KAS Rugs to Partner with Libby Langdon
June 8, 2017,
NEW YORK – Renowned designer Libby Langdon will design a new assortment of rugs and pillows for KAS in her latest licensed partnership. A manufacturer of handmade and machine-made rugs, pillows and poufs, KAS will work with Langdon to offer her own flavor of indoor/outdoor rugs.
The company will provide its dealers with the Libby Langdon Rug Collection for distribution across the U.S., Canada and beyond. The new Libby Collections are slated to launch at High Point Market in October 2017.
“It’s exciting to partner with a company that’s not currently selling the design direction I’m bringing,” Langdon said. “What makes it valuable is when you introduce new looks that open sales to a new audience and give their existing buyers another style to choose from.”
Her KAS assortment of rugs will feature indoor and outdoor collections with multiple patterns and colorways, along with a collection of artisan throw pillows.
“We knew if we wanted to get into another design partnership, we wanted to work with a high energy, successful, hands-on, experienced designer, and we believe we found that in Libby,” said Santhi Yarlagadda of KAS. “When we met Libby, I knew we were onto something good; her style direction, ideas and energy are infectious. We are eager to put her creative insights and designs into production as she will help broaden our assortment and dealer base.”
Langdon is an interior designer, author, product designer and makeover television personality, as well as the creative force behind New York City-based design firm, Libby Interiors, Inc. She is fast becoming known for her growing collections of branded home furnishings collections for Braxton Culler, Crystorama, Bradburn Gallery, outdoor furniture for North Cape and most recently rugs for KAS.
For over 35 years, KAS has been one of the industry’s leading suppliers of innovative and fashion-forward rugs. The company started as a small importer selling Indian Dhurries and quickly became known as a forerunner in color and design trends. Being a family business, it has always retained a small company atmosphere while continually building its infrastructure to support its expanding customer base.
