In addition, Mohawk Home will debut another six new collections at the spring edition of this semi-annual home furnishings fair:
Crafted in a printed and woven constructions, in a range of price points, Anthology is crafted of a mix of fiber types (predominately polyester, including space-dyed options, as well as microfiber detailing).

The largest new collection rolling out at NY Home Fashions Market, Canyon is comprised of 60 designs and will get top billing at the Mohawk showroom. Made of a mix of fiber types -- predominately polyester, including space-dyed options, as well as microfiber detailing -- the assortment features casual, "California cool" patterns in a broad range of colors from global jewel-tones to weathered grays and blues.
Historical, French-inspired, and palatial motifs in pared down, ultra-soft color ways are the signature of Chateau. These printed, woven and tufted rugs are made predominately polyester, including space-dyed options, with microfiber detailing.

The most dramatic collection in terms of design being debuted in New York, Fusion features palms, animal prints and exotic florals, in softer, toned down colors (when compared with last year's Gigi collection).
"Customers who like the idea of a leopard print area rug but aren't sure if they want to commit to such an edgy design will love the styles in the Fusion collection," said Neil Hegwood, VP of design and product development, Mohawk. "We've taken rich, bold patterns and given them a subtle, livable look by fusing them with our new shag constructions, like Himalaya and Downtown. The end result is a very texture-rich rug that is playful, but not overbearing."
Available in printed, woven and shag options, Impressions is a made up of graphic modern designs in more neutral color palettes and includes new constructions, including shag, for a textural, layered look with distressed detailing.
Made of a mix of fiber types -- predominately polyester, including space-dyed options, as well as microfiber detailing -- Prairie is available in printed, woven and tufted constructions. These rugs are an ultra-feminine continuation/extension of the farmhouse trend and feature motifs like dainty florals and pretty pops of soft blush and dusty blue.
