Signature style does not manifest overnight. It takes years of creative development, collaboration and refinement to arrive at the themes, motifs and palettes that eventually become hallmarks.

It is with pleasure that announces that Surya’s new collections of area rugs, designed by Malene B, will be available online. These beautiful area rugs will be displayed with the rugs of Surya’s other skilled designers.Surya Rugs has made an effort, throughout the years, to obtain the best designers for their top quality area rugs. Though they create many of their own designs, Surya has made it a point to work with external talent saying: “Signature style does not manifest overnight. It takes years of creative development, collaboration and refinement to arrive at the themes, motifs and palettes that eventually become hallmarks.” This year, Malene B joins designers like Jill Rosenwald and Candice Olson in designing for Surya. Each of these designers has a significantly different focus and aesthetic but each has met with success in the world of interior design.

Surya partnered with Jill Rosenwald, a popular, ceramic designer based out of Massachusetts, to produce area rugs with her “stylish sensibility.” Rosenwald uses bright colors and repetitive patterns throughout her designs. She has developed many rugs for Surya including the Fallon Collection and Zuna Collection. Though both collections make use of simple patterns, they exude sophistication through the beautiful materials and color palettes. The Fallon Collection has a flat weave construction, while the Zuna Collection is hand tufted. Both lines are 100% wool rugs.

Possibly the most well-known of these designers is Divine Design’s Candice Olson of Toronto. Her charm and contemporary design expertise have gathered a large following. She has worked on several collections of area rugs with Surya, including her more popular collections, Modern Classics and Sculpture. The rugs in the Modern Classics Collection often have a calm, flowing, visual approach to them; while the Sculpture Collection is completely reliant upon the technique of surface carving to expose the graceful designs in the luxurious materials.

One of the newest additions to this elite group of designers is Malene B, based out of Brooklyn, NY. Surya announced their partnership with her in the beginning of 2013. Malene B derives her aesthetic from her passion for travel and exploration into the global culture. Voyages and Destinations are her first two collections of area rugs created in collaboration with Surya. In the Destinations Collection, Malene references different urban images and uses playful color to recognize the meeting of different cultures with globalization. The Voyages Collection incorporates an angular design which creates a playful prism effect. Voyages and Destinations are flat weave and hand tufted respectively. Both collections are 100% wool rugs.

Though each of these designers has a unique and diverse background, they have found a home for their designs with Surya Rugs. is excited to promote the newly inspired designs of Malene B next to the established creations of Jill Rosenwald and Candice Olson.
