There are some accessories that are considered timeless, capable of giving the final accent to an otherwise unfinished project. Rugs are the luxurious elements par excellence: from the sumptuous artistic one – giving the perfect edge to the ambiance – to the comfy rug that only adds to a room’s comfortable vibe, rugs are appreciated in every texture and shape. The Rugshow, the event specialized in ornamental rugs, will come back with a 2019 edition to celebrate the most loved home accessories. As a non-profit industry association, it was born to celebrate the industry’s products, promoting and expanding the insiders’ knowledge through a consortium of different rug industry members, largely from North America: the aim is to organize events and devise new promotion plans to let themselves known to the whole design world. The Rugshow is the perfect place for brands to promote their products and to establish valid and powerful connections with their peers. Born in 2012, the event tries to change the traditional approach often used by this kind of organizations – i.e. incapable of complying with exhibitors and buyers’ requests – in a more open community, run by existing exhibitors, the perfect choices when it comes to promote high-end area rugs and the quality craftsmanship behind them to outsiders.
