Home News Karastan to expand, remodel AmericasMart showroom

Atlanta—Karastan will expand and remodel its AmericasMart flagship showroom to showcase a broader, deeper product mix in preparation for the Jan. 10-13 Atlanta International Area Rug Market featuring the National Oriental Rug Show (NORS), Jan. 11-13.

The expansion will give Karastan, the long-time premier manufacturer of machine-made area rugs, more than 7,000 square feet of space in its existing location on Floor 3 of Building 1. The new space will fully support several new line extensions.

“We are very happy about Karastan’s new commitment to AmericasMart,” says Kevin Malkiewicz, AmericasMart vice president of leasing. “This expansion underscores the fact that we have the number one area rug market in the country.”

The move positions Karastan to better showcase its growing product line to an even broader base of customers.

“Our goal is to always provide a stylish, functional and elegant backdrop for Karastan’s wide array of product offerings,” says Brandon Culpepper, vice president of specialty sales. “Our expansion plan is key to presenting our newest products in a comfortable and inviting environment, and as always the new showroom will capture the sophistication and style of the Karastan brand.”

The new showroom is one of the anchors in the nation’s preeminent rug market and one of the reasons buyers from around the world consider Atlanta a must-attend event to see the latest introductions.

“Karastan is located in one of the premier home furnishings markets in the country and the newly renovated showroom will help us better serve this significant market, while at the same time we will continue to focus on the things that have brought us such tremendous success and take our business to new levels,” says Culpepper.

The event schedule is as follows: The Atlanta International Gift & Home Furnishings Market – Permanent Showrooms: January 9-16; Temporaries: January 11-15; The Atlanta International Area Rug Market: January 10-13; Area Rug Temporaries: Jan. 11-13. A complete list of Market seminars and events is available at www.AmericasMart.com.
