InterfaceFLOR Unveils New On-Trend Collections : Once upon a Tile

• May 25, 2011

Showcases Products Against a Mystical Backdrop of Fantasy and Fable

Our latest collections are right on trend so it seemed only natural to promote and showcase them in a way that is equally of the moment.  Modern takes on fables and fairy tales are a major theme this year in movies, social events and design, so we decided to explore this mysterious world and delve into the darker side of some of the best-known children’s fairy tales. The result is a visually stunning, dramatic and edgy backdrop which shows off our new collections to spectacular effect.

Michele Iacovitti, Vice President of Marketing & Branding, InterfaceFLOR EMEAI

InterfaceFLOR, a worldwide leader in the design of innovative modular flooring and a recognised environmental pioneer, has unveiled a series of new collections inspired by today’s top cultural, social and artistic trends.  The influence of vintage revival, a desire for luxury, the industrial look, and a return to more natural, organic shapes can all be seen in the company’s latest designs.

Reflecting the trends of the moment, whilst evoking nostalgia for all things past, these latest collections include a wide variety of colours, textures and installation techniques, allowing customers to create an ultra-modern interior with a certain timeless quality.

Several of the new products are designed to reduce environmental impacts, reflecting InterfaceFLOR’s commitment to sustainability.  Features include recycled content in the pile yarn and backing, random installation to minimise waste, Microtuft construction which uses less yarn and Cool Carpet, which means the product’s carbon emissions are offset during its entire lifecycle.

In keeping with InterfaceFLOR’s design credentials, the products are being launched in a highly original campaign called Once upon a Tile – a mystical and edgy interpretation of the classic fables and fairy tales currently in vogue.

Products available in the new collections include:

Scribble
Random, even chaotic doodles feature strongly in the latest trend forecasts, evoking a sense of unpredictability and freedom as people react against the growing sophistication of today’s design. Scribble features tiles with non-geometric and meandering tufted design patterns, in a wide range of colours and the option to customise colours for spaces over 300m2. Scribble also minimises its mark on the environment, with post industrial recycled content in both the pile yarn and backing, Cool Carpet included as standard, plus non-directional installation, resulting in lower installation costs and less waste.

Consolidation
With its distinctive printed design, Consolidation has a feel that is both ‘constructed’ yet organic, capturing today’s fascination for yesterday’s craft skills combined and the current trend for creating texture through layering. This range includes Cool Carpet as standard and has a Microtuft construction that uses minimal yarn improving the environmental credentials of ‘less is more’ The result is flooring with the durability and look of a hard floor but the acoustics of a soft floor.

Circles
This range is based on a simple shape, yet plays with its proportions to produce something unique. Patterns have been created this way since the dawn of time and using this ancient principle, Circles transports any interior into an ultra modern future.
