“We’re escalating our assortment this season with more handwoven products to widen our product breadth extensively,” said Marketing Associate, Brianne Coradini, “while staying focused on bringing unique and trendy machine-wovens to market.”
Four of the 14 new collections are Morris, Perry, Portland and Provo.
Morris is a collection of seven different handwoven jute and polyester printed chindis with unique colors. Bohemian flair combined with a multi-textured feel of vintage prints add a rustic element and definite depth to floors.
Perry presents textured geometric patterns with hi-lo effects and tassels, handwoven in India and available in five unique patterns. The colors are neutral enough to go with any decor and bold enough to make the room pop.
Portland features machine woven rugs with a fringe, creating antique appeal out of polyester printed patterns. These rugs have a striking washed vintage traditional element to them. Available in seven different patterns and all unique in color and design.
Expanding their indoor-outdoor footprint, Provo consists of textured machine-woven rugs made of UV-treated polypropylene that are easy to care for year-round. Combining trendy pop colors and a thin, textured pile, these rugs are easy to decorate around.
Growing KAS’ indoor-outdoor assortment further, they continue to see success in the Libby Langdon Hamptons outdoor rugs. Introducing six new patterns this market, designed by Libby Langdon herself, these outdoor rugs are built to stand the test of time indoors or out. Hand-hooked of UV-treated polypropelene in a coastal color palette, these rugs are perfect for a relaxed outdoor setting or a refreshing indoors.
