DALLAS -- Area rug and home furnishings maker Surya showcased its rugs in-person for the first time since the Covid-19 shutdown at Atlanta and the Dallas Gift and Home markets in August, and despite lower appointments, show attendees were buying area rugs.

"We were pleasantly surprised with strong attendance at Dallas Market and saw a rebound in orders as well," Parvati Tiwari, VP, strategy and Insight, told RugNews.com. "The health and safety measures taken by Dallas Market Center, as well as within our showroom, gave buyers and designers the confidence to shop in person and prepare for the upcoming season.

"We received a very positive response to some of our newest machine-woven collections, including Brunswick and Avant Garde," she added. "Our recently added hand-knotted Nobility collection also did well with designers."
