Kalaty Introduces Newport Mansions Collection

Kalaty Rug Corporation has announced that the company has teamed with the Preservation Society of Newport County in the creation of a new collection of area rugs, the Newport Mansions Collection, based on designs from the grand historic homes of Newport, Rhode Island. The mansions of Newport, Rhode Island, are iconic American summer homes and estates built by some of the country’s wealthiest industrialist families in the late 19th and early 20th centuries. It is often said that the time and money spent in the creation of these homes will likely never again be duplicated. Eight hand-tufted rugs made of 100% premium wool featuring a luxurious dense weave comprise the initial launch presentation of the Newport Mansions Collection. “We were given access to a treasure trove of design elements to draw from—rugs, furniture, fabrics, wall coverings, ceiling designs and hundreds of other elements,” says Mike Kalaty, a company spokesperson. “Although our Newport Mansions rug designs are inspired by the decorative history of these glorious estates, we feel we have captured patterns, motifs and colors that are relevant to today’s homes and lifestyles.” Kalaty Rugs is a member of the...

Kalaty Goes Solar At Corporate Warehouse

Kalaty Rug Corporation announces that it has added an eco-friendly solar electrical system to its Hicksville, NY, headquarters and warehouse. “We feel a responsibility to reduce our carbon footprint as a business. After careful study and consideration, we have invested in a photovoltaic solar electrical system to power our warehouse,” says company spokesman Farshad Kalaty. Kalaty is a member of the ORIA. “We feel it is important to do our part for the environment. With this new solar electrical system in place, we are dramatically reducing the amount of ‘off-the-grid’ electrical energy we consume each year. For example, over the course of one year, this photovoltaic system saves the equivalent in harmful emissions of driving 72,500 miles in the average car and 2,204,000 miles in emissions over the course of 30 years,” Kalaty adds. “Or, you could look at the system as the energy equivalent of planting 825 trees per year or 25,080 trees over the life of the system.” Kalaty Rug Corporation goes to great lengths to ensure that its products, manufacturing and warehousing methods conform to current sustainable standards. The area rugs it produces and markets are made solely of natural fibers – fine wools, cotton and bamboo silk. With their recently introduced paperless invoicing option for customers and the new solar electrical system at its warehouse headquarters, the company has taken its green message to the next...
