12 Hand Tufted, Multidimensional Wool Rugs
Connie Post by Rizzy Home will debut with twelve, hand-tufted and multi-dimensional wool rugs, emphasizing quality hand work, color and accessible prices. By Fall, the Connie Post line will grow to encompass coordinating decorative pillows, textiles and top-of-bed products.
Top 100 Furniture Retailers
According to Steve Roan, Managing Director of Rizzy Home America, “Connie Post provides us not only with her own unique patterns and colorations, but also her stellar reputation and credibility with one of the most elusive channels of distribution for rug companies: Top 100 furniture retailers.”
Retail Concept Helps Retailers Stand Apart
Steve Roan says the new collection with Post is less about introducing new product at Market than it is “a retail concept designed to help retailers stand apart and differentiate themselves in their marketplaces. In tandem with Connie, our goal is to offer furniture retailers something that nobody else can.”
Rizzy Home Focuses on Logistics and Customer Service
Led by Vice President Larry Hedrick, Rizzy Home has been traveling a steady path of reinvention throughout the past 18 months, laser-focused on improving critical operations like logistics and customer service. At the same time, the vertically integrated company founded by Rizwan and Shamsu Ansari has been fast gaining attention for exceptional design.
Visual Marketing by Connie Post
Renowned as a retail design strategist, author, trend translator and developer of both product and brands, Connie Post has built a career on understanding where consumers are, what they want most, and where they are going next. As the standard bearer of visual marketing in the home furnishings industry for the past three decades, she is responsible for the look of more than 20 million square feet of retail and wholesale space around the globe.
“In creating these designs for Rizzy Home, I approached the rugs as artwork for hard-surface floors,” Post says of her new watercolor-inspired patterns. “There is a fluidity to the designs that I love, and the colors are cheerful, bright, and of course, chosen to work beautifully with today’s preponderance of neutral upholstery. We know that it doesn’t take long for consumers to tire of beige and begin to long for color, and this new program with Rizzy Home offers the excitement they need—making it fast, easy and affordable to refresh their spaces. For furniture retailers, this new dealer-friendly program will provide a welcome, traffic-building solution.”
Launch Party – Saturday – High Point
A gala launch party for Connie Post by Rizzy Home is set for Saturday, April 14 from 4 to 6 p.m., in the company’s showroom, Showplace, Space 3515. For more information, visit www.rizzyhome.com.
