Fort Lee, NJ – May 5, 2021 – Marking 95-years in business, Couristan is once again launching its annual Trend Report video which has become a hallmark in the area rug industry.

This time the identified trends are all about the company getting “Back to Basics”, breaking free while allowing nature to cleanse the end-users souls as we all rediscover our own wellness. The company invites viewers to take a journey with them to Colorado – a land of solidarity….where evergreens resiliently hold their color in winter’s cold grasp, and where each new snow fall generates a fresh beginning. This is where nature meets home.

The identified five key trends have inspired a full range of the company’s recent introductions, award-winning and innovative products. From the textured appearances within the company’s new Brocatelle and Couture Collections, to new designs offered in the company’s renowned Old World Classics   Collection, and the versatility offered within the industry’s “original” outdoor collection, Recife. This video invites viewers to come inside, or perhaps outside to experience the company’s annual trends as they aspire viewers to become inspired.
