Popular carbon neutral carpet tile collection

MILLIKEN says its popular carbon neutral carpet tile collection Comfortable Concrete has been reimagined by the company’s in-house UK design team.

Comfortable Concrete Retold is available with fresh new designs and updated colours, as well as a new value engineered construction to help meet the market needs of the current climate. The collection is inspired by the raw, urban feel of the concrete metropolis and street style. The colour palette has evolved to reflect the trend for warmer and lighter colours. There’s a shift from the greys of old, to greige: a combination of grey and beige – a warmer tone that provides the perfect backdrop to the pops of mossy greens, watery aquas and blush pinks.

Says Milliken: ‘Comfortable Concrete Retold can help create a calm and soothing environment through the sensitive use of nurturing colours and comforting textures. The bold patterns and colours can be combined with the calm and understated to create reassuring and nurturing safe spaces, as well as playful and animated break-out areas. Neutral shades create depth and interest by blending from light to dark. Comfortable Concrete Retold offers the flexibility to create energetic spaces with an urban edge while ensuring a cohesive look throughout.

‘With its highly textured effect (using Milliken’s patented patterning technology Millitron) a sophisticated urban aesthetic is created.’

For additional impact an inset ‘rug’ effect can be added to punctuate a floor plane with the Urban Graffiti and Urban Energy designs. These tile designs are the result of Milliken’s collaboration with Loughborough University design students and are inspired by the ‘New London Fabulous Movement’: colourful, surface-driven public art and design which sprung up during the pandemic as a reaction against the dominant minimalism of recent years.

Continues Milliken: ‘The collection is packed with performance benefits, including Milliken’s cushion backing providing luxurious underfoot and excellent acoustic performance, outstanding appearance retention and durability. The collection is designed to support well-being, with health, happiness and productivity in mind. This biophilic carpet tile collection contributes to WELL Building Certification. As with all Milliken’s carpet and LVT collections Comfortable Concrete Retold is Carbon Neutral.

Comfortable Concrete Retold has the following certifications: Cradle to Cradle Silver, TUV, EPD and CRI.’
