CALHOUN, Ga. — April 7, 2016 —To commemorate 40 fabulous years in the home furnishings industry, Surya will run a special Instagram contest during High Point Market. Market attendees are encouraged to visit the Surya showroom, snap a photo of their favorite accessory, describe what makes the product a style standout, and post the image to Instagram using hashtag #suryaFAB40 for the chance to win the product they photographed.

Over the past four decades, Surya has evolved from a small supplier of hand-crafted rugs to a provider of more than 50,000 home accessories in product categories that include accent furniture, art, bedding, decorative accents, lighting, mirrors, pillows, poufs, rugs and throws.

“We’ve come such a long way from the time when my father started Surya with humble aspirations to bring beautiful, artisan rugs to the United States,” said Satya Tiwari, president, Surya. “Today, we offer designers and retailers an expansive range of product options in a myriad of colors, styles and price points, making it easy for them to help their customers create effortlessly coordinated looks for any decor preference and budget. Home decor is all about self-expression and putting a personal stamp on a space, and we’re excited to see which Surya accessories market attendees choose as their favorites.”

To enter the contest, participants simply need to:

  • VISIT the Surya showroom at Showplace 4100
  • POST to Instagram a photo of their favorite non-rug Surya accessory priced at $400 or less
  • STATE why they love the selected accessory
  • TAG #suryaFAB40 and mention @suryasocial

Three winners will be chosen randomly at the conclusion of market and will be notified via Instagram.
There is a limit of one entry per Instagram account. Instagram users agree to allow Surya to use their photo as it pertains to the #suryaFAB40 contest. The selected accessory must have a wholesale value of $400 or less. The contest begins on Friday, April 15 at 8 a.m. ET and closes on Wednesday, April 20 at 5 p.m. ET.

Surya’s showroom will be open daily from 8 a.m. to 8 p.m. during market, beginning Friday, April 15. A complimentary hot catered breakfast and lunch will be served each day, along with hors d’oeuvres and cocktails each evening.
