A case could be made that a major challenge currently facing designers is creating an artful balance between natural elements and a modern, streamlined look.
For flooring, a pair of new offerings from Mannington Commercial nicely targets this niche.
Top Notch and Top Shelf (both pictured above) are modular carpet tiles that embrace biophilia while retaining a contemporary look.
Top Notch (above) plays with nature's geometric forms, integrating flat planes and circular shapes for a 3-D effect that evokes reflections on water. Top Shelf (below) offers a pattern of linear waves reminiscent of striations in sedimentary rock.
Both are available in 24" x 24" or 12" x 36" tiles and seven nature-inspired colors. They're also 3.0-TARR rated for exceptional durability in high-traffic areas. Last but not least, Mannington Commercial is committed to offsetting the collection's embodied carbon by 105 percent—by improving operations; incorporating recycled content; and using long-lived, environmentally friendly backing materials and carpet fibers.
