Rugs “101”

Presented by Loloi Rugs and International Market Centers


Rugs were once considered a luxury item for wealthy homeowners, but modern advancements in design over the past decade have transformed the rug category entirely, resulting in beautiful styles that are affordable to everyone. While this transformation is well-known, many people still don’t feel comfortable buying (or selling) rugs because of the multitude of different rug types available in the market today.

Cyrus Loloi, an executive with Loloi Rugs along with Cherisse Jensen and Emily Lancaster, two of Loloi’s product developers aim to share their rug expertise with you so as a buyer you will become more knowledgable about the different rug categories. This seminar will cover the basics; different rug constructions, fiber types, tips & tricks for selecting rug sizes for your room and more. Cyrus, Cherisse and Emily will also share what’s hot right now in the rug market, explore upcoming trends and leave time for buyers to ask individual questions. Everyone is invited!

Noon – 1pm
