Molly Brown House Gets New Karastan Kirman

The Molly Brown House in Denver, Colorado is getting an updated rug on the main staircase. The house belonged to Molly Brown, who was a survivor of the Titanic crash, as well as a philanthropist and stage actress. It was built in 1889 and has served many different purposes since Brown's death in 1932. It has been a rental property, a gentleman's boarding house and a home for wayward girls, but is now used as a museum.

In 1970, when it was finally turned into a museum, the Historic Denver society installed karastan carpets from the first to the third floor as well as on the second floor hallway. With over 1 million visitors since the 1970's, the Karastan 717 Multicolor panel Kirman in place is finally in need of replacement. They are replacing it with the same type of rug due to the great durability and the use of over 50 colors in the rug.
