Black & white - Shaw Contract
CONTRASTING colours in Shaw Contract’s Rapid Select carpet tiles were specified by designers at CBS Office Interiors for the Salon Supplies’ head offices in Southampton, UK.
The project included the modernisation of the furniture showroom which showcases salon furniture and fittings. The use of a black/white theme for this project reportedly gives the space an eye-catching impression. Colours Flint and Cobblestone from Rapid Select in style Roam were chosen.
The brief for the first floor was to create an area which showcased the vast range of salon furniture and provided enough flexibility to be able to change the space completely for product launches and seasonal promotions.
The flooring design had to be cost effective owing to the sizable spend on the project as a whole, but still give the client the impact they needed. To give the client flexibility for colour choices and trends, the flooring needed to be neutral without compromising on the look.
‘With an exposed ceiling and painted brick walls, we wanted a carpet tile that would fit the industrial feel, with texture and an organic pattern to bring the scheme together. Rapid Select allowed us to provide a cost-effective solution, without compromise on the design, texture or impact,’ says Lucy Northway, CBS Office Interiors.
Says Shaw: ‘Manufactured in the UK with Taskworx backing, the tiles created a balanced and modern look with the herringbone design of the elongated plank tiles creating a unique floor layout and giving it a textural interest too.’
