HIGH POINT, N.C. -- The area rug category topped the shopping lists of retailers and designers looking for fresh fashion at the fall 2021 edition of High Point Market.

New area rugs were on-point in fashion, color, and technology with rug makers ticking off the newest palettes, abstract, transitional, and traditional designs, and innovative mixes of yarn. Machine-made rugs grabbed attention – whether for mimicking hand-knotted or taking washable designs to the next level in sizes up to 5x7 or even 8x10 depending on the showroom.

The editors at RugNews.com scoured the showroom buildings in search of the market hits. Read on to see the highlights from the top area rug exhibitors in Part 1 of this two-part exclusive. (Make sure not to miss Part 2, where our coverage continues.)
