Look No Further: Surface Theory by Lees
The earliest magnifying lens was a simple glass globe filled with water, which dates from 424 BC. Much later we find the invention of eyeglasses in 13th-century Italy, a device that altered reality for those in need of spectacles. The microscope is the ultimate magnifier, and that was not created until Galileo Galilee’s occhiolino (little eye) of 1625. Any of these instruments alter vision in ways that transform reality. Imagine seeing—for the first time—the grain pattern in a piece of wood or the sinuous ridges of fingertips. Close-up texture is exactly the idea behind Surface Theory, a collection of modular and broadloom carpeting by Lees.

Magnified Textures in Modular Carpets
Lees explains the inspiration behind Surface Theory: “From the wispy veins of a fallen leaf to the leathery crossroads of an elephant’s ear, Surface Theory translates textures of natural objects.” This collection features “dimensional patterns, rich neutrals and energetic accent hues." Offered in 16 colorways, the carpets in Surface Theory work in varied interiors, from subtle corporate offices to daring retail spaces. Surface Theory includes Break Through, Look Deeper, Outer Appeal, Sheer Exposure, Sneaking Suspicion, and Within View.
Surface Theory also provides excellent color, since the collection is treated with Duracolor®, a high-performance fiber system that guards against stains because it is built into the carpets fibers “rather than applied topically.” The benefits of this collection by Lees don’t end there. Surface Theory’s modular products use the Integrated Cushion Thermobond™ RC (ICT™ RC) backing, which gives superior cushioning and performance; ICT™ RC also contains 35% pre-consumer recycled content.
