PORT WASHINGTON, N.Y.-“This Old House” magazine has named Safavieh’s Four Seasons indoor/outdoor rugs as one of the 100 best new home products of 2012, the only area rug named to this year’s list. Introduced at the Atlanta International Area Rug Market this past July, Four Seasons is hand-hooked of solution-dyed polypropylene and patterns range from traditional Persian and Moroccan motifs to English country florals to contemporary looks.
“The TOH Top 100 is the result of an exhaustive search for the most forward-thinking, relevant and necessary new home products out there,” said Scott Omelianuk, editor of “This Old House.” “Through the winners, we saw several major trends emerge in homes, including bringing the outside in, simplified do-it-yourself and getting high-end looks for less.”
Arash Yaraghi, Safavieh principal, added “We’re honored to be included in the TOH Top 100 list. And we are gratified that “This Old House” has recognized the great strides in quality and design in the outdoor living category we’ve taken with Four Seasons. This collection really does blend indoor and outdoor spaces. It is innovative in so many ways, from patterns with neon colors, to multi-colored chintz designs—all unheard of in outdoor a year ago.”
The 2012 list marks the second annual TOH Top 100 list, and a complete list can be found at ThisOldHouse.com/top100 and on newsstands, beginning tomorrow.
