Summer Trend Alert

on October 22 | in Inspiration | by | with No Comments

From floors to furnishings, rich, dimensional textures and bold patterns stole the spotlight at last month’s Neocon design exhibition in Chicago. Here are three ways to take advantage of the trends.

As always, we came away from this year’s Neocon excited, inspired and ready to explore fresh new takes on spaces that are high on function and form. Among the year’s biggest trends, we saw rich, dimensional textures and bold patterns stealing the spotlight from floors to furnishings.

Whether it’s taking a leaf from nature and using color variation and pattern to build depth and texture, or going big with bold color and pattern for an up-front statement, here are three simple ways to use flooring to articulate these style directions in your next space.

1.    Create textural and visual interest in large spaces by pairing contrasting flooring materials in complementary tones. (Think hardwood and modular carpet tile, or Luxury Vinyl Tile (LVT) and broadloom in related colorways and tones. Get inspired with our Transcend LVT in Dovetail with ReVamp Think Twice broadloom in Transcend grey.

2.    Bring rich texture and dimension to a calm, sophisticated environment with a single commercial broadloom, modular carpet tile or luxury vinyl tile featuring tone-on-tone variations. Explore our Surface Works collection to get going.

3.    Energize retail, education and other public spaces with bold colors and patterns. Choose modular carpet tile or luxury vinyl tile and play with installation variations to create a custom look and feel. Start with our new Color Washed LVT.
