FORT LEE, N.J. - Area rugs and carpet manufacturer Couristan said it has signed a licensing agreement with Emma Gardner Design.
Couristan said it will manufacture hand-tufted, power loomed and outdoor/indoor performance area rugs as well as wall-to wall carpeting for residential and hospitality markets under the color and design guidance of Emma Gardner, principal and chief creative officer for the Emma Gardner Design and Emma at Home brands.
The series is expected to debut in department and specialty stores in the spring.
"Emma's design approach, celebrated sense of color and unique ability to translate both elements into works of art for the floor will allow us to appeal to a wider range of value-conscious consumers who are inspired by signature looks," said Ron Couri, president and CEO of Couristan.
