Surya won the America’s Magnificent Carpet Award for the second consecutive year this past Thursday during the Atlanta International Gift and Home Furnishings Market. The Harput rug (HAP-1044) triumphed in the $200 and under machine-made category and features a traditional center medallion design with an updated, vibrant color palette.
The America’s Magnificent Carpet Awards are held annually during the winter Atlanta Gift and Home Furnishings Market in an effort to recognize the year’s elite new designs and constructions from the country’s leading rug manufacturers. Before the ceremony, market attendees were able to preview all the entries displayed in the Museum of Introductions Gallery, located in AmericasMart Building 1.
The updated traditional Harput collection comprises 72 machine made rugs that encompass the full spectrum of colors in a variety of vibrancies and designs, including traditional center medallions, modern abstracts, paisley, damask, and bordered patterns. The winning Harput rug is machine made with polypropylene fibers in a high pile, center medallion design. The mesmerizing display of color has a kaleidoscope effect, including varying shades of garnet, burnt orange, saffron, dark blue, teal, white, and light gray.
“We could not be more excited to accept this award for a second year,” says Satya Tiwari, president of Surya. “The Harput collection had a phenomenal year in sales as well as media buzz, which is a testament to our product development team’s ability to identify the styles and trends that will be successful for Surya and, more importantly, our customers. This also emphasizes the importance of providing high quality at an affordable price point, which is exactly what the Harput collection represents. Thank you to the judges and AmericasMart. Our team will carry the momentum of this win through the rest of 2018.”
Market attendees are invited to view the winning Harput rug and expanded collection, along with all of Surya’s latest product introductions, at Atlanta Market (11-A-1) and Dallas Market (WTC 560) from 8 a.m. to 8 p.m. daily. Surya will serve a complimentary hot catered breakfast and lunch each day, along with hors d’oeuvres and cocktails each evening.
