The kitchen showcases Mohawk’s Zanzibar Reclaimed hardwood, a 5-inch wide, engineered plank made of wood reclaimed from throughout the world. Zanzibar Reclaimed is FSC certified and provides striking visuals with scrapes, plugs, and other distressed elements.
The adjacent living space used SmartStrand Sorona, the triexta carpet made with DuPont Sorona. Bio-PDO, which is made from corn sugar and is a renewable resource, makes up 37% of DuPont Sorona. Additionally, stain protectors are built-in the carpet fiber and will never wear or wash off. It will even resist discoloration from bleach.
Jeff Lewis, whose series Flipping Out begins its fourth season on Bravo this summer, took on the challenge of designing this year’s state-of-the-art Kitchen of the Year. For this project, Mohawk’s flooring fit perfectly with Lewis’ concept. He said this is the first time he worked with Mohawk, and that he was extremely impressed with the company and its products.
“The Kitchen of the Year project shows what’s possible with modern materials,” said David Duncan, vice president of marketing for Mohawk. “Our products demonstrate exceptional beauty, functionality, and even sustainability without compromise. We’re delighted to be included in this project.”
