Mohawk says it’s taking Manhattan this summer with a series of high profile events with some of the largest consumer lifestyle magazines in the business.
Mohawk is part of a summer social schedule featuring green design projects, celebrity chefs and designers, fresh ideas, and flooring.
Country Living 2010 House of the YearCountry LivingMagazine looks to shake things up by building "The Hudson," its 2010 House of the Year, in lower Manhattan's World Financial Center.
Named after its close proximity to the Hudson River on 220 Vesey Street, the “Hudson” is a two-bedroom, two-and-a-half bathroom, 1,600-square-feet home that embodies “green living with classic country style.”
The Hudson represents a joint effort of LEED-certified, modular green home designs by Country Living and New World Home called the Country Living Collection. Features include fireplaces, oversize windows, and an open floor plan that fully integrates the greenest products and practices available today.
Mohawk is participating in the project with two products: Mohawk EverStrand™ carpet featuring 100% post consumer recycled content from soft drink bottles, and reclaimed Zanzibar antique elm wood, a hardwood floor that uses reclaimed lumber from age old dismantled buildings.
Country Living Home was unveiled June 3 and be open to the public from June 4-17. To learn more, visit Mohawkhere.
