Thom Filicia Partners with Feizy Rugs on New Collection
Rug manufacturer Feizy Rugs is partnering with powerhouse interior and product designer, tastemaker and television personality Thom Filicia on a new line of rugs slated to debut at High Point Market, June 5-9.
“I’m thrilled to announce my partnership with Feizy Rugs and excited to share our inaugural collection, launching this June at High Point Market,” Filicia shared. “It’s an honor to be working with such a well-respected family-owned company with over 45 years of experience and a proven track record of excellence within the rug industry.”
Debut pieces will focus heavily on texture and feature timeless neutral palettes with pops of color throughout. The initial Thom Filicia Home Collection for Feizy will represent a variety of constructions at an accessible price-point, and planning is already underway to expand the Thom Filicia product offering to Feizy’s Fine Collection as well.
“Great design tells a story of where you’ve been, where you are and where you’re going,” the designer explained, “and the Thom Filicia Home Collection for Feizy will strive to do just that by offering a stylish collection that has a distinctively timely yet timeless perspective-- where refined mixes with raw, industrial plays against the organic, and color, material and texture are used in thoughtful ways to create a collection with a classic, tailored and sophisticated point of view.”
For their part, Feizy was extremely selective when vetting potential partners. With over 45 years in the industry, the company’s commitment to enduring yet on-trend design and quality craftsmanship demanded a design partner of the highest caliber.
“When we decided to pursue a licensing partner, Thom and his team were at the top of our list,” explained Justin Yeck, vice president of omnichannel sales, marketing and product development and design, Feizy. “It was an absolute no-brainer. His approach to design and the respect he has earned within the design community made him a natural fit. We couldn’t be more excited about this partnership, marrying our rug expertise with his sophisticated point of view to ultimately create beautiful pieces that are sure to resonate with designers and consumers alike.”
