HELLENIC DOUBLES VIEWING OPPORTUNITIES.

NEW YORK-Hellenic Rug Imports rented space at the Jacob K. Javits Convention Center during the New York Home Textiles Show for a special presentation of its new Hellenic Home collection of products. As reported, the new line includes floor coverings, bedding and accessories. In addition to accent and scatter rugs in a variety of materials, such as leather and antique kilim, the introductions include Merino wool blankets, shag leather pillows, and coordinating throws and pillows in rayon chenille.

Back in its permanent showroom at 295 Fifth Ave., Hellenic focused on two ends of the design spectrum: new pieces from its Impressions collection, rich designs and colors translated from Italian art; and new, yet old-school, shags created to do justice to the original Scandinavian Ryas that floored homeowners in the 1960s and 1970s.

"You're looking at hand-hooked, just like the real Rya rugs," said Steve Mazarakis, president of Hellenic, who noted "others couldn't get the look right because they aren't hand-hooked and so they're too uniform-looking. I wanted that authentic '60s uneven shag look and feel."

The first five were shown during the textiles market and are headed "straight to High Point, [N.C.]," Mazarakis said.
