This collection of exquisitely patterned, richly colored rugs reflects the essence of timeless beauty and style. The artists of Nourison have devised patterns that evoke impressions of the skillful old-world artisans of Persia and Europe. Each rug is Wilton woven in nylon, with a velvety luster. Two distinctive antiqued color palettes created the look of fine antiques, in rugs with a luxurious hand and feel that is remarkably similar to wool. This collection has been recognized with the Dealer's Choice Award for its Karabagh Linen and Vienna Beige designs, and an ADEX Award for Meshed Brick. Antiquities...the legacy of the past brought vividly to life.

Shaw got its start in 1946 as Star Dye Company, a small business that dyed tufted scatter rugs. The events that transformed the company into the world's largest carpet manufacturer are too numerous to write...or even fully know. But the philosophy guiding those events meeting customers, determine their needs, and supplying those needs hasn't changed much through the years.
In 1958, with $300,000 in sales, the company expanded dramatically and soon started finishing carpet as Star Finishing Company.
In 1967, a holding company was formed to acquire Philadelphia Carpet Company, founded in 1846. The holding company added Star Finishing to the fold one year later, marking the company's first move into carpet manufacturing. The holding company went public as Shaw Industries, Inc. in 1971 with approximately $43 million in sales and 900 employees. In 1985, Shaw made its first appearance on the list of America's largest corporations--the Fortune 500--with more than $500 million in sales and close to 5,000 employees.
Continually differentiating its service and adding value for customers motivated every major move in the company's development, among them:
*Generating its own yarn supply with the 1972 purchase of its first yarn plant
*Seeing the potential of newly developed continuous dyeing processes and acquiring its first continuous dye plant in 1973
*Creating its own trucking subsidiary, dramatically improving shipments nationwide
*Significantly expanding direct sales to retailers beginning in 1982
*Establishing regional distribution centers across the United States
*Modernizing plants and equipment in the early 1980s, allowing it to respond quickly to such breakthroughs as stain resistant carpet
*Decreasing the consumption of fuel, water, and electricity in the manufacturing process and finding innovative recycling solutions for manufacturing waste
*Acquiring Amoco's polypropylene fiber production facilities in 1992 and providing consumers popular Berber styles
*Starting the rug division in 1993 and the hard surfaces division in 1998 with the launch of Shaw Ceramics
The desire to be the industry's low-cost provider was also a determining factor in Shaw's decisions, namely the acquisitions that brought such respected names as Cabin Crafts and Sutton under the Shaw umbrella. It also played a role in one of the largest and most significant moves in the company's history: the merger of Shaw and Queen Carpets.
On January 4, 2001, Shaw began a new chapter in its long and varied history with the completion of its sale to Berkshire Hathaway Inc., the holding company of renowned investor Warren E. Buffett. Berkshire Hathaway is known for buying and holding businesses that have a dominant market share, have strong management teams, and are considered undervalued in the stock market. With the move, Shaw ended its tenure as a public company.
Today, with the leadership of Vance Bell, CEO, and Randy Merritt, President, Shaw is a full-service flooring company with more than $4 billion in annual sales and approximately 25,000 employees. The employees' daily efforts illustrate their commitment and their determination to stay on top in an ever-changing and highly competitive marketplace.
