Product Steals + Splurges: Mohawk Group

Jan. 29, 2016

Design-savvy options for any budget

Let’s face it: no designer wants to see their thoughtful designs get cut to pieces because of the bottom line. Projects too often get value engineered down to the lowest bidder, and specifiers are often left looking for lower-cost product options that will do the job without sacrificing aesthetics.

Then again, you might be fortunate enough to work with a client with deep pockets and are looking for that perfect product regardless of its price point.

Wherever you find yourself on the spending spectrum, Steals+Splurges offers some great options in a range of costs. This month, we take a look at some offerings from Mohawk and pair similar flooring designs at a variety of price points to ensure you find the right product for your needs.

Secoya $3-$3.50/sq. ft.*

Secoya is one of the styles in Mohawk’s Hot and Heavy resilient tile collection. These bold, oversized formats are some of the most sought after products in the industry and are made possible by their loose lay construction. Each jumbo tile and plank is coated with a non-skid backing that, together with the substantial weight of the product, keeps tiles on the floor under heavy commercial traffic.

Diffused Selvage $12-14/sq. yd.*  

Part of Mohawk’s popular Fiber Arts collection, Diffused Selvage is a tufted, textured patterned loop broadloom product that achieves a woven appearance. Available in nine sophisticated colorways and manufactured with premium-branded solution-dyed nylon, Diffused Selvage offers a unique elegance for high-traffic contract environments.

City Feel $6.50-$7/sq. ft.* 

City Feel is a redefined oak offering in a modern 7-inch wide plank. Colors are complemented with a low luster, while a wire brushed texture accentuates the wood’s linear grain pattern.

Uncommon Thread, by Karastan, a Mohawk Group Company $30-32/sq. yd.*   

Uncommon Thread epitomizes the sophistication of the Karastan brand, Mohawk Group’s luxury product line. This woven product offers classic craftsmanship in visuals that reflect the handmade aesthetic of the maker movement, an influential force in the design and culture of today’s workplaces. Highlighting the time-honored craft of weaving, Uncommon Thread’s beauty, quality, and endurance set the pace that
others strive to follow.

Tranquil Beauty $25-27/sq. yd.*   

Tranquil Beauty is a subtle striated pattern carpet tile that is designed to bring texture and composed elegance to a wide range of interior environments. This tufted, patterned tip-sheared carpet tile is manufactured with premium branded solution-dyed nylon and is available in 15 sophisticated colorways, ranging from soothing greys to regal jewel tones.

Sector $15-17/sq. yd.*  

Sector carpet tile features an exaggerated striated pattern that is both bold and elegant. This tufted, level pattern loop carpet tile is manufactured with premium branded solution-dyed nylon and is available in 11 contrasting tonals.

Analogue $25-27/sq. yd.*  

Analogue is a linear style modular carpet tile that offers modern styling while embracing performance. This high contrasting linear style is constructed with Mohawk’s Duracolor for stain resistance on nylon fibers. Analogue is engineered to endure while minimizing the need for chemical-based cleaning products.
