Celebrating the art and craft of antique textiles, the new Modern Refinement Collection from Tarkett elevates their classic beauty with modern technique. The collection is curated with three new soft surface patterns and a digitally printed luxury vinyl tile that all work together to add a sense of hand-crafted excellence to any design.
Knot Stitch is the most textural and luxurious pattern in the series, the result of Tarkett designers’ admiration for hand-knotted textiles. By combining large and small yarn deniers, the team translated the irregular feel of handcrafted materials into this inviting, truly sensory experience. Knot Stitch is available in three modular tile sizes.
Thread Craft is a fresh interpretation of timeless linen, using two different yarn processess to recreate the textile’s uniquely blended look. This staple of the collection is available in Powerbond and three modular tile sizes.
Corded Cloth has the look of multiple cords of different lengths laid parallel, then stitched together, much like the technique used in the 18th century to make British country clothing.
It’s an elegant and versatile surface that brings the past into the present with timeless design. Corded Cloth is available in Powerbond and three modular tile sizes.
All three products share a soothing color palette of nature-inspired neutrals, accented by soft jewel tones for additional warmth. This allows the three patterns to be mixed and matched together, for added visual interest and depth throughout the space.
To complement the plush surfaces of the Modern Refinement Collection, Artifice LVT with Techtonic® protection helps ground a space with feelings of strength and resilience. The unique visual layers the soft, linear cords of woven textiles with the varied color and pattern found in natural stone. Designers can choose from a palette of four fresh neutrals and two tile sizes. This digitally-printed product also allows custom coloring for low minimums and quick lead times.
“As people return to work and public spaces, they want to find the same comforts and amenities they’ve been enjoying at home for the last several months,” said Tommy Keener, senior design director for Tarkett North America. “The Modern Refinement Collection conveys the imperfect beauty of hand-crafted materials to create a warmer, more inviting experience in commercial interiors.”
The Modern Refinement Collection is available with Tarkett’s Powerbond hybrid resilient flooring technology. Introduced in 1967, Powerbond has revolutionized the industry for more than 50 years. The cushion is designed with a scientifically precise density and thickness, so every cell is consistent and closed to ensure moisture cannot enter. With the look and feel of carpet and the performance of resilient, Powerbond seams are chemically welded to create an impermeable, wall-to-wall moisture barrier and provide for enhanced ease of soil and stain removal. Its unique construction of nylon and closed-cell cushion produces a floorcovering that’s integral, inseparable and impermeable.
Poor acoustics are a major concern for employees, with studies revealing it can take up to 15 minutes to regain concentration after being distracted by unwanted noise. The Powerbond construction is an ideal solution for addressing workplace acoustics because it absorbs sound and is rugged enough to handle heavy loads and excessive rolling traffic. Because of its incredible strength and durability, many of Tarkett’s first customers are still enjoying their Powerbond installations 30, 40 and 50 years later.
