partnership and Libby’s rug collections will be unveiled at a “Redesign All Day with Rugs and Rosé,” cocktail party on October 14th from 4 to 6 p.m.
On October 15th, from 12:30 to 2 p.m., KAS will host a lunch while Libby presents “The Genesis of a Licensed Collection,” an informative and fast-paced educational seminar focused on her journey and the strategies she employs to define and raise brand awareness, identify licensing opportunities and broaden outreach.
Both events will take place in the KAS showroom, IHFC, G-270.
