Surya Hosts Candice Olson Discussion
Rug and accessories supplier Surya will host an intimate discussion with television design personality and best-selling author Candice Olson during High Point Market.
The event, titled “Style-Transcending Neutrals,” will take place in Surya’s showroom—4100 Showplace—Saturday, Oct. 17 from 11 a.m. to noon.
Olson will discuss how neutral palettes can be used to accentuate simple lines, pattern and texture to create looks that are refined yet distinctly fresh and modern. She will also share her newest rug and pillow collections for Surya. At the conclusion of the discussion, attendees will have the opportunity to participate in a question and answer session with the designer.
“Neutrals are the hottest-selling and most versatile color trend of the moment and provide a great foundation for adding sophistication to living spaces, no matter what the decor style,” said Satya Tiwari, president of Surya. “We are excited that Candice is joining us at market to share her signature aesthetic and style tips for making the most of this very popular trend.”
In addition to showcasing the designer’s newest offerings, Surya will feature a dedicated area within its showroom displaying a full range of coordinating neutral-hued rugs and accessories available in multiple styles and price points.
Formed in 2008, Surya’s partnership with Olson has evolved to include a line of more than 160 rug designs, including recently introduced outdoor styles, as well as 40 pillow options. Surya will introduce two new rug collections from the designer at the fall market: Zephyr, featuring an arboreal-inspired motif hand-tufted in wool, jute and viscose, and Paradox, a zero pile design hand knotted of 100 percent wool. Several new pillow collections from Olson will also be unveiled.
Market attendees who schedule an appointment with their Surya sales specialist online by Tuesday, Oct. 13 are eligible to receive 10 percent off their market order.
