Furniture World News on

Top-to-bottom Wrangler® brand style is now entirely possible thanks to a new line of area rugs and floor coverings from the Wrangler Home™ line. Created in a partnership with Dallas-based Feizy Rugs™, the new collections will be available nationwide this spring. The Wrangler Home™ line of furnishings and decorative accessories made its debut at the fall 2004 IHFM and represents the same quality, style and value that made the Wrangler® brand a household name. The new rugs feature warm and supple swaths of color such as real teal blue, garnet, sprout and sand. New designs include sleek lines and simple shapes that create geometric styles while heirloom quality and antique styling are prevalent in other pieces. The vitality of the ancient Persian culture with its mix of tradition and pattern is strongly represented in these introductions as well. “The Wrangler® brand values tradition and so does Feizy Rugs™,” said George Weldon, the Wrangler® brand’s director of licensing. “Together, we can provide our customers with a full line of quality products to complement the Wrangler® brand lifestyle.” Feizy Rugs™ is a major manufacturer, designer, dealer and collector of fine hand knotted Persian and Oriental area rugs. Since its creation in 1973, Feizy Rugs™ has gained an internationally renowned reputation for its unique combination of innovative design and artistic talent. “It is great to work with the Wrangler® brand,” said John Feizy, president and founder of Feizy Rugs™. “We are both committed to, and passionate about, reaching loyal consumers by providing relevant lifestyle products. Feizy Rugs™ couldn’t be more pleased with the partnership and the line.” New Lighting Collection The Wrangler Home™ collection has partnered with High Point-based Sedgefield® by Adams to expand its line of furnishings and decorative accessories to include a new line of lighting for the home.
