CALHOUN, Ga.-Surya received two honors at the 2013 America’s Magnificent Carpet Awards for excellence in rug design.
The company’s BAN-3326 from the Banshee Collection was recognized in the category of handloomed, handtufted/suggested retail of $8.01-$16.00 per square foot. The FAL-1036 from the Fallon Collection by Jill Rosenwald received the nod in the category of licensee design/any retail price.
The awards were given during the recent Atlanta International Area Rug Market at a ceremony at the Georgia Aquarium on Jan. 11. Jeffrey Portman, president and chief operating officer of AmericasMart, where the market took place, said Surya’s “forward-reaching product mix, design esthetic and marketing indicatives define a company both grounded in tradition and compelled to the future.”
