10022018 Jaipur Living Intros Two Nikki Chu Rug Collections; Adds New Textural Poufs

The Origins collection by Nikki Chu debuts at High Point Market featuring sophisticated minimalist designs in a neutral color palette.

ACWORTH, GA -- Global rugs and textile furnishings company Jaipur Living will introduce two new collections with interior designer Nikki Chu during the upcoming High Point Market. 

"The continued inspiration for my line is modern globalism," Chu says. "It's about tribal patterns that are reworked to be simplified and feel organic, but work in any space. I love playing with neutral colors and a neutral color palette."
Origins by Nikki Chu is a fresh collection of exquisitely made, handwoven indoor-outdoor rugs. In easy-care polyester, Origins by Nikki Chu is available in a chevron, geometric, or trellis, chain and tiles design.
Jaipur Living will introduce Origins, a polyester indoor outdoor collection by designer Nikki Chu at High Point Market.
"What makes these so special," Chu says, "is that they look completely like indoor rugs, and can change your entire outdoor world. Now that outdoor spaces are adding extra square footage to a home, furniture and accessory companies are making things that go both indoors and outdoors -- from lighting all the way down to decorative accessories. So, I think now is the time to take advantage of making the outdoor space an extension of your home."
The second collection by Nikki Chu debuting in High Point is Mumbai, a contemporary line featuring a blend of wool and viscose in a textured, handwoven flatweave rug. In trending blush and neutrals, these velvety, plush pile designs come in a banded, geometric design.
Mumbai by Nikki Chu Home for Jaipur Living is a textured hand-woven flatweave, shown here in a trending blush colorway.
"This is what I call the perfect, textured solid," Chu says of her Mumbai collection. "Anybody can layer this into their home with any décor style. Whatever color palette you have, these are beautifully neutral rugs. The blush has a little bit of a neutral tone in it so it doesn't read completely pink. It's just a nice hit of color. "These are a little bit of a mix between a Scandinavian and tribal pattern," she explained noting they adapt to either decorating style.
The Ultra by Nikki Chu collection is adding a trio of contemporary poufs in sustainable wool, cotton and jute. Their bold, geometric designs make a statement in gray, black, and cream. Chu describes these poufs as a departure from her collection's current sleek leather and quilted metallic offerings.
Nikki Chu Home introduces the softer side of poufs, with her Ultra collection in sustainable wool, cotton and jute.
"I really had the idea to bring some texture and character to the pouf world. Taking some rugs that were flatweave and had a lot of character had a lot of high-low applique to it and turning it into a pouf was the way to go. The whole collection is about layering texture and layering tone on tone, which is what I'm known for, and a lot of ivory, natural linen, and black. These poufs are fun. They have a lot of personality. And I think they truly speak to who I am as a designer."
Jaipur Living will showcase the textural Ultra collection of poufs designed by Nikki Chu Home.
Jaipur Living is pleased to include Nikki Chu's latest designs in its fall High Point Market introductions. A dozen new collections and almost 140 new rugs feature vivid and radiant colors, the softest yarns, and striking, hand-knotted rugs at accessible prices.
Jaipur Living's Showplace showroom 3300 will be open 9am to 6pm during High Point Market beginning October 12.
