Surya’s Tessera rug (TSE-1000) was one among the many winners recognized at the 2017 America’s Magnificent Carpet Awards gala, held on January 13 in Atlanta. Featuring an updated traditional design and bold color palette, the Tessera rug took home top honors in the $200 and under machine made category.
Held each year during the Atlanta International Area Rug Market, America’s Magnificent Carpet Awards honor the year’s best new designs and constructions from the nation’s leading rug manufacturers.
Resembling a zero pile hand-knotted rug, Tessera – constructed of polypropylene and cotton – artfully merges freshly interpreted traditional and mosaic tile designs with bright, multi-color hues and a relaxed hand for a vivid vintage look. The bold, fresh color palette includes teal, garnet, dark blue, light gray, burnt orange and black.
“We are honored to have been selected for this prestigious award,” said Satya Tiwari, president, Surya. “Our product development team works each season to create new designs that are ever more relevant and accessible to today’s consumers. Our goal with the Tessera collection and other recent machine made collections is to put great design within reach of everyone and allow people with more limited design budgets to express themselves with color. We wanted to design rugs that have a traditional feel but update them to be more daring and fun.”
the Tessera rug, along with all of Surya’s latest product introductions can be viewed at the Atlanta Market, Dallas Market, and Las Vegas Market.
