HIGH POINT – Celebrity designer Candice Olson offered on-trend decorating tips to a full house last week at Surya Inc.’s High Point showroom.

A longtime partner to Surya, with a collection of rugs and accessories, Olson also used the stage to announce the expansion of her line into lighting come October.

“You all know how much I emphasize lighting in my décor ad nauseam,” she said to the crowd, laughing. Olson is based in Toronto and HGTV host of 'Divine Design' and 'Candice Tells All'.

Details about the collection were not shared, but she and company president Satya Tiwari, who introduced her, said the lighting collection is expected to launch at the fall High Point Market, Oct. 14-18.

Olson’s current program with Surya includes a variety of area rugs – from synthetic machine-mades to natural fiber hand-crafted styles – as well as a range of decorative pillows.
