Best of Year Winner, Carpet: Broadloom: Shaw Contract Group — Couture, inspired by wool
Couture, inspired by wool pairs the beauty of a fine wool-influenced fiber with metallic, high luster accents, contrasting the natural with the industrial. Couture emulates the luxury and versatility of a wool product, while being constructed of synthetic nylon for performance and recyclability in the high-end professional service market.
Best of Year Merit Awards, Carpet: Broadloom
Bentley Prince Street — Satellite City
Moving beyond the city center without leaving its vibrant energy behind, Satellite City brings a fresh perspective to broadloom and carpet tile. With stunning solution dyed colorways, Satellite City delivers urban sophistication in mid-scale, naturally organic patterning. Satellite City is made with Antron Lumena® solution dyed nylon.
Constantine Carpet — Gradation + Assoc.™
Gradation and Associates™ tells a story about scale and rhythm, both methodically or random. The varying scales of loop and shear paired with the crisp contrast of a two color construction create a very graphic design approach. The entire collection presents a toolbox of design options which realize the need for diverse scale variation.
Shaw Hospitality Group — Factory
Inspired by the 1934 Museum of Modern Art exhibition “Machine Art” which recognized the beauty of objects created without artistic intention, Shaw Hospitality Group created the Factory collection. Factory illustrates a unique design approach by contrasting the sharp intricacies of machinery with the soft flow of kinetic rhythm.
