Dalton – In time for the spring outdoor entertainment season, Shaw Floors has taken cues from some of the nation’s most popular textile designs to create the 2013 fashionable and multi-use Indoor/Outdoor collection. Including 21 styles in a variety of constructions and materials, including turf, tufted loop and needle bond, the sophisticated looks are available for versatile residential and commercial applications and inspire the growing trend toward creating luxurious outdoor spaces.
The 2013 Spring Early Bird Promotion, March 20 to May 3, will also back Shaw’s specialty Indoor/Outdoor collection, a product line of Philadelphia Mainstreet Commercial by Shaw. Special terms, pricing and financing will be made available to Shaw Floors’ flooring retailer partners.

The Indoor/Outdoor collection includes flooring options for a variety of locations, including entrances, porches and patios, putting greens, pool and waterpark surroundings, boat decks, outdoor restaurant spaces and commercial entrance areas. And the floors’ aggressive performance characteristics, such as moisture resistance, fade resistance, mildew resistance and stain resistance, enable each offering to additionally outfit air-locked locations, such as vestibules, garages, dens, locker rooms and utility rooms.
“During the past five years, the expanded ‘outdoor space’ has become a mainstay of the family home that is both fun and functional,” said Quathamer. “In response, we’ve partnered with some of the nation’s top outdoor textile companies to create carpet styles that can easily provide design inspiration. Our 2013 collection goes beyond to embody the unique designs our home enthusiasts are looking to achieve.”
