It’s been an eventful season at Karastan, as our designers polish the finishing touches on three new rug collections and a flock of fresh Spice Market additions set to be unveiled inside the Karastan Showroom at The Atlanta International Gift & Home Furnishings Market, held July 12-19, 2016 in Atlanta’s AmericasMart. The market routinely hosts over 1,400 unique showrooms and 4,000 temporary exhibits, and the Karastan showroom will undoubtedly be a prime destination for the East Coast’s premiere interior designers, upscale retailers and industry professionals. Later this summer, Karastan will take the show on the road to the West Coast at the biannual Las Vegas Market, held July 31- August 4 on the campus of the World Market Center in the heart of downtown Las Vegas.
Set to debut at this market includes our highly anticipated, contemporary Cosmopolitan and Enigma Collections, the luxuriously transitional Touchstone Collection, and a sensational spread of new styles designed for the highly sought after Spice Market Collection.
Influenced by the glamorous glistens of brushed gold seen heavily in high end jewelry, home accents, furniture and lighting, the Cosmopolitan Collection combines divine dustings of shimmering cream and gold viscose with the velvety texture of Smartstrand Silk. Polished patterns inspired a taste for timeless traditional designs are illuminated by a palette of mineral colors, like jadeite, heathered violet, and cornflower.
Enigma showcases a contemporary collection of abstract, texturally driven designs. Though avant-garde in every aspect, the styles of this collection lend an effortless harmony to other décor elements as a result of their monochromatic aesthetic. Subtly shimmering sprinkles of viscose add a glimpse of glamour to the smooth texture of Karastan’s exclusive triexta Smartstrand Silk yarn.
An eclectic mix of styles from abstract contemporary to re-imagined Persians, Touchstone is a curated collection of new age classics. Shown in sought after shades of indigo, bronze, black and a soft gold, the designs of this collection are transitional and textural. Fused with our exclusive Smartstrand Silk yarn, the styles of the Touchstone Collection offer the same sumptuous softness of silk, coupled with the renowned strain resistance of our Smartstrand fiber.
To date, Spice Market has been one of Karastan’s most successful collection launches, with a wait list long of bestselling styles. With influences from across the globe, each design of the Spice Market collection features original cultural inspired artistry, one-of-a-kind details and a rich palette of sultry hues and deep jewel tones derived from the exotic Mediterranean. Consciously crafted of Karastan’s exclusive Everstrand fiber, a premium polyester produced from up to 100% post-consumer content from plastic bottles, the rugs of the Spice Market Collection offer an irresistible soft touch, inherent stain resistance and vivid color clarity.
All market debuts are expected to be in stock this upcoming fall.
