Grain + Pigment is a new, versatile offering of luxury vinyl tile featuring updated wood grain textures and subtly striated near-solids in a 7” x 48” plank format product. Natural wood tones, metallic sheen and colors ranging from warm to cool to bright give unlimited possibilities.
“Grain + Pigment provide an opportunity to inject luxe energy into a space,” said Shaw Contract Group Creative Director Reesie Duncan. “The versatile palette can be mixed to create nuanced transitions with a subtle textural shift or bold contrasts of color.”
Suitable for all market segments, the collection features two styles:
- Grain: a wood-inspired design, with textures ranging from smooth to wire-brushed in natural wood tones. Available in 22 colors, including four colors with a soft metallic sheen.
- Pigment: a near-solid with a subtle texture available in 12 colors ranging from warm to cool.

Design Journey: Novice & Master
Design Journey is an exploration of deep-rooted cultures and handmade traditions and how people reach across the globe to link the two. Inspired by our travels to Cambodia and Laos, we immersed ourselves in the culture, craft and technique of artisan weavers. Design Journey captures the art of silk weaving in a luxurious and richly textured collection of designs. The travels resulted in a plush, textural and sophisticated collection featuring varied scales of textures and 9 styles in 16 colors, including warm and cool neutrals and deep rich hues.
Open public spaces and large scale workplaces are typically impacted by architecture, so we designed Flight with public ambiance in mind and engineered the collection for heavy foot traffic. A comprehensive flooring solution, Flight features four tile products, available in 13 colors. Bold pattern interplays with color, stripes and a shifting ombre – achieving a directional impact within a vast space.
Based on the internal clockwork of humankind, Collective Time is a tile and broadloom collection, taking inspiration of the shifting light captured from day to night and proportions of time tracked in our daily routines of activity and rest. The collection explores the changing of light from dawn to dusk and allows the styles to be used to create scale and subtle color shifts. Broadloom and tile can be combined to create a dynamic interactive pattern mix or a more monochromatic space.
