Mannington opens 2010 Tx:Style voting

Home News Mannington opens 2010 Tx:Style voting

Calhoun, Ga.– Mannington Commercial and10,000 designers in the Tx:Style community invite the public to vote for the grand prize winners in the 2010 Tx:Style Design Challenge. Last year’s competition generated half a million votes.

Voters can choose from six designs created by young designers, each with less than seven years of experience. The designs span the gambit of inspiration and application, ranging from organic to geometric, from layered patterns to pure texture.

This year’s designs were so graphically interesting that designers were offered the opportunity to interpret their concepts into both carpet and hard surface. “The process of taking a single design concept and translating it into two vastly different flooring mediums has been fascinating,” said Natalie Jones, vice president, commercial brand development and creative product. “These young designers work with a real understanding of materials and their impact on a space and their ability to interpret a design into LVT or rubber tile, as well as a more subjective representation in tufted carpet, has been wonderful to see.”

Mannington’s design development team has worked closely with all six designers to develop patterns, manufacture product samples and create coordinated colorways. The designs are: Blue Matrix by Athena Abrol of Los Angeles; Gus by Bethany Burton of Minneapolis; Rainfall by Laurel Harrison of Los Angeles; Throw Caution to the Wind by Heather Miller of Charlotte, North Carolina; Thirds by Joanne Titcomb of Bethlehem, Pennsylvania; and Tracks, by a team of Samantha Gotta and Jenny Song of Los Angeles.

The winner of each category will earn $7,500 and launch a full line of commercial carpet or hard surface flooring.

Voting will take place entirely online, and close at 12:00 pm (noon) Central Standard Time on June 15, for the winner to be announced during NeoCon.
