Playthings Staff -- Furniture Today, October 1, 2013
In celebration of the introduction of hundreds of new products and the launch of new lighting and mirror lines, Surya will host several events at its Showplace 4100 showroom during this fall's High Point Market.
Surya's event lineup kicks off on Saturday afternoon with a special presentation by Candice Olson followed by a party on Sunday evening celebrating the debut of the Calhoun, Ga.-based company's fall collections.
"We are focused on bringing to retailers, designers and, ultimately, the end consumer, the most up to date and on-trend products across all price points," said Satya Tiwari, Surya president. "In the past year alone, we have nearly doubled our rug design offerings while also expanding into several new home accessory categories - including accent furniture, lighting and mirrors. We look forward to unveiling our latest fashion-forward products to market attendees while also providing a place where they can relax and enjoy some downtime amidst busy market schedules."
On Saturday at 2 p.m., Olson will recount several recent home decorating projects and how she applied thoughtful design to transform once ordinary living spaces into rooms that speak of style and sophistication.
"Candice's unique vision and timeless yet modern designs complement our rug and accessories offerings while resonating strongly with our retail and design customers," said Lynne Meredith, vice president of product development, Surya. "We're pleased that we can provide a forum in which market attendees can hear firsthand how Candice translates her exceptional understanding of color and design into beautifully transformed living spaces."
On Sunday at 4 p.m., Surya will host the seminar "Social Media Success in the Home Décor Industry," featuring a panel of industry thought leaders who will discuss the evolving role of social media in the home decor and interior design space. Its fall showroom celebration party will follow at 6 p.m. with the newest styles in home accessories, an open bar, hors d'oeuvres, a DJ and dancing.
On Tuesday, Oct. 22, Surya will host Colormix by Sherwin-Williams, which captures colors that inspire creativity and design in today's world. The four-palette collection provides design professionals with a guide to help them define the moods they want to create and select colors for projects. (0.1 CEU credit)
