Trends Inspiring Couristan’s 2018 Collections

Published verbatim courtesy of Couristan. 

A report highlighting five key design trends behind the collections.

Inspiration comes from every corner of the world, according to Marlys Giordano, Creative Director at Couristan, the leading importer and manufacturer of fine, quality area rugs and residential broadloom. For 2018, it’s all about incorporating color, global-inspired prints and recycled materials to provide a sense of well-traveled, trend-aligned design for the home.

In the company’s first-ever Trend Report, Giordano identifies five key trends that have inspired many of Couristan’s new area rug collections, introduced at AmericasMart in Atlanta in early January, and further showcased during the Las Vegas Market. Two area rugs inspired by these trends recently received Magnificent Carpet Awards for Best Design in the Hand Knotted/Flat Weave category (Karuna design from the newly introduced Om Collection), as well as the Outdoor category (Toluca in Iris from the Xanadu Collection). [EDITOR’S NOTE: These winning carpets can be seen in the Spring 2018 Issue of RUG INSIDER Magazine.] In addition, variations of these trends will be utilized across a newly developed offshoot – Couristan Rug Studio – set to launch later this year.

“So much of what comes to life through design is reflective of what’s happening across the global community. Individually, the home tends to mirror our personal style, what inspires and shapes us,” noted Giordano. “During times of great uncertainty, people increasingly view their home as a sanctuary; a safe haven from the outside world. As a result, people are putting a lot more time, thought and effort into what goes into their homes – and how it makes them feel; this is what we have looked to infuse throughout our new collections.”
