Every year in June, members of the Interior Design world flock to Chicago for North America’s largest and most important design exposition and conference for commercial interiors: NeoCon. More than 700 of the leading companies in the commercial interiors world launch thousands of new products into the market. This year, one of our favorite commercial carpet and flooring providers, Shaw Contract, launched a ton of new products! Two of the product lines, “Active” and “Off the Grid,” are some of our favorite new releases of the year. . The “Active” collection utilizes graphic, linear patterns and bold, fluorescent colors in an effort to keep workplace occupants energized and alert. The main inspiration for the styles within the “Active” product line has been derived from the textures, shapes and patterns used in active wear. The design team focused on how those same techniques can be interpreted into flooring that can really activate a space. This collection features four styles in a 12”x48” carpet tile and three brand new fluorescent colors. The “Off the Grid” collection focuses on bringing nature into our built environments as workplace design trends show a shift towards needing more reflective, calm spaces. This collection features very textural and organic patterns and natural, calming colors. To gain inspiration for “Off the Grid,” the design team headed out into nature to observe organic patterns in things like spider webs and moss. This collection features two broadloom styles and four styles in 12”x48” carpet tiles. To find more information about these products, please visit https://www.shawcontract.com/neocon/Read more >
