Our mill partner, Encore Hospitality Carpet, debuted their new Montage Collection at this year’s Boutique Design New York. Inspired by art in its various forms, styles, and techniques, Montage consists of more than 30 new broadloom carpet designs in multiple colorways and patterns. Featuring the exceptional color quality for which Zeftron is known, and manufactured with Encore’s state-of-the-art Colorpoint and Infinity technologies, the collection offers sophisticated and contemporary styles for guest rooms, corridors, and public spaces.
A Masterful Collaboration
Encore’s product design team skillfully utilized Zeftron to bring its vision for the Montage Collection to life. Only Zeftron – with its complete color palette of more than 120 colors and its easy-to-use styling flexibility – could create the desired look of the collection. Montage’s patterns showcase an all-encompassing appreciation of art, from modern graphic structures to previously hidden, but now unearthed and discovered masterpieces. A truly unique mosaic of patterns and motifs, all designs within the collection incorporate elements of curated pieces obtained over time, displayed to inspire and be enjoyed by others.
Montage’s sophisticated color palette reflects a focus of warm greys and indigo. Some of the colors chosen from the Zeftron palette include Blue Stone, Midnight Orchid, Marshwood, Puritan Grey, Sand, and Cedar. The colors bring a mid-century modern aesthetic, combining a richness and masculinity with soft feminine touches from lighter earth tones. Accents of blush tones in both brick rusts and nude beiges highlight the designs with visual layering.
“While art might be one of the simplest ways to express creativity and individual expression, it is often the most impactful,” said Encore Hospitality Carpet Creative Director Lisa Herreth. “The Montage collection was designed to create comforting hospitality spaces, with plush, impactful carpet embellishing the environment. And, just like art, the patterns and motifs can be subtly incorporated into any commercial space as an alluring backdrop or can stand alone to make a bold, attractive statement. Whatever the need, Montage can serve as a designer’s muse.”
With its passion for the arts, Encore is donating a portion of each Montage style specified to The Dreaming Zebra Foundation, a public charity that provides art and music supplies to children and young adults throughout the world.
