Safavieh outdoor rugs furnish new Delta Sky Deck at JFK Airport

Port Washington, NY - High-end area rug and home accessories house Safavieh has created custom collection of outdoor rugs for Delta to be featured in the airline company's new Sky Deck at Delta Sky Club at New York City's John F. Kennedy Airport.

This first-ever outdoor airport terrace for Delta opened its doors on May 24 as part of the airline's $1.2 billion expansion in Terminal 4 of the airport.

A second Sky Deck at Delta Sky Club is scheduled to open at Hartsfield-Jackson Atlanta International Airport on June 10, and will also feature custom outdoor rugs by Safavieh.

This special program is part of Delta Air Lines' partnership with Architectural Digest and interior designer Thom Filicia, who was charged with developing the decks as distinctive spaces that would be extensions of the Delta Sky Clubs.

For the effort, Safavieh created two 9'-by-25' custom outdoor rugs to be included in the 2,000-square-foot JFK Sky Deck, and two additional rugs measuring 10'-by-11' and 9'-by-17'5" for the Atlanta airport. Made in Turkey, the rugs are commercially rated adaptations of Filicia's residential outdoor Chatham rug for Safavieh Couture in Indian Red.

"We are honored that our rugs are featured in Thom Filicia's design for the new Delta Sky Decks," said Arash Yaraghi, Safavieh principal. "And we are proud to be in the company of the other beautiful furnishings Thom specified for the project. Not only do Delta's outdoor terraces enhance the luxury travel experience, they are in synch with the growing demand by consumers for elegant outdoor spaces in their own homes."
