CALHOUN, Ga. — Oct. 1, 2015 — Surya will introduce at High Point Market a new line of rugs for emma at home™, the lifestyle brand created by designer Emma Gardner to bring her signature look to a larger audience. The new collections include micro-loop and loop-and-pile constructions in a range of fresh, unexpected palettes and energetic motifs that convey a contemporary, forward looking aesthetic well-suited to a variety of lifestyles.

Designs to be launched at market include an overscaled floral motif in a micro-loop construction; a figurative loop-and-pile design based on traditional Asian art; a crisp, bold geometric look with a retro feel; and a hexagonal motif overlaid on a circular pattern in a loop-and-pile construction for rich dimensionality.

“The inspiration for this first collection for Surya came mostly from nature and its myriad structures and colors, with a nod toward design for design’s sake,” said Emma C. Gardner, chief designer and principal, emma at home™. “We chose Surya because it has fun, design forward products that have earned a loyal following and enabled the brand to build a distinguished presence in the marketplace. We are excited to work with Surya’s excellent sourcing, sales and product development teams to make emma at home™ designs, and a whole new range of products, accessible to our broadest market yet.”

An award-winning designer known for her unique color pairings and design sensibility, Gardner has been creating products for the home since 2002. Born in Kyoto, Japan and growing up in Connecticut and New York City, her design influences include nature, fashion, literature, architecture, art and color itself.

“Emma Gardner’s eye-catching creations are refreshing and bright, easy to work with and really capture the imagination,” said Satya Tiwari, president, Surya. “With these new collections, we are able to offer our designer and retailer customers inspired new design options perfect for creating uplifting, modern living environments for the trend forward consumer."

Surya also plans to showcase at market a collection of complementary pillows and throws from the designer.

Market attendees are invited to view the new collections at High Point Market – Showplace 4100 – from 8 a.m. to 8 p.m. daily. Surya will serve a complimentary hot catered breakfast and lunch each day, along with hors d’oeuvres and cocktails each evening.
