Mannington Commercial announced the grand prize winner in its Tx:Style Design Challenge during NeoCon. Winner Katie Henry of One Eleven Design in Fort Wayne, Indiana, will travel to the Salone Internazionale del Mobile furniture fair in Milan next year courtesy entirely of Mannington. She was also awarded $7,000 in total prize money and the opportunity to develop a full carpet collection alongside Mannington's product development team. More than 100,000 Tx:Style Design Challenge votes were cast online and by visitors to Mannington's NeoCon showroom in Chicago. Selected by public vote from among four finalists, Henry's design, titled Stacked Up, was inspired by stacked stone. Now translated into carpet, the pattern offers abstract organic shapes in structured layers and a juxtaposition of bold and nature-inspired colors.
