Home accessory solutions brand, Surya reported that it was recently honored at the 2013 America’s Magnificent Carpet Awards with two recognitions for excellence in rug design. Produced by AmericasMart® Atlanta, in conjunction with partners Sandow Media (parent of Home Accents Today) and the Oriental Rug Importers Association, the gala event honors the top rug introductions for the year. Held each year during the International Atlanta Area Rug Market, these prestigious awards allow market visitors to explore the Museum of New Introductions, a gallery of the best new designs and constructions from the nation’s top rug manufacturers.
The annual ceremony, presented at the Georgia Aquarium on the evening of Friday, January 11th, honored two of Surya’s more recent design introductions. In the category of Hand-Loomed, Hand-Tufted / Suggested Retail of $8.01-$16.00 per Square Foot, the brand was recognized for BAN-3326 from the Banshee Collection. With its luxurious hand and deconstructed scrollwork motif, the transitional design was noted by judge and respected interior designer Stan Topol for its intriguing use of negative space. Surya also received nods in the Licensee Design / Any Retail Price category for the graphic FAL-1036 from the Fallon Collection by Jill Rosenwald. Awards judge, celebrity designer Kenneth Brown, commented that the flat-weave’s bold geometric pattern in neutral hues of gray and gold was a “great way to bring pattern into a room.”

Portman, Sr., AmericasMart® Atlanta President and Chief Operating Officer noted that Surya’s “forward-reaching product mix, design aesthetic and marketing indicatives define a company both grounded in tradition and compelled to the future.”
