    Passion for Pink: Name That Rug! Contest

    Here are the new Passion for Pink rug designs! We are hoping to unveil our newest product designs this September but need a little help with the product names. We’d like to give even more meaning to the products by naming the rugs after brave and courageous individuals whose lives have been affected by breast cancer. We’d love to hear your story. We’re looking for someone who took a stand against breast cancer and empowered others with their compassion, fiery dedication and unwavering commitment to the cause.

    Our namesakes will receive one rug in each design and also have their story featured in our upcoming Spring 2011 catalog. Please submit your story by posting on our blog or facebook page,

    We will be accepting submissions through June 15, 2010.

    To tell you a little more about the rugs, one of the designs features impressionist flowers full of color and character while the other rug incorporates five different shades of pink and features curlicues and circular medallions hooked in different densities to give the pattern textural depth. A spin-off of Company C’s best-selling Garland and Giverny rug designs, the passion for pink rugs are hand-hooked and made of 100 percent wool. Available for a limited time only, these rugs were specially designed to benefit breast cancer awareness and community outreach. Company C will donate twenty percent of the retail price of each rug sold to support breast cancer awareness, research and education.

    Our entire organization felt very strongly about supporting this cause and what better to show our support than through the use of color and design! We hope our new designs will inspire colorful living for our customers and those affected by breast cancer.

    Our Passion for Pink rugs will be available for sale to end consumers in September 2010. Both rugs will be available at more than 800 specialty retailers nationwide; at company-owned retail stores in Hingham, MA, Portland, ME and Concord, NH; and online at To find a dealer in the area or for additional information, visit or call 800.818.8288.
