New in 2023 at TISE will be an entire pavilion dedicated to the best hand-made rugs the world has to offer. COVER Magazine will host COVER Connect Las Vegas, a boutique trade show on the SURFACES show floor, with nine of the industry’s top brands: Design Materials Inc., French Accents, Kirkit, Knots Rugs, Pampas Leather, Samad, Stark Studio Rugs, Tamarian, and Tibet Rug Company.
“Rugs are really booming in terms of development and design … they are not just the standard rectangle with a border anymore, they may have rounded edges, they come in unusual shapes. Often, multiple textures, materials and weaving techniques are used in one rug, and they can be bespoke as well. The custom factor is a really important element; rugs are the perfect platform for individuals and interior designers to express their personal style,” observed Rachel Meek, project manager for COVER Connect and assistant editor at COVER magazine, published quarterly by UK-based Hali Publications, Ltd.
What will the visitor to COVER Connect Las Vegas see? Here’s a quick look.
“I think area rugs as a whole are ever more important in interiors. Over the past few years, people have been redefining their spaces and how they use them, particularly at home,” said Meek. “The potential variations are limitless.”
