Karastan Voted Designers’ Best For ‘07

DALTON, GA, April 20, 2007—Karastan is proudly recognized by House and Garden magazine as a leading source for carpets and rugs in three categories: best wall-to-wall carpet, best range of carpet and rug styles, and best traditional carpets and rugs. The annual survey recognizes the top home product brands as chosen by America’s leading interior designers. The winners make up the virtual “Who’s Who” of the design world and are considered the best-of-the-best in their respective categories.

An unprecedented 20,000 decorators, architects, and kitchen and bath professionals participated in this year’s survey, voting on 14 different categories of products. Among the A-list of designers who took part were: Robert Couturier of Robert Couturier & Associates in New York, NY; Suzanne Kasler of Suzanne Kasler Interiors in Atlanta, GA; and Joe Nye of Joe Nye, Inc. in West Hollywood, CA. 

“The recognition we received from these outstanding designers is the ultimate reward,” says David Duncan, vice president of marketing for Karastan. “It identifies Karastan as a brand driven by exceptional talent and forward thinkers who can anticipate consumers’ buying trends and keep our customers steps ahead of the competition.”

House & Garden featured its Designers’ Best ’07 list in a special section of their March issue. In addition, the complete results are posted on, in a Zagat-style guide that gives luxury consumers exclusive information on the top brands in the world of design.
