America’s Magnificent Carpet Awards is equivalent of Hollywood Oscar awards for the Area Rugs Industry and is sponsored by Architectural Digest magazine and hosted by both Architectural Digest and AmericasMart Atlanta.
The awards were presented to Karastan representatives at a ceremony held at the Marriott Marquis Hotel in Atlanta, GA.

Judges representing museum curators, designers and retailers chose the winning rugs in several categories based on design, construction, salability and value.

“Our design, development and manufacturing team has once again produced outstanding results,” says Anne Carley, Director of Marketing for Karastan rugs. “Most significant is the artistic use of color in both rugs. The meticulously placement of multiple hues gives textural depth to the intense, Prussian blue field of

Eastport. A mélange of colors also creates the striated underlay of French Quarter, which is topped with an ornamental design inspired by the hand-forged ironworks of New Orleans.”

What seem to extremely impress retailers visiting Karastan’s showroom is the handmade appearance and natural beauty of Karastan rugs. This year’s winning rugs are both woven of 100% premium New Zealand wool (worsted) and always hot sellers at arearugsclub.com.
