SURYA TO DEBUT RUG LINE BY NORTH CAROLINA LANDSCAPE ARTIST WILLIAM MANGUM 3.17.15
Surya will launch at April’s High Point Market three rug collections from William Mangum, a nationally- and internationally-acclaimed artist who – for more than 35 years – has captured in his paintings the essence of the American landscape.
From the aura and textures of the Blue Ridge Mountains to sparkling, windswept shorelines, Mangum’s rug designs artfully infuse elements of the natural world into living spaces to create inspired tapestries that celebrate the lives of the inhabitants.
The collections, which take their cues from the diverse regions in Mangum’s native North Carolina, include:
Artisan – Overscaled fern and pine motifs are brought to life in this outdoor safe collection of hand-hooked rugs featuring tonal hues in a natural palette.
Essential – Hand-woven jute and colors of earth blend harmoniously in this textural collection, echoing the rugged beauty of the ever-changing landscape.
Remarque – Impressions of sand and water kissed by dappled sunlight evoke a sense of gentle movement in this collection of hand-tufted wool rugs with viscose accents.
“My goal as an artist is help people to become astute observers of the world around them, to encourage them to pause and appreciate nature’s inherent ability to shape our mood and comfort levels,” said William Mangum, artist. “With these new rug collections for Surya, I wanted to provide an accessible way for people to bring the beauty of the outdoors into their home environments while also complementing the latest home decor and fashion trends. The Surya team has been a great partner in translating my artistic vision into timeless, handcrafted rugs that provide the perfect canvas upon which individuals can express their unique style.”
“As a lifelong student of nature, Bill Mangum possesses the rare ability to see beyond the surface of the landscape to capture its intrinsic beauty in a way that really speaks to the viewer,” said Satya Tiwari, president, Surya. “Likewise, at Surya, we are always looking beyond what has been done before to find new and different ways to bring inspired design into the home. Working with Bill is a natural fit as we continue to expand our product portfolio to reflect diverse styles and themes, and we are excited to share these new collections with our customers.”
Market attendees are invited to explore William Mangum’s rug collections
at Surya’s flagship showroom – Showplace 4100
– which will be open daily from 8 a.m. to 8 p.m. Surya is also hosting several educational and social events and will serve a complimentary catered breakfast and lunch each day, along with hors d’oeuvres and cocktails each evening.
