Surya recently announced an exclusive partnership with Brooklyn, N.Y.-based designer Malene B, known for her globally inspired aesthetic and thoughtfully designed custom rugs.
The designer's passion for world travel and cultural exploration are reflected in Voyages and Destinations, two new ranges of flat-weave and hand-tufted area rugs. According to a release, the collections transport home decor to faraway places with their globally inspired motifs, unique textures and rich palettes -- from the rice paddies of Bali to Carnival celebrations in the Caribbean.
"Malene B brings an entirely new aesthetic to the Surya brand with her globally inspired design perspective and playful sense of color," said Surya President Satya Tiwari. "Her designs tap into the growing convergence between distinct cultural styles, which I believe will resonate strongly with our retail partners and consumers."
During the collections' debut at the winter Atlanta International Gift & Home Furnishings Market, Surya will co-host an event in its expansive new showroom, 11-A-1, where the designer will share her style inspirations. The catered event begins Thurs., Jan. 10, 2013 at 2:00 p.m. Surya customers, media and all market visitors are invited to attend.
