Mannington Select Reinvigorates Wood-Look LVT with New Species and Colors

With new visuals in wood, stone, and abstract patterns, Mannington Select LVT is a major launch, bringing a tremendous selection of pattern options, a broader range of colors, and a compelling color coordination story across product categories.  All of this is then combined into a new premium construction elevating Mannington Select to the pinnacle of the Mannington Commercial LVT product offering.

The collection update started with a color update to existing wood patterns, including Chatham Oak, Princeton Cherry, Barnwood Plank, and Mountain Pine—then extended to add key neutrals. The design team then added new wood species such as a stylish and modern Maple, a dark antique Walnut, a distinguished classical Walnut, and an Oak option with softer graining that is available in less traditional, more neutral colors.

The resulting wood offering brings more options to traditional clients, as well as choices that are informed by today’s trends—rustic looks as well as clean and modern aesthetics.

Mannington Select’s stone and abstract products also underwent a major overhaul. New stone visuals include a fine-grained, foliated Slate that has a layer of pearl ink in the print to give depth. Sandstone features a soft grain combined with a gritty visual texture. Among the abstracts, Dissolve is a linear option while Suber is non-directional, and Hybrid mixes a linear look with metallic abstracts to create lovely color play.

Select includes patent-pending Quantum Guard(R) Elite multi-layered protection, engineered for best in class dimensional stability, advanced stain resistance, superior impact resistance, clean cutting during installation and with the highest scratch resistance in the industry. Its easy, no-polish maintenance significantly reduces overall life cycle cost and total cost of ownership.

The products are certified under FloorScore, approved as CHPS 01350 compliant, and recognized in LEED. Mannington Select LVT is manufactured in an ISO 9001 and 14001 registered manufacturing facility. Mannington Select warranties have been enhanced because of the new performance related features.  Those new warranties include a Limited 15 Year Commercial Warranty and Limited 15 Year Quantum Guard® Elite Warranty apply.

Experience the Spirit of the Oregon Wilds with Mannington Commercial’s Portland Project LVT

Mannington Commercial has launched The Portland Project, a new LVT collection inspired by the rugged beauty of the Pacific Northwest.

The variety of styles within The Portland Project allows for interpretation in innovative design compositions: designers can conceptualize and realize their own personal vision for a space, whether a bold combination of colors and patterns or subtle understatement.

The collection began with a road trip to Oregon. The design team immersed themselves in the region, exploring the rugged coastline and trekking through mountains and forests. The spirit of the trip is captured in the collection’s four unique styles: two coordinating abstract patterns and two wood grains, all offered in 6”x48” planks.

Visually, the styles harken to Oregon’s secluded ridgelines and trail heads, represented as sharp liner movements and layered striations of color in the collection. Patterns mix large and small scale, and hues range from richly saturated to neutral, coastal-inspired grays and browns. The designers’ thoughtful approach to classic and emerging color trends — combined with the flexibility and durability of LVT — makes the collection perfect for corporate, retail, higher education and hospitality projects.

The Portland Project LVT is made in Amtico 30 construction with a 30 mil wear layer, 2.5 mm overall thickness. It also includes patent-pending Quantum Guard(R) Elite multi-layered protection, engineered for best in class dimensional stability, advanced stain resistance, superior impact resistance, clean cutting during installation and with the highest scratch resistance in the industry. Its easy, no-polish maintenance significantly reduces overall life cycle cost and total cost of ownership. The product has a 15-year commercial warranty and a 15-year Quantum Guard Elite Wear warranty.

The collection is fully recyclable, Floor Score certified, and made in the USA.

Origami Collection by Mannington Commercial Wins Best of Year

Prestigious Interior Design Magazine award honors best product design of 2017

Mannington Commercial has won a Best of Year award for Product Design, from Interior Design magazine, for Origami Collection. An upscale three-pattern carpet collection, Origami explores and interprets the classic art of paper folding.

Designed by the Mannington Design Studio in collaboration with HOK Product Design, Origami’s patterns take inspiration from origami folds and are named in the same spirit: Mountain Fold, Valley Fold and Fan Fold. Soft lines strike a unique balance between geometric and organic, while scale and line weight play off one another, sculpting complexity out of simplicity and high design out of understatement.

Structured yet highly versatile, each pattern can stand alone or be matched with others to create dynamic looks and wayfinding layouts.The large- and medium-scale modular patterns abstractly reference folding techniques, while a medium-scale textural tile/broadloom coordinate offers a simple, elegant base for pattern interplay.

The collection’s 12 colorways are drawn from Antron Lumena yarns, creating a useful corporate palette of solid neutrals that address cool and warm grays in light, medium and dark, as well as lovely neutral and navy blue tones.

Mannington’s advanced tufting capabilities were used to create Origami’s upscale aesthetics, bringing modern luxury to any kind of commercial space — from corporate to higher education to hospitality.

Origami is fully recyclable via Mannington’s LOOP® program. Antron is an Environmentally Preferable Product; the modular tiles Mannington’s Infinity® Modular backing contains pre-consumer recycled content and is certified NSF/ANSI-140 Gold (an Environmental Product Declaration for the backing is available). Broadloom backings Ultrabac® and Integra HP® RE contain a minimum of 10% post-consumer recycled content by total product weight and are Certified NSF/ANSI-140 Platinum and CRI Green Label Plus. Origami is made in the USA, in Mannington’s ISO 14001 registered facilities.
