Mannington announces winners of tx:style design challenge

Home News Mannington announces winners of tx:style design challenge

CHICAGO—Mannington Commercial has announced the two grand prize winners in its second tx:style design challenge: Athena Abrol of WWCOT and Laurel Harrison of AECOM.

“It has been wonderful to work with the seven talented young finalists over the past few months as they developed their concepts into patterns for the big vote,” said Natalie Jones, vice president, commercial brand development/creative product. “We’re so proud of the creativity and clarity of design vision that each one brought to the table.”

Online voting for the competition opened mid-May and closed during last month’s NeoCon. The winners were announced in Mannington’s NeoCon showroom. Approximately 135 designers and members of the press came to the announcement.

Abrol and Harrison each won $7,500 in total prize money and, over the course of the coming year, will work with Mannington’s design development team to create a full collection around their winning pattern—one hard surface and one carpet.

“We’re delighted with both patterns and will now begin the process with the designers and our in-house team of determining which will be developed as a hard surface and which as a carpet,” Jones said. “Both collections will be launched into the market in time for NeoCon next year.”

Mannington’s tx:style community at mannington.com/txstyle is an online community where more than 13,000 registrants from around the world share product and project inspiration, and participate in monthly contests.
