NeoCon 2019: Looking for carpeting that resists stains and dirt? Check out Mohawk Group’s award-winning innovations

by Brianna Crandall — June 17, 2019 — Global commercial flooring provider Mohawk Group returned with two Silver awards and an Innovation award for its carpeting collections from the prestigious Best of NeoCon Competition at this month’s NeoCon 2019 commercial furnishings show.

The Textural Effects collection (highlighted below) garnered a Silver award in the Broadloom Carpet category, True Hues won Silver in the Healthcare Flooring category, and Connecting Neurons Definity earned an Innovation award in the Carpet: Contract Area Rugs category.

Textural Effects

According to Mohawk Group, the Best of NeoCon Silver winner Textural Effects broadloom carpeting merges the tactile qualities of natural designs with durability and stain resistance. The multicategory carpet collection employs heavily textured and bulky Heathered Hues yarns to deliver natural wool-like visuals spanning the organic and the man-made.

When used with other finishes that have a smooth surface or high gloss, Textural Effects provides visual and tactile contrast. Collection styles appear especially warm and rich when paired with wood tones and hard surfaces, notes the company. This overall sensory aesthetic brings warmth and performance to sustain end-users in all types of environments.

Four styles across 12″ x 36″ carpet plank and broadloom emphasize the creature comforts of home for contract interiors. Plank-style Thematic Thread is a tweed pattern with an irregular loomed fabric quality, while Tactile Infusion plank offers a larger-scale cozy, sweater-like aesthetic. Moss Moderne broadloom coordinates with the Lichen Collection and evokes the palpable forms found in nature. The Matte Finish broadloom style is more tailored, with a classic loop texture that references nubby bouclé fabrics.

Textural Effects is manufactured using Mohawk Group’s new Duracolor Tricor [see previous  FMLink article] solution-dyed nylon fiber, which leverages a modified triangular-shaped core to deliver a high level of stain resistance, colorfastness, durability, color clarity and enhanced soil performance.
