Karastan 2011 Tufted Introductions: Natural Beauty with Complex Constructions

DALTON, GA, March 9, 2011: Karastan’s 2011 tufted broadloom introductions take the dramatic shades of nature and put them in complex constructions that offer abundant decorating options: from subtle textures and classic plaids to casual pebbles and exotic fretwork patterns.

Wear-Dated Kashmere

  • Boston Commons. Karastan’s precise level cut loop technology combines with soft Wear-Dated Kashmere nylon fiber to create the distinctive Boston Commons. This classic diamond plaid adds ambiance to both traditional and transitional interiors.  A color palette of 22 neutrals completes this elegant look.
  • Chic Luxury. Chic Luxury is a level cut loop pattern that is both wild and contained; unstructured vertical and horizontal lines crisscross each other in a magnified loose weave effect. Contemporary neutrals and mid-century modern shades comprise this extensive palette of 22 colors. Crafted of Wear-Dated Kashmere nylon fiber, Chic Luxury is a picture of soft modern styling.
  • Newport Grande. Thick and thin cabled yarns combine to create a texture reminiscent of a shearling coat in Newport Grande. Its 21 subtle eco-shades work well in casual interiors and multi-functional spaces where neutrals are always part of the equation. Made of cozy and soft Wear-Dated Kashmere fiber, Newport Grande grounds calm, serene interiors that are timeless and practical.

Crafted of 100% Stainmaster Luxurell, it offers contemporary texture in 40 moody, subdued and sophisticated colors.
