PORT WASHINGTON, N.Y., Sept. 22, 2015 - Safavieh, top manufacturer of fine rugs and home furnishings, announced today that the company has been named a finalist for the 27th Annual ARTS Awards in the category of “Best Area Rug Manufacturer.” The ARTS Awards, presented annually by the Creative Home Furnishings Network, honor the top companies in the home accents industry for excellence in their areas of expertise. ARTS Awards finalists are grouped into 26 categories representing the best manufacturers, retailers, designers and sales reps in the home furnishings market. The winners in each category will be announced on January 22, 2016, at the Dallas Total Home & Gift Market.
“We are honored to be selected as a finalist for the ARTS Awards,” said Arash Yaraghi, CEO and president of Safavieh. “Knowing that both our clients and our peers in the industry recognize and appreciate the care and effort we put into manufacturing fine rugs is especially gratifying,” added Yaraghi in commenting on the ARTS Awards being a peer nominated program.
All ARTS Awards finalists will be preparing a digital presentation to be submitted to ARTS by November 6. A panel of judges will then score these presentations along with a sample of the product in order to select the individual winners in each category. As a finalist in the category of Best Area Rug Manufacturer, Safavieh’s presentation will include samples of their marketing campaigns, images of the rug selected for judging, a paper highlighting what distinguishes Safavieh from their peers, and a physical sample of the rug chosen for the competition.
Safavieh is a leading manufacturer and distributor of rugs and home furnishings. The company began more than a century ago as a supplier of antique and finely woven Oriental rugs. Since that time, Safavieh has grown into a multi-national corporation with two million square feet of warehouse space and manufacturing facilities located on three continents. While Safavieh is probably best known for its reputation in the rug industry, the company has evolved into a complete home furnishings outlet with extensive product lines in furniture, lighting, decorative pillows, bedding and home accessories.
As if the rug and furniture business isn’t challenging enough, the staff at Safavieh now has the difficult task of choosing a rug from among their many exquisite collections to present to the ARTS Awards judges. “We will be putting our heads together to choose a rug and create a presentation that best represents our rich history, our dedication to the art of rug making, and the innovative spirit that drives our company forward,” said Yaraghi.
Safavieh is a multi-national manufacturer and distributor of rugs and home furnishings. The company was founded more than 100 years ago and today is based in Port Washington, N.Y. Safavieh services both wholesale and retail clients with showrooms located throughout New York, New Jersey and Connecticut. They also have an online rug and furniture shopping outlet at SafaviehHome.com. Their products include area rugs, home and office furniture, lighting, bedding, and home accessories.
