Earlier this month, Karastan boldly unveiled its limited edition Panel Kirman Granite rug design inside the Karastan showroom of Atlanta’s AmericasMart during the opening day of January’s International Area Rug Market. A reimagined creation of our most popular rug ever made, the illustrious Multi Panel Kirman, the limited edition rug has been recolored with the millennial buyer in mind.
While the original Multi Panel Kirman that debuted in 1937 featured 53 mesmerizing bold colors, the refreshed masterpiece offers a more muted palette of greys, creams, tans and bronze, accented by citron and French blue. With only 250 of these limited edition works of art in existence, each is sure to become a treasured collection piece.
Here’s a more in-depth look at the inspiration and creative process behind the recreation of the legendary Multi Panel Kirman, as told by Tracy Pruitt, Karastan’s Vice President of Design.
