CALHOUN, Ga.–Surya will debut its latest licensed collection at the upcoming High Point Market with Kate Spain, who is known for her bold colors and motifs with a hand-drawn aesthetic. The collection will include area rugs and coordinating pillows. At market, Spain will share her inspirations as the featured designer of Surya’s Designer Spotlight, scheduled for Sunday, Apr. 21, at 2 p.m. in the company’s Showplace showroom, space 4100.
For this launch, Spain’s designs will incorporate a range of global influences. “The intrinsic nature of this collection is new, organic forms—spun from vibrant ancient cultures and places,” said Spain. “The designs in the Alhambra handtufted and Marseille flat-weave collections take inspiration from a variety of different sources. Some of the designs evolved from my pottery work in Spanish majolica and a love for ceramic tiles patterns from both the old and new worlds. Other pieces were born from the explosive colors and ikat patterns found in the vibrant woven arts of the Central Andes.”
Satya Tiwari, president, Surya, added, “Kate Spain’s new collection harmoniously blends the serenity of nature with the bold colors and patterns of diverse global cultures. She delivers a uniquely modern sensibility to the range, with a show-stopping palette that I know our retailers and the design community will love.”
