FIRST LOOK: ATLANTA MARKET RUG PREVIEW, PART 2
ATLANTA -- RugNews.comcontinues its exclusive sneak peek coverage of two dozen top-name area rug exhibitors in Part 2 of our comprehensive Atlanta Market Rug Preview.
With a roster of events on deck from Amer, Jaipur Living, Loloi, Safavieh and Surya -- plus the 2019 America's Magnificent Carpets Awards -- the show has lots to offer shoppers in addition to extensive new product launches across 50 permanent and nearly 20 temporary rug exhibitors.
The focus on updated traditional looks, innovative texture, and new color stories to supplement ever popular neutrals makes for an interesting selection covering everything from Persian to Boho and farmhouse.
