AmericasMart Press Release

ATLANTA – October 15, 2013—The continuing integration of rug and home merchandise in new lifestyle presentations on AmericasMart Atlanta floors three through six gains huge momentum in January 2014 with the expansion of Loloi Rugs into a 14,000 square-foot showroom, according to Jeffrey L. Portman, president and chief operating officer of AmericasMart parent company AMC, Inc.

Loloi’s expansion marks a significant 10-year milestone in its AmericasMart operations following the opening of its original corporate showroom in 2004.  “We cannot wait to debut our new Atlanta showroom in January 2014, which will be open year-round for AmericasMart visitors,” says Amir Loloi, founder and president of Loloi Rugs.


“The new space is entirely rebuilt and redesigned to offer a more comfortable and optimal shopping experience for our customers, while also enriching that experience with modern amenities such as a full-service bar, premium surround sound speakers, flat screens and more.  With our 10-year anniversary also occurring in January, the new showroom could not come at a better time.”

The relocated and expanded showroom, located on AmericasMart Building 1 Floor 4, is part of a comprehensive plan that has integrated nearly 60,000 square feet of new HOME and RUG showrooms in the past year.

“Loloi Rugs has long championed the convergence of rug and home furnishings with highly innovative and imaginative strategies designed to harness the full potential of lifestyle merchandising,” notes Portman.  “Amir and his team understand the power of a multi-sensory showroom experience. Their new space will create a unique environment to enliven the senses, engage buyers and showcase product in creatively fresh ways,” Portman adds.

The expanded Loloi Rugs showroom will open at The Atlanta International Gift & Home Furnishings Market® (Showrooms: Tuesday, January 7 – Tuesday, January 14, 2014; Temporaries: Thursday, January 9 – Monday, January 13, 2014) and The Atlanta International Area Rug Market®  featuring the National Oriental Rug Show (Showrooms: Wednesday, January 8 – Saturday, January 11, 2014; Temporaries: Thursday, January 9 – Saturday, January 11, 2014).
