As part of Delta's $1.2 billion expansion at JFK's new Terminal 4, it partnered with Architectural Digest and interior designer Thom Filicia to develop the deck, which serves as an extension of the Delta Sky Club.
Safavieh created two 9x25 custom outdoor rugs for the Sky Deck. Made in Turkey, the rugs are commercially rated adaptations of Filicia's residential outdoor Chatham rug for Safavieh Couture in Indian Red.
"We are honored that our rugs are featured in Thom Filicia's design for the new Delta Sky Decks," said Arash Yaraghi, Safavieh principal. "And we are proud to be in the company of the other beautiful furnishings Thom specified for the project. Not only do Delta's outdoor terraces enhance the luxury travel experience, they are in synch with the growing demand by consumers for elegant outdoor spaces in their own homes."
Jonathan Yaraghi, director of wholesale furnishings for Safavieh, attended a preview of the Sky Deck at JFK prior to its opening.
"It's a one-of-a-kind travel experience: St. Tropez meets JFK," he said. "You are in a luxurious lounge three stories above the runway watching planes take off and land. And at the same time you're taking in the sun and incredible views of the Manhattan skyline."
A second Sky Deck at Delta Sky Club is scheduled to open at Hartsfield-Jackson Atlanta International Airport on June 10. For the Atlanta Sky Deck, Safavieh will include a pair of custom rugs measuring 10x11 and 9x18.
