CULVER CITY, Calif.–The Rug Market America has just launched its Swatch Sample program, with more than 85 rug designs available to designers and retailers. Initially, the program only includes interior rug designs from its Maison collection, which is handtufted of wool and silk, but that is expected to expand. A package plan as well as individual purchase/loan options are available.
“Our program has been designed for designers needing to show our product to clients or showrooms that need a better way to merchandise our products,” said Andrew Shabtai, vice president, The Rug Market America. “We are excited to now provide affordable and convenient sales assistance across all levels of our customer base.”
The introductory program includes an individual swatch purchase-return option as well as an 18-piece package swatch program. The package program allows the retailer or designer to select 18 swatches for a discounted fee of $500 plus freight, as well as receive free freight in the continental U.S. on subsequent standard size rug orders for one full year.
“For designers and their customers, this program allows them to experience the look and feel of a rug prior to ordering,” Shabtai said. “The actual production quality of our rugs is best realized close up and this program provides a convenient way to do just that.”
