Shaw Contract has relaunched A Walk in the Garden, a take on a collection which helped pioneer the Cradle to Cradle Product Standard. In collaboration with William McDonough, the flooring collection features four styles in a 9-by-36-inch format and a refreshed color palette of ten core colors.
The collection was inspired by William McDonough’s visit to a garden in China, where he was struck by the harmony of man-made weathered surfaces in nature.
McDonough’s personal images from the garden in China illustrate how sustainable design is the catalyst for the collection’s carpet tile patterns. The collection features different patterns, much like those found in a garden, to create color, texture and variety. Collection styles are applicable across market segments. Custom options are also available.
Constructed with Eco Solution Q nylon and EcoWorx backing, these products are recyclable and contribute to LEED. This collection is also backed by a lifetime commercial warranty covering abrasive wear, tuft-bind, edge ravel and delamination.
