Surya’s Tessera rug was among the winning rug designs recognized at the 2017 America’s Magnificent Carpet Awards gala in Atlanta. Held each year during the Atlanta International Area Rug Market, the awards honor the year’s best new designs and constructions from the nation’s leading rug manufacturers.
The rug, which took top honors in the $200 and under machine-made category, features “an updated traditional design and bold color palette,” the company states. The color palette includes teal, garnet, dark blue, light gray, burnt orange, and black.
“Resembling a zero-pile, hand-knotted rug, Tessera—constructed of polypropylene and cotton—artfully merges freshly interpreted traditional and mosaic tile designs with bright, multicolor hues and a relaxed hand for a vivid vintage look.”
“We are honored to have been selected for this prestigious award,” says Satya Tiwari, president of Surya.
“Our product development team works each season to create new designs that are ever more relevant and accessible to today’s consumers. Our goal with the Tessera collection and other recent machine-made collections is to put great design within reach of everyone and allow people with more limited design budgets to express themselves with color. We wanted to design rugs that have a traditional feel but update them to be more daring and fun.”
