The rug, which took top honors in the licensee category, features an overscaled floral design and was created in partnership with Belgian lifestyle brand Papilio.

Held each year during the Atlanta International Area Rug Market, America’s Magnificent Carpet Awards honor the year’s best new designs and constructions from the nation’s leading rug manufacturers. Prior to the awards ceremony, market attendees were invited to view all of the entries, which were showcased in the Museum of Introductions Gallery located in AmericasMart Building 1.

Hand knotted of felted wool with a low pile, the Spring Bloom rug is constructed using oversized knots to create an embroidered look with rich texture and dimensionality that also offers softness underfoot. The welcoming color palette includes Rose Quartz, one of Pantone’s Colors of the Year for 2016, along with shades of gold, aubergine and olive – all set against a light gray ground.
