Four Commercial Carpet Trends for 2016

These are exciting times for the commercial design industry.  New colors are constantly being introduced and applied in fresh and unexpected ways.  Innovative products – from seating to lighting to flooring — continue to inspire for their form and functionality.  The way we think about the spaces we work, live and play in continues to evolve.  In short, architects, designers, and manufacturers are all pushing the limits of what’s possible.  We are all rethinking the way in which people and products interact with their spaces.

So, what does this mean for commercial carpet products in the new year?  We have some thoughts!

More Custom Colors and Carpets – Our carpet mill customers frequently ask for new and custom colors, and we are happy to oblige!  This trend is driven by product design teams and designers who realize that as the most abundant surface for any interior, carpet can play a major role in making a design statement.  Custom colors and customized carpets are crucial in making that design statement. Customization can help create a space that evokes a feeling or an experience.  As color experts for more than 40 years, we’re proud to be able to work hand-in-hand with our mill partners and designers to help them create the custom colors they desire.

Fortunately, Zeftron nylon is a highly flexible fiber when it comes to styling.  Our fiber enables carpet manufacturers to create products with varying styles, patterns and colorways to easily work across multiple end-use spaces.  

Exceptional Performance – The more things change, the more they stay the same. Designers expect more from the products they specify today.  In addition to customization options and greater styling flexibility, they expect exceptional performance. Zeftron nylon is the only fiber brand that offers designers the piece-of-mind they need when it comes to performance.  Concerns about staining, color fading and wear become a non-factor when specifying a carpet made with Zeftron nylon.  

Cradle to Cradle

More Green –One could argue that having a sustainable product is a given in today’s marketplace. Yet sustainability should never be a given or an afterthought.  As a fully closed-loop recyclable nylon with a minimum of 25 percent recycled content in every color, Zeftron continues to be a responsible steward of the earth and its resources.  We see green not as a trend for 2016, but as a vital part of everything we do every single day, month and year.
