Nourison Features Francis Toumbakaris Collaboration at High Point Market
Leading floor covering and home accents manufacturer Nourison showcased a Prismatic vignette designed by Francis Toumbakaris, at their showroom during High Point Market.
The vignette featured two new designs added to the best-selling Prismatic area rug collection, PRS25 Multicolor and PRS26 Seafoam/Gold as well as a gallery wall of 2x3 rug samples displayed as framed art. PRS25 Multicolor recreates the look of a beautiful sunset in rich shades of red, golden yellow, orange, pink, purple and blue, and PRS26 Seafoam/Gold features multi-toned blues and splashes of yellow.
The Prismatic collection is known for unique designs, vibrant color and hand-carved texture, made from a luxurious blend of fine New Zealand wool and silky Luxcelle fibers.
“I always felt that these beautiful rugs look like paintings, so the inspiration came right away. I said we need to create a gallery wall with frames, framed as samples so it looks like a little gallery, and that’s what you are seeing,” said Toumbakaris.
Toumbakaris has a natural eye for design, successfully leveraging his background in dance and the arts, crafting Francis Interiors into one of New York City’s most versatile interior design firms with clients residing in high-end apartments, townhouses and condos. His livable luxury design and love of color was the perfect fit for Nourison and bringing the Prismatic vignette to life.
Nourison hopes to continue partnering with Toumbakaris and other designers to create an inspirational vignette at future markets.
