The full outdoor collection is being unveiled next month at the Casual Market in Chicago. Two Events at High Point will introduce the 5 collections.
Saturday October 14th – 4 – 6 PM ” Redesign All Day with Rugs and Rosé,” cocktail party to meet Libby Langdon,the author and makeover television personality that promises to be filled with surprises for dealers, designers and media from 4 to 6 p.m.
Sunday, October 15,12:30 to 2 p.m., “The Genesis of a Licensed Collection: The Process of Bringing a Designer Line to Market,” – a fast-paced educational seminar focused on Libby Langdon’s journey and the strategies Langdon employs to define and raise brand awareness, identify licensing opportunities and broaden outreach.
The Five Collections are designed to cross-merchandise with Langdon’s ever-growing constellation of licensed products for a variety of leading design-focused companies including Crystorama, Bradburn Home, and most recently, NorthCape.
The Hamptons Collection—Indoor/Outdoor rugs hand-hooked of UV-treated polypropylene fibers are available in seven sizes ranging from a non-skid
doormat at 21”x34” up to a 9’x13’ rug to cater to larger outdoor living spaces, Langdon featured the Collection’s
Highview and Madison patterns in blue and aqua colorways in this summer’s Hampton Designer Showhouse where she
designed the large outdoor terrace and pool deck areas. “These rugs are very practical, but the style and look is upscale
and luxe,” she says.
The Soho Collection—Hand-tufted wool rugs in a multi-textured cut and loop pile with high/low effects for visual
interest. With nearly one dozen designs encompassing six sizes, Soho draws on a trending pattern style seen in
everything from marble tile to fabric and fashion. “It’s a softer take on the herringbone idea and in cool color combos it’s
a fresh twist on transitional,” the designer says. “The Brick by Brick pattern has a wonderful mix of a geometric feel anda gate pattern. Depending on the colorway chosen it can look contemporary or transitional. The Cooper Square pattern
tricks the eye with a shade relief visual and the wide range of color options make a dynamic choice for many different types of spaces.”
The Winston Collection—Machine woven of textured polypropylene frisee yarn in a dense thick pile,
The Collection includes one dozen designs across six sizes offering softness and luxury with a laid back transitional feel. “The
smoky blues, grays and beiges blend for a relaxing color palette that work seamlessly in so many of today’s interior
design looks,” Langdon describes. “There are several different designs within the Winston collection ranging from trellis
patterns to gate patterns inspired by historical gardens.”
The Homespun Collection—Handwoven in wool by artisans in a flat rustic pile, Libby’s Homespun collection offers woven patterns that meld farmhouse chic with timeless designs that speak to looks wildly popular with today’s consumer. “Neutral colorways, heavy texture and subtle pattern allow this collection to let rustic design elements shine,” she says.
Color Pop Pillow Collection—Handwoven in a variety of fabrics in brilliant colorways, Libby’s Color Pop Pillow Collection is designed on the premise that while patterns can be so personal, brightly colored throw pillows with a stylish border detail are the perfect add-on or “small.” “A crisp border trim detail adds just the right amount of style punch and can work beautifully layered with other patterned pillows,” Langdon notes. Offered in 18”x18” square pillows, as well as 12”x20” lumbar shapes, the pillows seamlessly coordinate with Libby’s rug collections and act as the perfect finishing touch in a space.
