Classic Diamond Pattern Sisal Rugs

It’s everywhere! Just pick up an interior design magazine such as Luxe, House Beautiful, Architectural Digest, Coastal Living, Veranda, etc.  This pattern is timeless.

Stark Carpet calls is Natura, but it is the same as the Prestige Mills Pueblo Diamond Sisal.

 It it a classic: a bit dressier than a plain sisal, and it is long-lasting and flexible, it is able to function in any home, and almost any area. Pueblo Sisal has a relaxed look of a natural fiber rug but you can mix Pueblo sisal with more formal elements such as silk, great art, and more traditional pieces.

HEMPHILL’S RUGS & CARPETS – HOME ACCENTS TODAY RETAIL STAR

The Best & The Brightest

Home Accents Today is proud to present its 13th annual 50 Retail Stars list.

Sponsored by AmericasMart Atlanta, the Retail Stars list honors independent brick-and- mortar retailers of home accents and accessories. The list includes furniture stores, home décor boutiques and interior design retailers that are creative in their merchandising, contribute to their communities, and stand out from their competition.

This year’s Stars represents a bit more of a cross section of the country than in recent years, as 27 states have at least one representative on the compilation, up from last year’s total of 25 states. Regionally, the Southeast has the heaviest representation in this year’s list with stores in 11 states, followed by stores in six states each in the Northeast and Midwest regions while five Western U.S. states are included. California leads the way with eight Stars while Texas, Florida, Pennsylvania and Kentucky have three stores each. Washington, Indiana, Illinois, North Carolina, New York, Maryland, Oklahoma and Louisiana each have two stores listed.

The 2017 Stars have a mix of old and new shops. Seventeen have been in business for less than 10 years, three stores have been in business for at least 50 years, and 17 have been open for between 20 and 49 years.

Of those legacy retailers in this year’s mix, Oskar Huber Furniture & Design, with stores in New Jersey and Pennsylvania, has been in operation since 1927 and is in its fourth generation of Huber family ownership. Other notables include Barbara Stewart Interiors, which has been in business since 1952, and California powerhouse Jerome’s, which first opened in 1954. Speaking of Jerome’s, it has by far the highest sales volume among this year’s Stars with more than $230 million. It’s one of nine stores with sales exceed- ing $10 million, although the majority of Stars (37) posted annual sales at $5 million or below.

Another store with a larger sales volume, Nadeau, is easily the most widespread, with 32 stores nationwide. It’s one of 12 retailers that have multiple stores in this year’s list.

Interior design services continue to be a sales generator for our stores. In this year’s list, the ratio of stores that offer the services versus those that don’t is around 8-to-1.

E-commerce sales took a slight dip from last year’s list, as 21 retailers reported selling home furnishings online, versus half in 2016. Most reported online sales at less than 5 (Cornerstone Shop & Gallery, Sunnyland Patio Furniture, Smallhome and Modern Market each reported 1% of volume), while Biscuit Home said e-commerce accounts for around 40% of its total sales volume.

Social media is a part of every- day life in America and that’s reflected in the stores’ presence on a number of key channels. All 50 of this year’s Stars are on Facebook while Instagram – with a photo-based platform that plays well at the retail level – is next with 47 users. Thirty-six stores have their own Pinterest pages while 27 are on Twitter.

In the coming issues of Home Accents Today, we’ll share more of our Stars’ retail strategies, ideas and other areas that make them stand out from others. Until then, we hope you’ll find inspiration in the photos and summaries on the following pages.

Hemphill’s Honored by Home Accents Today

Hemphill’s Rugs & Carpets has been selected as a 2014 Retail Star.  Below is the article from Home Accents Today.

Home Accents Today announced the names of the 50 businesses selected for inclusion on its 2014 Retail Stars list.
Retail Stars 2014 Home Accents Today
The annual list, now in its 10th year, recognizes independent brick-and-mortar retailers of home accents, including furniture stores and interior design boutiques, who are creative in their merchandising, have a positive presence in their local communities and are distinguishing themselves from the competition. The Retail Stars list is not a ranking, and is not based on sales volume.

The businesses named to the list are based in 21 states with Texas and California contributing seven and five stores, respectively. This year’s diverse group, 90% of which operate in a single location, ranges in size from A Studio, a 400-sq.-ft. shop situated on Michigan’s scenic “Tunnel of Trees” highway, to the 1.2 million-sq.-ft. showrooms of  Jamestown, North Carolina’s Furnitureland South. A third of the stores are ringing up annual sales in excess of $3 million, and 10 stores are at $5 million and above. The 2014 Retail Stars include one centenarian — Reeds/Jenss of Amherst, N.Y., which opened in 1912 — and a 97-year-old, McCurry Furniture Co. of Warrior, Ala. At the other end of the spectrum, half of the stores have been open 10 years or less.

“The retail climate is changing faster than ever before, and it takes a lot of effort to stay on top in these changing times,” said Jenny Heinzen York, editor in chief of Home Accents Today. “The 2014 Retail Stars exemplify excellence in independent retail and are true role models for their innovation, customer service, marketing and merchandising strategies which make them leaders among their peers. This honor recognizes all their skills, not to mention their hard work, and should serve as a reminder to us all to support local businesses.”

Members of the home furnishings industry were invited to suggest stores and retailers were encouraged to submit2014 Home Accents Today Retail Stars information describing their businesses. The list was compiled and narrowed down by Home Accents Today’s research analysts and editors.

The 50 Retail Stars list, sponsored by AmericasMart Atlanta, publishes each year in the May issue. A copy of the 2014 Retail Stars story, with photos and information about the honorees, may be purchased and downloaded here.
