Intrigued by the work of the inner city street artist, Milliken Contract designer Todd Van Der Kruik created the Paste Up Collection. Building on the notion of layering and creating texture where paper and glue meet the uneven surface of the wall, Van Der Kruik created a collection of six modular carpet designs. Instead of paper and glue, his medium became light and shadow, layering itself in unexpected ways and calling attention to the texture, dimension and flow of pattern within the carpet.

Johnsonite’s standard iQ-constructed Granit Collection has been updated with an expanded palette of 31 colors. This new program was developed with significant research within the health care specifying community, assuring a program that works within hospitals, long-term care facilities and wellness centers. What’s more, Granit’s proven iQ construction, which blends innovative ingredients with polyurethane reinforcement, assures that no wax or finish is required over the long lifetime of the floor. Centiva’s World Options, the company’s newest commercial flooring collection, incorporates international designs, influences and tastes into a comprehensive collection well suited for use anywhere around the globe. World Options incorporates both new and existing Centiva products into a flooring collection that can indeed be used globally in concert with other internationally inspired décor.
The Spectrum Collection unites HOK design with Mannington performance in modular carpet and premium rubber flooring tiles. The modular carpet in the collection, Elemental Spectrum (featured here), was inspired by spectrograph readings of the wavelengths of elements from the Periodic Table—including carbon, hydrogen, iron and zinc—and by using linear construction with a 6-foot repeat to create a unique design for each tile.

A Bentley Prince Street classic makes another appearance as Charles River Redux. Re-engineered to combine two premium fibers from Ultron, Charles River Redux combines highly recycled content with color technology Available in broadloom and 18-inch by 18-inch carpet tile, Ultron Renew utilizes pre-consumer fiber and Charles River Redux contains 70 percent pre-consumer recycled

Cikel introduces the Vila Velha Collection of exotic engineered Brazilian Cherry hardwood flooring. Vila Velha represents “real” Brazilian Cherry, not the maple or oak specie stained to appear that way. Cikel’s Vila Velha authentic Brazilian Cherry is scraped by hand to create a hardwood flooring product with true character. With eight layers of oxide protection, the durable Vila Velha Collection is ideal for residential and commercial applications and is offered in three colors: Coffee, Tobacco and Caramel.Inspired by clean, streamlined urban looks, Amtico introduces Composite, a resilient flooring collection that blends particles to produce the appearance of a poured resin or ceramic tile. The design features bevelled edges and can be installed with Amtico’s feature strips or Easy Grout for a natural grout appearance.
Syncopated cut and loop textures sculpt the mid-century designs embedded within the Estilo Collection, new from Atlas Carpet Mills. The products of the Estilo Collection include Artistry (featured here), Form and Image. With a nod to Frank Lloyd Wright, the geometric quality of these three patterns balances energy and serenity, movement and structure. High quality construction and unique aesthetic styling make this a versatile product line with broad application for corporate, health care and hospitality interiors.
