Mary Bledsoe and Mannington Commercial Introduce STYLIST Collection

Mannington Commercial, a leader in commercial floor covering, today announced the launch of the STYLIST collection, a collaboration with Mary Bledsoe of lauckgroup. Inspired by wardrobing in the fashion world, STYLIST is a series of strikingly beautiful patterns and colors, built to let designers create their own stories.

“I think every designer is a stylist at heart,” says Bledsoe. “So we created STYLIST to include products with a large degree of subtlety, and others with a high degree of pattern, as a series of pieces that designers can mix and match to suit their project.”

Available in both modular and broadloom, STYLIST’s products create interest through patterns that move from classic foundational pieces to mid-scale aesthetics to luxurious and bold designs. The family of products use timeless, warm and cool color combinations in neutrals as well as bright fashion hues to complement any space.

The range of textures and patterns can be used to define the different functional areas of a space while keeping a seamless, cohesive aesthetic. The combination of layered foundational and bold patterns and colors, coupled with Mannington’s reputation for durability and performance, makes the new collection especially well-suited for corporate environments.

Mannington Commercial Introduces Against the Grain

At NeoCon 2014, Mannington Commercial invites designers to step into a new direction in 18″x36″ carpet plank, that opens new possibilities for modular installations. Inspired by the bold grains of rough hewn and reclaimed woods, Against the Grain unites four distinctly cut aesthetics that are visually stunning and texturally rich, yet able to play a supporting role in an interior space.

Exploring interpretations of the warm textures and weighty grains of reclaimed wood, the designers used carpet’s unique capabilities to create upscale aesthetics. The collection’s overall tonality ties varied textures and patterns together, creating a differentiated design on the floor. A new palette of long tonal space-dyed nylon creates richness and sophistication in the 15 colors.

Spaces in today’s market are designed with few dividing lines in mind – work, collaboration, and socializing areas are more blurred than ever. Against the Grain leverages this trend through a smart use of texture and pattern, allowing the floor to provide subtle visual cues to the functionality of the space.

The four pattern components can be used individually or in any combination creating a running line program unique to each space. Designed for incredible simplicity of planning and installation, the patterns are truly mix-and-match, creating a random effect that is programmed into the 18”x36” tile format of each product.

Available on rEvolve thermoplastic polyolefin backing, with 0 vinyl, 40% minimum recycled content, 10% post-consumer (NSF/ANSI Certified Platinum). Also available on Infinity RE Modular: 30% minimum recycled content. EPDs are available for both backings.

High performance Ultron 6,6 nylon and Mannington construction unite to create a high performance, high durability, low maintenance carpet, engineered to retain the color and texture that set the collection apart. Colorsafe bleach warranty, Xguard stain warranty, and lifetime backing warranties apply.

The Intersected Collection Reengineers LVT into Graphic Floor Tile

Mannington Commercial, a leader in in commercial floor covering, announced today the launch of Intersected. Working with global design leaders Corgan Associates, Mannington has reengineered LVT as Graphic Floor Tile, a forward-thinking design element crafted specifically for the corporate and retail markets. Uniting the thinking of modular carpet, the distinctive benefits of LVT, and sophisticated visuals – Intersected creates a new, beautiful, toolkit of parts.

LVT is the fastest-growing flooring category in the market today, yet has not been widely used in the corporate market, until now. Intersected brings all of the performance, durability, and low-maintenance benefits of LVT, but with real visual interest for spaces and limitless pattern combinations.

In fact, Intersected is so different from other LVT that Mannington is calling it “Graphic Floor Tile.” Intersected’s high-end, corporate designer-friendly approach to LVT, characterized by a sophisticated, unique texture and interplay of color. Integrated accents give designers the ability to customize with pops of color or subtle tones to create a look that perfectly captures the interconnected nature of today’s workplace.

The collection provides a high performance floor for high traffic commercial applications with a patented wearlayer that eliminates the need for polish and enhances long-term appearance retention reducing the overall total cost of ownership. It has the highest performing wearlayer in the industry, an aluminum oxide topcoat cured by an ultraviolet process that eliminates the need for polish, while enhancing durability, cleanability, appearance retention, and slip retardance.

Intersected has 4% rapidly renewable content. Minimum of 30% and up to 55% recycled content. Mannington has also announced that it is leading the closed loop recycling of post-consumer LVT. An EPD for LVT is available, and the collection is FloorScore certified for IAQ.

Mannington Commercial Creates Design Local, A Collaborative Collection with 18 Designers in Seattle, Nashville, Philadelphia

Mannington Commercial, a leader in flooring for commercial interiors, has joined with teams of architects and interior designers in Seattle, Nashville, and Philadelphia to create a 2014 collection of coordinating carpets, inspired by each city.

Last year, the company created a platform to support local design, inspired by the communities where people live and work every day. Team in four cities created collections in a competition, with a winner selected by tens of thousands of votes cast in open online voting. This year, Mannington pivoted the program so that the output would reflect all of the cities, rather than only one.

“We were so delighted with the four designs generated by our teams last year,” said Natalie Jones, Vice President of Brand Development and Creative Product. “Competitions are great and, as we have seen in years past, can produce amazing creativity in a compressed time frame! But our product portfolio reflects a legacy of collaborating with A+D – so we decided, for this round of to create a single collection of coordinating patterns.”

Effectively, Mannington is working with eighteen interior designers in three cities to create the collection. The designers, often from competing firms, came together in each city for a 24 hour design immersion, beginning with an “inspiration scramble” through the city and then working as a team to create themes and concepts for a modular carpet product. The collection will be unveiled at NeoCon 2014.

“Each designer went out into the city with a camera and a sketchbook, then came back with pattern and color concepts,” said Jones. “We then shared in the product development process together, both during the 24 hour ideation phase and in the weeks that followed. The transparency that this facilitates with our customers is incredible – opening dialogue at every step along the lifecycle of a product, from inspiration, to discussion of use, sustainability, and end-of-life reclamation and recycling.”

Inspired by weathering architecture and the juxtaposition of historic buildings with the randomness of nature, the collection features an intriguing interplay of geometric and organic patterns in the carpet tiles. The richly textured patterns are perfect not only for new corporate construction and renovation, but also for retail, higher education, hospitality and healthcare.

Available on rEvolve thermoplastic polyolefin backing, with 0 vinyl, 40% minimum recycled content, 10% post-consumer (NSF/ANSI Certified Platinum). Also available on Infinity RE Modular: 30% minimum recycled content. EPDs are available for both backings.

6,6 nylon and Mannington construction unite to create a high performance, high durability, low maintenance carpet, engineered to retain the color and texture that set the collection apart. Colorsafe bleach warranty, Xguard stain warranty, and lifetime backing warranties apply.
