A crop of emerging interior designers has been chosen by Feizy to create an original rug collection, to debut at High Point Market in spring 2016. The company has announced its eight finalists for the new Haute Trends collection. “We met with so many incredibly talented interior designers across the country. While it was so hard to narrow it down to just eight, these finalists really stood out, and we are excited to see their imaginations come to life in beautiful rug designs,” said Kim Vance, the company's vice president of marketing and communications.
The finalists include:
Michel Smith Boyd, Michel Smith Boyd Interiors in Atlanta
Julia Buckingham, Buckingham Interiors + Design in Chicago
Shay Geyer, IBB Design Fine Furnishings in Dallas
Holly Hollingsworth Phillips, The English Room in Charlotte
Kerrie Kelly, Kerrie Kelly Design Lab in Sacramento
Kelly Sutton, Kelly Sutton Design in West Hollywood
Erinn Valencich, Erinn V Design Group in Los Angeles
Jackie Von Tobel, Jackie Von Tobel in Las Vegas
An internal panel will narrow the finalists down to four by the end of the year. Those chosen will unveil their designs for two hand-tufted rugs at next spring’s High Point Market.
