CALHOUN, Ga.-Surya's Antolya rugs were among the home furnishings items selected to decorate the Mercedes-Benz Star Lounge at New York's Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week, which ended yesterday. The lounge, located backstage at the Lincoln Center for the Performing Arts, hosted a number of notable guests--including Heidi Klum, Lil' Kim and the Jonas Brothers--throughout the week-long fashion event, Surya said.

Designed by the team at Wesley Cadle, Inc., in partnership with Architectural Digest, the lounge mixed glamour and gilded gold. Furnishings included handpainted panels from China, transitional furniture and luxurious accessories, as well as three of Surya's rugs from the Antolya collection, which is handknotted of semi-worsted New Zealand wool in India and has an antique wash that recreates a popular design from medieval-era Persia.

"Rugs by Surya are the finishing touch to the Mercedes-Benz Star Lounge at Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week," said Wesley Cadle, president, Wesley Cadle, Inc. "This aged collection of rugs looks antique even though the rugs are brand new."

"Surya is constantly looking at the latest trends in fashion as a source of inspiration when developing our rug and accessory designs," said Satya Tiwari, president, Surya. "Fashion has always influenced home decor and those worlds are becoming increasingly entwined. We are honored to be a part of Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week and to help bring to life with our Antolya rugs the inspired vision that Wesley Cadle and Architectural Digest created for the Mercedes-Benz Star Lounge."
