Karastan Rugs Inspire Designers
on HGTV Design Star

DALTON, GA, June 22, 2012—Three Karastan rugs were selected by the creative finalists for season seven of HGTV Design Star, the top-rated reality series in which 12 competitive interior designers, contractors, stylists and artists bring their most ingenious ideas to make over challenging spaces.

In HGTV Design Star, HGTV judges Genevieve Gorder and Vern Yip are joined by a different celebrity judge each week. They decide who stays and goes home, plus fans can vote online for their favorite designer. The winning designer will land his or her own show on HGTV.

“Seeing young designers discover Karastan products is exciting,” said Steve Roan, vice president of Karastan Rugs. “This show is about being inventive, having an eye for good design and creating an inviting and livable space. Those are all the energies that Karastan brings to each of its rugs.”

Dechy Taupe is one of the clean lined-geometrics, painterly abstracts and mid-century modern designs that make up Karastan’s fashion-forward Artois Collection. It is woven on Wilton looms in the U.S.A. of premium quality nylon yarn.

Mystical Zebra is a nature-inspired pattern in dark chocolate on a field of cream. It is made of tough Karalon nylon.

Bristol Lane Gray is a Regency-inspired fret pattern that is both modern and elegant. Part of Karastan’s Carmel Collection, it features octagonal medallions in caramel, ivory and beige on a gray field. It is woven on Wilton looms in the U.S.A. of premium quality nylon yarn.
