At the 2019 Atlanta and Las Vegas summer markets, Kalaty Rug Corporation is introducing new collections in a variety of weaves and constructions while simultaneously adding new designs to some of the company’s existing best-selling hand-knotted collections. Among Kalaty’s summer introductions are heirloom-quality rugs in new abstract patterns featuring intricate carving and/or unique textural effects as well as modern takes on traditional motifs, chic easy-to-live-with transitional styles, plus casual tonal loop-and-pile weaves.
“At summer markets, as with all markets, we anticipate seeing both new and existing customers, dealers and designers at our Atlanta and Las Vegas showrooms,” says Kamran Kalaty, a company spokesman. “Our interactions with market customers are an essential aspect of what we do. The reactions of dealers and designers who attend these important shows continue to help us as we assess current and future rug collections; plus their input is critical to how we develop our various marketing directions.”

“We’re nearly halfway through 2019, and we are already experiencing an excellent year at Kalaty,” says company president Ramin Kalaty. “No doubt, the strong economy is a contributing factor to successful sales in the high-end hand-knotted category. Yet, we are also seeing excellent sales in our more popular-priced K-TWO rugs. If the economy continues in this trend, by year-end, Kalaty will have had one of its best years.”
