Shaw’s Material Matters

Shaw Contract Group’s latest tile collection is Material Matters, inspired by contrasting solid forms and atmospheric matter. Tiles come in both 24×24 and 18×36. Iridescent striations wind through atmospheric patterns, whether smoky, luminous or solid.

Says Shaw creative director Reesie Duncan, “This collection was designed with the intent to be very tonal in color, while conveying a sense of malleability and movement. Material Matters features five coordinating styles that capture subtle reflective highlights of silver, gold and platinum. Influenced by the subdued geometry of folded pleats and linear ice; the blurred spaces between light and shadow; smoke and vapor; and organic patterns – the installed result is hazy, beautiful and richly mellow.”

The 24×24 products – Embark and Wander – are each offered in 12 colors, premium branded Eco Solution Q nylon with 45 per cent recycled content. Both products are available through Shaw’s Quick Ship program. Orders up to 2,500 yards can be shipped within two weeks.

The 18×36 products – Fringe, Haze and Vapor – are each offered in 12 colors, premium branded Eco Solution Q nylon with 45 per cent recycled content.

NOTE: Recycled content is based on allocated nylon fiber from Shaw’s total nylon fiber production and determined as a percent of total Eco Solution Q output. Actual recycled content in this product will likely vary.
