GRUND SAYS GAMBLE ON HOUSEWARES SHOW PAID OFF FOR U.S.
America exhibit at the International Home + Housewares Show featured
more than 200 new "Americanized" designer bath and accent rugs.
Thousands of products were on exhibit at the International Home + Housewares
Show March 7 to 10, 2015, but only one space was decked out with fashion accent
rugs. Grund, a 25-year-old Czech Republic-based company officially launched its
line to the U.S. market at the annual housewares show "because we wanted to
stand out from the competition," said Michael Twer, vice president/general
manager, of Grund America, headquartered in Charlotte, NC.
