Renaissance marks a rebirth of design, color and value in the area rug market. It's here that the practicality and softness of Shaw's EverTouch%XAE nylon and the aesthetic natural quality of antique carpets come together in a single collection of fine rugs that, undoubtedly, blurs the line between handmade and machine-made. The majority of the collection is traditional, with a representation of casual transitionals and contemporaries. Each style creates a new expectation, a new benchmark, a new sophistication, and redefines what world class styling is and should be. The colors in this collection combine the neutral tones of antique carpets with the punch of today's most influential accent colors to coordinate with more fabrics, more often. With the introduction of the Renaissance collection, the standard by which we judge the beauty and value of machine-made has been set.
