HICKSVILLE, N.Y.—In honor of its newest licensed collections—Newport Mansions and Portfolio by Parisa—Kalaty Rug Corporation will host a special event during the Atlanta International Area Rug Market next week. To be held on Thursday, Jan. 10, 2013, from 4-7 p.m., the party will be held in Kalaty’s AmericasMart showroom, 4-G-14, in Building 1 and include cocktails, hors d’oeuvres and live music.
Kalaty launched the Newport Mansions collection this past summer, and representatives from The Preservation Society of Newport County will be present to talk about the historic homes of Newport, R.I., on which the collection is based. Kalaty will also add one additional design to the collection this market, a wool handtufted design called NM-070 in the Newport Latte colorway, inspired by a wallcovering from the Chateau Sur Mer mansion.
Designer Parisa Abdollahi will also be on hand at the event. An interior and architectural designer from Philadelphia, she introduced her collection with Kalaty—her first rug collection—last spring, and new designs and colors have been added since. The collection is based on color and classical architectural inspirations, and is made of wool in a LoriLoom weave.
