New Hampshire-based design and manufacturing resource Company C will reveal new spring 2020 collections at High Point Market. The showroom, located at IHFC M126, will feature new rugs and accent pillows with a focus on performance and will display the luxe to performance line up in vignettes with its signature furniture collection.
“Color is the foundation of all our collections, and this season we were most inspired by all shades of green. We used this palette for designs created in both luxurious fibers and eco-friendly yarns for performance,” said Company C co-founder and colorful living officer Christine Chapin.
“We were also enamored with historic treasures from America’s past with designs from traditional folk crafts to Native American textiles in their original saturated hues. Our goal was to carry our color stories throughout our various collections, creating options to meet customer demand for both luxury and approachable price point home furnishings.”
The Greenhouse Collection springs forward with greens, soft blues and soothing naturals for indoor and outdoor decors. The Solange rug, available in celadon and cornflower, is a handwoven jacquard rug that merges modern geometry with traditional elegance for fine interiors. The Somner rug is rendered in heathered shades of light green, aqua, blue and charcoal hand woven from polyester yarn made from recycled plastic bottles. The Pea Pods rug, hand hooked in polypropylene, is a whimsical delight using a mix of crisp greens accented with pops of teal and true blue on a warm natural ground.
Navaho weavings and traditional American folk art inspired the brand’s American Lore Collection. The performance Jackson rug with its graphic southwest motifs is hand-hooked in easy-care polypropylene yarns softly mottled in red and denim blue. The Acacia rug, hand-tufted in super textural wool yarns, offers a modern edit on the tree of life pattern, a classic symbol of growth and new beginnings. The Tasha rug recreates the lavish look of Old-World crewelwork in luxuriant hues of red, orange, pink, teal and green with accents of purple against a navy ground. The Vista pillow, an abstract beauty reminiscent of a forested mountainside offers a textural landscape rendered in pine, navy and teal.
The ideal afternoon in an Italian café inspired the Caffe Latte Collection. The Biscotti rug, an indoor/outdoor delight woven in recycled yarns, brings the favorite Italian cookie into the home. The Seesaw pillow offers artful embroidery in frothy neutrals that round out the café indulgence.
Every spring, the Summer Brights Collection is updated. This season, Under-the-Sea, joins the line. A performance rug inspired by the colorful world beneath the waves, the design was based on best-selling wool rug, To-Bay-Go. Rounding out the assortment is the Wild Rose pillow with boastful blooms and black and white piping for added contrast, available in four colorways.
The company says early reaction to Spring 2020 has been very strong with their retail partners and designers. More than 20 new rug and textiles designs join over 95 upholstery silhouettes and 125 signature fabrics featured in the Company C for Norwalk collection.
