Modern Edit Broadloom – Silver in Broadloom

Modern Edit connects to the past and re-frames the concept of heritage. Tactile materials are disrupted by elements with an industrial edge, and textile craft is emboldened with unconventional scales and imperfect finishes. This collection introduces three new 18×36 carpet tile designs and two broadlooms, thoughtfully designed to reveal a distressed opulence.

Intricate, the 12x24 LVT option, adds to the cohesive product story of the Modern Edit collection.

Modern Edit LVT – Editor’s Choice in Hard-Surface

The LVT component of the Modern Edit collection introduces Intricate, a new 12×24 resilient style. Tactile materials are disrupted by elements with an industrial edge.  Unconventional scale and imperfect finish enhances the handmade aesthetic.  Exploring a new approach to hard surface design, here we’ve created a new emboss to follow the pattern and add dimension. The Modern Edit collection transcends barriers of residential and commercial aesthetics, allowing you to move from hard surface to carpet tile and custom rugs for a cohesive product story.

The Shaw Contract Design tool will be launched in tandem with new site features later this year.

Design Journey II5015_d

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.


Collective Time
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.


Grain + Pigment is a versatile offering of luxury vinyl plank featuring updated wood grain textures and subtly striated near-solids. Natural wood tones, metallic sheen and colors ranging from warm to cool to bright give unlimited possibilities in one plank format. The integrated palette can be mixed to create nuanced transitions with a subtle textural shift or bold contrasts of color. The collection an opportunity to design spaces using a palette of warm and cool tones and bold color options and metallics to inject luxe energy.
