CHICAGO, Il. June 9, 2014—Inspired by humanity’s desire to find solace, simplicity and authenticity in an ever-growing technologically driven society, Mohawk Group designed the New Vintage Collection. New Vintage features natural colors and textures with over-dyed brights that draw influence from the antique look of handmade rugs.
According to Jackie Dettmar, vice president of product development for Mohawk Group, “As we designed this collection, we derived inspiration from the colorline of antiqued tone-on-tone neutrals. The palette and the aesthetic allow these planks to create spaces that provide real-life connections.” She added, “New Vintage celebrates the imperfections and irregularities that are typical and expected of beautifully crafted and handmade objects.”
Designed to complement 24-inch by 24-inch carpet tiles, the 12-inch by 36-inch plank sizes allow for unique installation methods as well as unexpected patterning and geometric visuals on the floor. All products within the New Vintage Collection feature the innovative and high-performance DuraColor® Premium Nylon fiber, which offers inherent and permanent stain resistance and is now made with 30 percent recycled content. DuraColor delivers unsurpassed colorfastness to light and atmospheric contaminants, resulting in easy maintenance and the ability to withstand the harshest commercial settings.
“From a functional standpoint, this collection is a facilities designer’s dream,” said Chris Stulpin, Mohawk Group’s creative director. “Because patterns were designed with different percentages of coverage, a facility can truly pull out one tile and replace it with any stock material without compromising the original design.”
Continuing Mohawk Group’s sustainable mission, New Vintage is also equipped with the Company’s EcoFlex™ NXT, a high-performing, NSF-140 Platinum certified backing system. With superior strength against delamination and edge ravel, New Vintage products stay in use and out of the waste stream longer.
The New Vintage collection is featured in Mohawk Group’s NeoCon showroom #3-377.
