Surya, Designer Malene B Partner for RugsJanuary 2, 2013
Known for her globally inspired aesthetic, Malene B. has gained a strong following in recent years within the design community for her thoughtfully designed custom rugs.
Her passion for world travel and cultural exploration are reflected in Voyages and Destinations, two broad new ranges of flat-weave and hand-tufted area rugs that bring her signature style to the consumer. From the rice paddies of Bali to Carnival celebrations in the Caribbean, the spirited collections transport home decor to faraway places with their globally inspired motifs, unique textures and rich palettes.
“Malene B brings an entirely new aesthetic to the Surya brand with her globally inspired design perspective and playful sense of color,” said Calhoun, Ga.-based Surya's president, Satya Tiwari. "Her designs tap into the growing convergence between distinct cultural styles–which I believe will resonate strongly with our retail partners and consumers."
The collections will make their debut during the Jan. 9-16 Atlanta International Gift & Home Furnishings Market. Surya will co-host an event with Malene B in the home accessory brand’s new showroom, 11-A-1, where she will share her style inspirations with retailers and designers. The catered event begins Thursday, Jan. 10 at 2 p.m. Surya customers, media and all Market visitors are invited to attend.
