Six interior designers from the Southeast headed west with Mannington to Arizona’s Sonoran Desert for a 24-hour design immersion. The objective was a collection of modular carpet inspired by the natural beauty and built environments of the desert. Together, we created a carpet tile collection that reminds us that beauty and design inspiration, pattern and color can bloom anywhere. This flooring has an unexpected layering of texture and color which creates an intriguing interplay of patterns. We created a cohesive carpet design statement that emphasizes gradations of texture and subtle, yet complex palettes.
