MannMedia_300What’s new on the commercial front in carpeting?  Options.  Color options in particular.  Mannington Mills just released a brand new collection called “Connected”.  Made up of four coordinating styles, two of the styles have an interesting twist that deserves some attention.

“Social” and “Media” are both tip-sheared patterned loops.  Beautifully designed, the entire collection is built with 100% Antron Lumena Type 6.6 solution-dyed nylon.  Add to that t the ColorSafe treatment (for bleach resistance) and X-GUARD for stain resistance, and these modular carpet tiles have a strong performance story.

Let’s switch gears for a moment and talk about the aesthetics.  Both patterns feature a contemporary open-grid plaid with a specialty accent color.  Here’s the twist:  YOU get to choose that accent color.  Both styles share a color palette of 16 colorways—all of them are fresh and relevant to today’s commercial market.  Add to that 30 color stripe options, and you have a collection that lends itself to customization.   I can definitely see these products used in retail, corporate, healthcare, and even hospitality settings.

MannSocial_300Designers love choices, especially when the manufacturer allows them to customize their design with a minimum of only 500 square yards. In addition, this flooring system contributes points toward LEED qualifications.  Even the Infinity Modular backing contains pre-consumer recycled content, and the carpet can ultimately be reclaimed through Mannington’s LOOP carpet reclamation program.  By the way, Mannington Mills carpets are made in the USA.  Another plus.

I know that’s a lot to absorb, but the story behind the tailored good looks of both “Social” and “Media” is pretty impressive.  Architects, designers, end-users, take note.  There’s something brand new that’s worth looking into.  This is an architect folder that deserves space in your library—and a book you will certainly be using frequently.
