DALTON, Ga.—Oriental Weavers will open a new showroom at 295 Fifth Avenue in New York next month, in time for the New York Home Fashions Market. Almost double the size of its former space at more than 10,000 square feet, the showroom will include product from Oriental Weavers USA and Sphinx by Oriental Weavers, and will now be able to show collections from its OW Hospitality division as well. The new showroom will be on the seventh floor in space #719.
The company will have an opening celebration party on Sept. 10, from 4-7 p.m. during the market.
The company said the new space is “a very inviting and comfortable environment,” and will showcase machine-woven, printed and handcrafted accent and area rugs, as well as broadloom, Axminster, rug pad and other product categories.
“With the breadth of our current area rug assortment and tremendous growth in other segments of our business, such as OW Hospitality, the new expanded showroom was essential for us to showcase our existing product line and new market introductions,” said Michael Riley, president of Oriental Weavers USA. “The New York Home Fashions Market is the premier market for the largest retailers in North America and New York City is also a key hub for the global A & D community and plays a pivotal role for OW Hospitality by having a hospitality presence there. We are excited about our new expanded showroom, and our commitment to the global marketplace.”
