DESIGN FOR ALL KINDS: Durkan Broadens Print Portfolio with Metropolis and Lucia Hospitality Carpet Collections
Marietta, GA, Feb. 02, 2010 - Continually addressing its customers’ needs for leading-edge carpet designs to suit a range of hospitality interiors, Durkan – the hospitality brand of The Mohawk Group – expands its portfolio of patterned carpets with Metropolis and Lucia.
Designers can bring city streets “inside” with Metropolis. The latest collection emerging from Durkan’s collaboration with Top American Designer Todd Oldham, Metropolis draws its inspiration from Oldham’s daily walks through New York City – the bustling metropolis he calls home. The Collection is presented as a modern interpretation of the symbols seen and experienced during every day life in the city. Elements of streets and architecture such as intersections, grates and spires are transformed into Metropolis’ 29 graphic patterns: 15 broadloom patterns, two medallion insets, three corridors, two design border, three rugs and four coordinating, patterned cove base designs.
Looking to create a more calming aesthetic? With Lucia underfoot, hospitality patrons will be whisked into a world that is delicate and refined. Reminiscent of light playing on lace, papery wings and loosely woven fabric, patterns are subtly overlayed and juxtaposed with ethereal and elusively feminine elements for an added air of mystery. Lucia brings a modern transitional feel to hospitality settings with its 17 patterns: 10 broadloom patterns, one medallion inset, one corridor, three design border and two rugs. The Collection is available in print, or with Durkan’s Synthesis™ base grades. Developed from a proprietary, patent pending process, Synthesis layers patterns over texture to bring a never-beforeachieved dimension to hospitality flooring.
