Sugar Valley, Ga. - Upscale area rug designer and manufacturer Karastan is remodeling and expanding its flagship showroom in Atlanta at the AmericasMart.
The company said it needs a larger and updated space "to showcase a broader, deeper product mix" it plans to show during the Atlanta International Area Rug Market, scheduled Jan. 10-13.
With the additional space the company is adopting from an adjacent showroom, Karastan will occupy 7,000 square feet. Karastan is located in the third floor of the Mart's Buidling 1.
"Our goal is to always provide a stylish, functional and elegant backdrop for Karastan's wide array of product offerings," said Brandon Culpepper, vp of specialty sales.
