The UrbanShade® family has expanded its versatility to include a two-shade-band system — the UrbanShade Double Bracket. The system’s ultra low-profile configuration allows two large, 8-ft.-wide by up to 10-ft.-high (2.4 x 3m) shades to be mounted in a 5-1/4 x 5-1/4 in. (13.2 x 13.2cm) footprint. It is available with manual operation, wired low-voltage motors, or battery-powered motors. The design accommodates any combination of (1) two motorized, (2) two manual, or (3) one motorized and one manual shade. Also available is a convertible system in which it can be upgraded from manual to motorized at a later date.
Colorwash, a new modular carpet collection by Milliken, captures the movement of space and light providing an ethereal, sensory aesthetic when pattern emerges from true color. Subtle color-blending is nuanced with very large scale and random pattern effects to create soft shade variations that allow the floor to become a quiet background or a bold statement. Explore Colorwash in two scales: Matter, an organic random, and Medium, a linear gradation.
Taking interiors on a second trip around the world is Bending Earth II, a next-generation sequel to Mohawk Group’s popular Bending Earth Collection by Bigelow. Bending Earth II, a modular collection, offers three captivating patterns, including Lateral Surface, Reflective Symmetry and Vanishing Point, which seamlessly blend urban sophistication with simplistic natural elements. Further elevating the Collection’s universal appeal, Bending Earth II is available in 12 brilliant colorways, with six unique hues available for Vanishing Point and Reflective Symmetry and 6 diverse yet effortlessly coordinated color options for its Lateral Surface pattern.
