Furniture World News


cmi (Colonial Mills, Inc.), a leading manufacturer of a complete line of braided-texture area rugs and accessories, has donated $2,500 to the Red Cross in Providence, Rhode Island to benefit the victims of the hurricanes that recently ravaged the country’s southern region. “Our employees were really affected by the images on television of people trying to come to terms with losing everything as a result of the hurricanes,” said Lynne Minchello, Marketing Manager at cmi. “It was decided to take up a collection and the company matched the donations received from our employees.” Founded in 1977, cmi is headquartered in Pawtucket, Rhode Island, the home of Old Slater Mill and the birthplace of our nation’s textile industry. The company has specialized in manufacturing braided-texture rugs and accessories since its inception. cmi’s mission to be the innovator in the braided-texture rug category consistently produces new colors, styles, award-winning designs and shapes which most appeal to today’s consumer. These advances continue to demonstrate to consumers that braided is simply a construction process and not a style. cmi sells under its own brand name in thousands of specialty retailers and has private label programs and/or customized programs with a number of major, national brands.
