HIGH POINT, N.C. -- Momeni showed off not only its latest assortment of area rugs, including new additions to its popular Lemieux et Cie program and Momeni label designs, but also a larger footprint that incorporates a next-door space to feature its growing assortment of one-of-a-kind rugs. 

In fact, after showcasing its vast assortment of one-of-a kind rugs in showrooms separated from its main space in the Hamilton wing at IHFC at several past High Point Markets, Momeni expanded its running line space at the fall 2021 event with addition of an adjacent showroom (H345) that allows customers to shop OAKs and new collections in one comprehensive visit.

In addition to growing its OAKs presentation, a move that was celebrated at the fall market by the Momeni family, the rug maker also presented a range of new area rugs under the Momeni label, in a range of constructions, including handmade designs, tufted, and machine-made. Also, on display for the first time is an expanded assortment from its collaboration with Lemieux et Cie at the October market. Below is a tour of Momeni's High Point Market showroom and area rug introductions.
