MINEOLA, N.Y.–At next month’s High Point Market, Linon Home Decor Products will welcome six new collections to its line, which will be shown both in its showroom at 220 S. Elm Street in space 202 and in the Powell Furniture showroom, 200 South Main Street, in space 100.
The new collections include Milan, inspired by the 2010 Milan Fashion Week and which consists of power-loomed, heat-set polypropylene rugs that are hand carved in contemporary, transitional and traditional designs. In bright colors for contemporary, transitional and juvenile styles, the Corfu machine-made collection uses a fine heat-set polypropylene frieze yarn and is also hand carved. Metro is a contemporary grouping that is power loomed of polypropylene and carved for definition. Being added to the Trio collection of transitional rugs, 30 new space-dyed polyester designs have a natural abrash affect and include such features as cut and loop, high/low, and hand-carved piles. The shiny polyester shag collection called Confetti also debuts in 10 colors and meets flammability regulations. Another shag program, called Andros, features two contemporary designs in 10 colors in a thick, heat-set frieze yarn.
The company will be offer opportunity buys such as select hand tufted and hand knotted wool and wool and silk programs for 30 to 40 percent off wholesale prices.
In addition, Linon will host its Greek market party on Monday, April 4, beginning at 5:30 p.m, at its Elm Street showroom. Featuring live Greek music from The Brothers Glentsedes, the event will include Greek and Brazilian wine, beer and spirits, Greek cuisine and desserts —and, as always, plate breaking.
