Nourison Offers Virtual Market to Designers and Dealers Unable to Attend Atlanta and Las Vegas
Floor covering resource Nourison has announced it will host a virtual summer market on Aug. 18 at 1 p.m. EST. The virtual market is designed to connect with Nourison dealers and interior designers who are unable to attend Atlanta or Las Vegas Market. The company will also be showing at Atlanta and Las Vegas Markets.
The hour-long Zoom session will start with a short business discussion, followed by a designer chat with David Santiago of Casi Santi Interior Design. The company will then preview new introductions for area rugs, carpets and home accents and will support the virtual market with digital communications via e-blasts, landing pages, online catalogs, imagery and videos. The live session will be recorded and made available on www.nourison.com/summermarket2020 to anyone not able to attend the live session.
“Hosting a virtual market allows us to safely connect with customers that we can’t see in-person and also allows us to connect with customers that normally do not attend markets” said Andrew Peykar, president at Nourison. “After receiving so much positive feedback from our Spring Virtual Market, we knew this was a format that we needed to continue hosting.”
Designers and dealers attending the virtual market will be able to take advantage of special promotions and place discounted orders at www.nourison.com.
During the summer markets, Nourison will be introducing over 100 new products, including the hand-knotted, Tibetan-inspired Plateau area rug collection, with textured stripes in an earth tone palette.
New designs will be added to Prismatic, Starry Nights and kathy Ireland Home Malta area rug collections. Prismatic styles will feature abstract painterly designs in multicolor and seafoam/silver colors. Starry Nights, with Nouri-Guard fiber protectant, will include intricate floral patterns enhanced with a vintage fade technique, in blush, blue and grey tones. The kathy Ireland Home Malta Collection will introduce new designs with classic Persian motifs and vintage style in blue, grey, beige and ivory.
Mina Victory Home Accents will be launching a fresh, chic whimsical Sofia Collection for relaxed, comfortable style, as well as the Plush Collection for kids. New decorative throw pillows will center on soft blush, bright yellow and deep navy colorways.
