High Point, NC- (March 2024) – Custom Rug Manufacturer, Creative Accents is sharing their newest designer collaboration with Creative Artist, Parker Heath, CEO + Founder of PAR KER made, heading into the big debut at Spring High Point Market (April 13-17, 2024).

“Our team is thrilled to debut our collaboration with PAR KER made, featuring Parker Heath’s brand of uniquely modern abstract designs.  The collection of hand-tufted rugs will be shown exclusively in the Thayer Coggin showroom at the upcoming High Point Market.’ Andy Hensler, Creative Accents Co-Owner commented, ‘Parker’s artistic essence and impeccable design intuition is reflected in each design in the collection.”

Creative Accents has served as a leading manufacturer of custom, hand-tufted rugs since 1967.  Each rug is hand-tufted to order in California, using time-honored craftsmanship techniques and US-supplied raw materials, allowing Creative Accents to craft custom and bespoke rugs for customers across North America in as little as 8 weeks.  “Three generations of our family have been working with our craftsmen and designers to provide rugs crafted to our customer’s exacting specifications for over 55 years.  Because each rug is hand-tufted to order, we say “yes” to almost any requested design,  shape, size or color, providing our customers with a “no compromise” option that results in an exquisitely crafted custom rug.” Creative Accents Co-owners Linda and Andy Hensler shared.

PAR KER made’s collection with Creative Accents includes 5 designs that are a combination of abstract artwork painted or hand drawn illustrations that exhibit bold, raw and contrasting patterns, all of which  are staples of Parker Heath’s original designs. Heath who is an academically trained studio artist, primarily works with paint on canvas, and regularly introduces organic sculptural materials into his work, like coffee grounds, to emphasize the conversation of  heavy texture and the beauty of raw material. His final compositions embody an aesthetic, most clearly seen in this collection, deeming the name “Modern Primitive”, where dialogue about contrasting elements exist in works that blend modern & contemporary motifs, with primal influences. Each of Parker’s striking designs feature exquisite brush work, natural earth tones, es, organic shapes, and  striking modern art motifs. 

The Henslers went on to share details about initial conversations with Heath, “Parker shared his portfolio and  we were instantly drawn to the vision and aesthetic of each piece. He offers an elegant blend of Fine-art, meets Mid-Century Modern with just a hint of Southwestern energy. We knew the Modern-Primitive feel and  rawness of textures would work perfectly in a hand-crafted rug.” 

“Each of my designs evoke a sense of  a love for mid-century  modern design elements, combining with contrasted organic, primal, motifs  that can be seen as an influence  of  my SoCal upbringing.’ Parker Heath, Creative Artist + CEO of PAR KER made commented, ‘It is a huge honor and I am beyond thrilled to be joining the roster of legendary designers and artists that Creative Accents works with.” Creative Accents Designer Collection is a collaboration with an impressive list of design legends to modern day superstars including industrial and furniture designers Rick Lee and Stanley Jay Fridman, streetwear designer Nathan Gilreath, Artist and Interior Designers, Anthony Cordeiro and Jacquin Headon, Suzanne Milano, Colleen Schaeffer, and one of the leading modern furniture designers of the 20th century – Milo Ray Baughman, Jr., as well as Milo’s protégé Guy Hill.

Hensler commented, “As a manufacturer of bespoke custom rugs, Creative Accents is constantly collaborating with the design industry to bring their original designs to life! We are always honored to show with Thayer Coggin, who share our commitment to hand crafting each piece they produce and to original design.” Thayer Coggin is well known in high-end furniture circles, and CEO Royale Wiggin said to Designers Today, that 2024 will find the company honoring its heritage and 70-year legacy while also working to expand its customer base to new audiences who are in search for something entirely unique.
