Mannington Commercial Debuts Design Locale Collection of Modular Carpet

In November of 2014, 6 interior designers from the East Coast, brought together in the Sonoran Desert for a 24 hour inspiration scramble and design immersion. The objective was a collection of modular carpet, drawing upon the stark beauty of the Southwest to create patterns that are beautifully suited for specification in corporate, retail, healthcare, higher education, and hospitality applications.

“The collection was inspired by experiencing, simultaneously, the natural beauty and built environments that bloom in the desert” said Roby Isaac, Director of Product Development. “Unexpected layering of texture and color create an intriguing interplay of patterns, all with the intent to capture what the experience meant for the designers—as well as create a cohesive design statement that emphasizes seamless textural changes.”

The intricate patterns use these gradations of texture and unexpected pops of color, in a 12”x48” modular plank that is designed for easy installation and to perform with high durability and low maintenance.

Antron Lumena premium nylon 6,6, Mannington construction, and Infinity RE modular backing unite to create a high performance, high durability, low maintenance carpet, engineered to retain the color and texture that set the collection apart. Infinity Modular backing, NSF/ANSI-140 Gold certified or on rEvolve®, Mannington’s thermoplastic polyolefin modular backing system, which contains 40% recycled content (10% post consumer). certified NSF/ANSI-140 Platinum.
