CALHOUN, Ga. — March 17, 2016 — Marking four decades in the home furnishings industry, Surya is proud to announce the celebration of its 40th anniversary. To commemorate this important milestone, the company will hold a series of events, contests and promotions throughout the year. The anniversary festivities will kick off with a special High Point Market celebration, set to take place in Surya’s flagship showroom (Showplace 4100) on Sunday, April 17 beginning at 6 p.m.

Founded by Surya Tiwari in 1976, Surya got its start as a small maker of hand-knotted rugs with a mission to preserve traditional artisan craft and create a better life for families in rural India. Surya’s son, Satya Tiwari, was appointed president in 2006 and, soon thereafter, engineered an industry-changing strategy to tap the underserved market of independent furniture dealers and interior designers by providing them with an entry into the emerging home accessories category. In the past several years, the company has extended its reach to additional channels, including the contract and outdoor segments.

A forerunner in innovation, Surya has incrementally added new product categories each year since 2010 – expanding from rugs to pillows, throws, wall decor, accent furniture, lighting, decorative accents and bedding – providing retailers and designers with access to 50,000+ coordinating accessories for every lifestyle and price point. This forward thinking approach has been instrumental in Surya’s growth and, today, the company is a recognized leader in the home furnishings industry.

“We want to express our deepest gratitude to all of our valued customers who have put their trust in Surya during the past 40 years and continue to inspire us to greater heights,” said Satya Tiwari, president, Surya. “Our customers are the reason we strive to push the boundaries of what’s possible in the home decor market, and we never take them for granted. We know we must earn their business each and every day through hard work, determination and a passionate commitment to help them succeed – that’s what drives us. We can’t wait to see what the next 40 years will bring.”

With more than 15,000 customers, Surya continues to achieve significant double-digit digit revenue growth, reaching $100 million in sales in 2015, and earning a spot on Inc. Magazine’s list of America’s fastest growing privately held companies for the fifth consecutive year. In May, the company will move into a new, one-million-square-foot headquarters and distribution center in Cartersville, Ga. – providing a new home for its 400+ employees and bringing 200 new jobs to north Georgia.

Market attendees are invited to visit Showplace 4100 (open 8 a.m. to 8 p.m. daily, beginning Friday, April 15) to explore Surya’s latest product offerings. Market visitors who schedule an appointment with their Surya sales specialist at by Monday, April 11 are eligible to receive 10 percent off their market order (no minimum).
