New Elan Collection from Karastan Embodies Casual Elegance

DALTON, GA, March 26, 2012—Karastan’s new Elan Collection creates the feel of casual elegance by combining traditional and modern motifs in today’s calm colors.

Elan rugs pull a room together with a subtle sophistication in soothing shades of ivory, henna and robin’s egg. This collection often mixes traditional and contemporary elements as well as motifs from different cultures such as combining a Chinese fret border with an ornate damask.

All are woven of premium fully worsted New Zealand wool in the U.S.A. on Wilton (Van de Wiele) looms, combining Karastan style with the durability and easy maintenance of renewably resourced wool.

The Elan Collection offers:

  • Worcester Beige: Karastan modernizes a traditional ogee pattern with contemporary elements and a soft palette (ivory with accents in henna and robin’s egg).
  • Shelley: A beautiful damask is given a distressed and aged appearance and is uniquely combined with a traditional Chinese fret border. Available in Henna, Ivory and Robin’s Egg.
  • Shropshire: An unusual layout of top and bottom borders set off this traditional Persian design. Available in Henna, Ivory and Robin’s Egg.
  • Savoy: An ornamental linking pattern overlays a tonal ikat patchwork for a modern look. Available in Ivory and Robin’s Egg.

Elan rugs are available in 2'5" x 4', 2'5" x 12', 3'3" x 5'6", 5'3" x 8'3", 8' x 10', 8'6" x 11'6" and 9'6" x 13'2". Retail price for a 5'3" x 8'3" is $699.
