Bold pattern and color distinguish the Basma design in cinnabar from Couristan's new Evolution collection on show at Las Vegas Market.
LAS VEGAS -- Couristan is bringing in lots of fashion with its latest collections at Las Vegas Market, and also revealing its 2019 Trend Report to buyers here ahead of its official debut in High Point.
"The show room is actually color-coded based on our trend report, based on color palettes that our design director, Marlys Giordano has selected for the year. So, when you walk in to our show room, you're going to see color labels on our floor that direct buyers to the rugs that fit in to our trend predictions," said Larry Mahurter, vice president of marketing and advertising.
Seen for the first time in Vegas are Couristan's Europa, Evolution, Kaleidoscope, Nomad and Sevilla collections. "We've also added new designs to collections that were winners for us fall High Point previews, either in brick and mortar or online."
Kaleidoscope and Sevilla had leverage in e-commerce because of the color usage and their construction -- they are very trendy. Nomad, and Radiance, and Europa were just shown at High Point for reactionary purposes. We got a great reaction on those and were able to get those in production and inventory rather quickly because they are all machine made products."
Couristan is offering market specials on all products available for the first time at winter markets, Mahurter said.
Couristan's Evolution collection's Basma in cinnabar gives traditional a modern edge.
The Evolution collection is face to face Wilton woven of 100 percent heatset Courtron polypropylene. The line offers cutting edge twists on traditional patterns and each design has a unique tasseled fringe. Power-loomed in Turkey, Evolution rugs are offered in six standard sizes and a runner.
The Nomad collection by Couristan is Wilton woven of polyester with frisee accents.
Couristan introduces the Nomad collection in simple transitional and soft contemporary designs that complement myriad interior design themes. The range is face to face Wilton woven in Belgium of 100 percent polyester with poly frisee accents. Nomad rugs are available in six standard sizes and a runner.
