COVER Connect New York 2024

June 18, 2024

The upcoming edition of CCNY will take place at the Metropolitan Pavilion and The Altman Building from 14–16 September

We are excited to be back in Manhattan to host the fourth edition of our boutique trade show COVER Connect New York (CCNY) this September. Forty dynamic rug brands are participating—all carefully selected to ensure that buyers encounter the broadest possible range of high-end rugs and carpets spanning every style, construction and application.

Together, the companies’ owners and staff bring a wealth of experience, knowledge and passion for handmade rugs, weaving, design and innovation. Their shared expertise and capabilities mean that visitors to the show can not only shop for the latest product offerings, but can also be inspired by design-led collections and educated in discussions with forward-thinking, knowledgeable rug-industry people.

A collaborative atmosphere is integral to this show, which aims to support and promote those exploring and developing the extraordinary and timeless potential of woven flooring, from the traditional Persian or Turkish rug to ultra-modern art piece and everything between. The event is held at the same two intimate neighbouring venues as last year, in Chelsea.

We’re pleased to welcome several new exhibitors for 2024: the inimitable Lila Valadan from Hamburg; Momeni and S&H Rugs who showed at COVER Connect Las Vegas in January; and Bespoke Tibetan Carpets, who will host an awards ceremony on the evening of the show’s opening day, Saturday 14 September. ‘Woven Dreams: A Tibetan Rug Art Competition’ is being held to celebrate and promote the rich heritage of Tibetan rug artistry while fostering creativity and innovation within the global Tibetan artistic community. The winner of the competition will be announced at Tibet House US, and the owners of four CCNY exhibiting companies—Battilossi, New Moon, Tamarian and Creative Matters— are on the judging panel along with COVER editor Lucy Upward.
