Surya Takes Rug Award in Atlanta
A rug design from Surya took design honors during the America’s Magnificent Carpet Awards gala in Atlanta.
Spring Bloom, a floral design as the name suggests, took top honors in the licensee category. The overscaled floral design was created in partnership with Papilio, a Belgian lifestyle brand.
Hand knotted of felted wool with a low pile, the Spring Bloom rug is constructed using oversized knots to create an embroidered look with rich texture and dimensionality that also offers softness underfoot. The color palette includes Rose Quartz, one of Pantone’s Colors of the Year for 2016, along with shades of gold, aubergine and olive – all set against a light gray ground.
Held each year during the Atlanta International Area Rug Market, America’s Magnificent Carpet Awards honor the year’s best new designs and constructions from the nation’s leading rug manufacturers. Prior to the awards ceremony, market attendees were invited to view all of the entries, which were showcased in the Museum of Introductions Gallery located in AmericasMart Building 1.
“We are honored to have been selected for this prestigious award,” said Satya Tiwari, Surya president. “Our product development team works each season to incorporate into our line new designs from talented designers and lifestyle brands that complement and broaden our offering through their unique design aesthetic. Papilio shares our focus in creating innovative, trend forward rugs for a broad range of lifestyles and price points, and this recognition is a testament to our winning collaboration.”
