Surya Rugs Featured in Mercedes-Benz Star Lounge
The lounge, located backstage at the Lincoln Center for the Performing Arts, has been hosting a number of notable guests--including Heidi Klum, Lil’ Kim and the Jonas Brothers--throughout the weeklong fashion event.
Designed by the team at Wesley Cadle Inc., in partnership with Architectural Digest, the lounge spotlights a mix of glamour and gilded gold that includes hand painted panels from China, transitional furniture and luxurious accessories. Three of Surya’s rugs from the Antolya Collection are featured in the lounge. Hand knotted in India with semi-worsted New Zealand wool, the antique-wash rugs recreate a popular design from medieval-era Persia.
“Rugs by Surya are the finishing touch to the Mercedes-Benz Star Lounge at Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week,” said Wesley Cadle, president, Wesley Cadle Inc. “This aged collection of rugs looks antique even though the rugs are brand new.”
“Surya is constantly looking at the latest trends in fashion as a source of inspiration when developing our rug and accessory designs,” said Satya Tiwari , president of Surya, Calhoun, Ga. “Fashion has always influenced home decor and those worlds are becoming increasingly entwined. We are honored to be a part of Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week and to help bring to life with our Antolya rugs the inspired vision that Wesley Cadle and Architectural Digest created for the Mercedes-Benz Star Lounge.”
Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week draws hundreds of thousands of fashion fans to New York City each year.
