New Broadloom Series Features Contemporary Compositions,
The Metropolitan Collection, Karastan’s new revved-up range of 18 broadloom designs, is making its debut. The series reflects the luxury brand’s dedication to artistry and craftsmanship, adding a chic flair to a flooring genre that is often thought of as a bland, neutralized background for interiors. The style options in this group include sophisticated striations, tonal textures and abstract patterns that live up to their “metropolitan” name and offer a contemporary yet classic look for any décor.
Linear looks are perfect for livening up a living space with subtle sophistication, and Karastan is offering four new stria styles that achieve this effect. Chic Vibe, available in 18 color variations, features striking stripes that effortlessly exude a haute and hip attitude.
