tx:style goes to NeoCon

Think you’ve got an eye for design? Here’s a chance to raise your virtual voice and help choose a new commercial carpet product from Mannington.

Mannington Commercial’s Tx:style Design Challenge is in the final weeks of voting. This unique contest which began in February invited designers who were relatively new in the industry to submit carpet designs out of which one will be chosen for launch of a full production line of commercial carpet. Capitalizing on the real-time feedback of social media and an interactive voting website, nearly 250,000 votes narrowed 440 design entries to six finalists.

The finalists visited Mannington and worked there with Mannington’s design team to refine their patterns and to create associated colorways. The completed designs along with the initial concepts and comments from the designers about the inspiration that led to their designs are featured on the tx:style website. Visit tx:style to join the discussion by leaving comments about the designs and vote for your favorite. Voting ends on June 16, the first day of NeoCon, with the winner to be announced during NeoCon. In addition to having their design launched as a full carpet collection, the winner will receive $7500.

Tricycle design provided development support after the initial Mannington concept and created promotional collateral and advertising. Good luck to all the designers and congratulations to Mannington for a great inaugural effort.

Update: The winner has been announced. Here's a link to the Interior Design magazine article.

Our blog is mostly about sustainable design in the interiors industry,
especially carpet. Sometimes it's just about us. Updated when we've got something good to say.
