Interior Design Best of Year Finalists
Two Mannington products have been voted as finalists for Interior Design's Best of Year awards. Reflecting the company's product portfolio's span across both carpet and hard surface, products were selected in each.
Undercurrent; Earthly Elements
In hard surfaces, Earthly Elements is hardwood flooring in squares and planks. Real handcrafted hardwood in two species and eight colors, available in 12x12" squares, 12x24" planks, and coordinating 6" planks. Engineered with cross-grain construction for commercial performance and dimensional stability, and with an aluminum oxide, UV cured wearlayer. For a custom wood floor look, previously seen only in porcelain and LVT.
In carpet, the Undercurrent Collection was created to emphasize the effects of the piece dye process. Undercurrent's layered complexity, texture and rich saturated colors offer a contemporary aesthetic and dynamic sense of movement. Backed with NSF 140 Platinum backings, with 10-30% postconsumer content, and available in both broadloom and modular carpet tile.
