  Surya's Tessera rug (TSE-1000) was among the winning rug designs recognized at the 2017 America’s Magnificent Carpet Awards gala, held on Friday, Jan. 13 in Atlanta. The rug, which took top honors in the $200 and under machine made category, features an updated traditional design and bold color palette.
