Home News Karastan collaborates with Netflix TV star

Bobby BerkCalhoun, Ga.𑁋Bobby Berk, celebrated designer and Emmy-nominated host of Netflix’s “Queer Eye,” is collaborating with Karastan to create a new rug collection. The new line will be featured at the grand opening of the Karastan showroom at High Point Market in October.

“Bobby brings a wealth of knowledge, creativity and a fresh market perspective to one of the most trusted and respected brands in the industry,” said Rocky Casteel, president of Mohawk Home. “Working with him has been a pleasure. We are so excited to see his collection come to life and discover how it inspires people in their own design journeys.”

Berk expressed his excitement about the partnership. “As a designer who creates spaces for living, it was no question that partnering with Karastan was an ideal collaboration for me,” he said. “Rugs are the foundation of a space. With this collection, I want to bring the consumer timeless, fresh, easy and approachable pieces that can work in any space or style. This was an opportunity to create styles for a variety of customers to meet their home décor desires.”

The Bobby Berk collection features several styles and constructions and will range from woven rugs made of soft, renewably resourced SmartStrand and rugs crafted of Permastrand to imported rugs. “Bringing my customers happiness in a space they create is something I can now share with Karastan,” Berk said. “The rugs are pieces that I have designed knowing that I would put them in my own home. They will keep you and your space grounded.”

Bart Hill, senior vice president of product and operations, Mohawk Home, said the company is looking forward to showcasing its new product collaborations with influential designers such as Bobby Berk. “We are thrilled to welcome everyone attending High Point Market to our Karastan showroom to see the latest and greatest from Karastan and Mohawk Home.”

In addition to the collaboration with Berk, Karastan also recently teamed up with Stacy Garcia on a co-branded rug line that will make its debut at Nebraska Furniture Mart.
