Amer Rugs plans major introductions at market

Manufacturer to introduce 13 collections

Rug manufacturer Amer Rugs has big plans for this week’s Atlanta International Gift & Home Furnishings Market.

For starters, the Norcross, Ga.-based producer will roll out 13 new collections from its Americasmart Building 1 5-D-2 showroom. It will also open an auxiliary showroom, located in space 5-D-1, dedicated to showing off its assortment of one-of-a-kind hand-knotted rugs.

Among the key introductions is the Vector Collection. Hand-tufted of New Zealand wool in India, these rugs feature funky geometric patterns in an array of colors.

Additionally, Amer will host a Bollywood-themed party on Thursday night from 6-9 p.m.
