Atlas_Logo_A_RGBLos Angeles—Atlas has launched the Epic collection, featuring four patterns constructed on the company’s unique Ultraweave true cut and loop tufting platform. The four patterns will be available in carpet tile, broadloom and area rugs. In addition, the Epic collection is Atlas’ initial release revealing the company’s new brand identity. The new look reflects a fresh and modern appearance for this well-established style leader, that is known for noteworthy design and quality in the commercial arena.

The Epic collection features “out of this world” patterns, colors and textures that were inspired by the unique and natural splendor of meteorite rocks. The four distinctive designs—Arenite, Frontier, Meteorite and Sandstone—offer style and dimension to the floor, while creating flexibility in design. Available in 16 colorways, the sophisticated color palette offers a rich selection of complex neutrals along with vibrant accent tones. The dense cut and loop construction produced on Ultraweave technology allows for a wide range of applications and is suitable for corporate, hospitality, multi-family and beyond.

Atlas’ new identity was recently showcased last month at Boutique Design Fair in New York City and NeoCon East in Philadelphia. The new marketing components include contemporary, white architect folders with a soft-touch finish and a classic blue and warm gray logo, new collection brochures featuring enhanced carpet tile, broadloom and area rug photography, an updated website, new business collateral, promotional items as well as a new advertising campaign that will launch in 2018.

Patcraft introduces Material Paradox

Patcraft_Material__Paradox_Nocturne590_Backlit779_Final copyCartersville, Ga.—Patcraft recently launched Material Paradox, its newest modular collection. Available in 18 x 36 and 9 x 36 planks and 10 colors, Material Paradox is inspired by the interaction between light and material and how it influences the way we view texture.

By using light to enhance the pattern and add textural and visual depth, Material Paradox products are combined with color filters that are overlaid to create scale and contrast to achieve balance within a space. The products are designed with texture and tip shearing to produce a collection that has a rich, tactile feel. The distinctiveness and depth of the product bring in light, materiality and sensory finishes that highlight a sense of fluidity and movement.

“Material Paradox demonstrates the interplay between light and dark and how they change the dynamic of a space,” said Shannon Cochran, Patcraft vice president, creative and design. “The design team created coordinating patterns that work together to create transitions and contrasts, explore combinations to punctuate spaces and create moods. The patterns are a soft, muted ombre with hints of shadows that create a perceived texture that complements function and style.”

Constructed with Eco Solution Q and EcoWorx backing, Material Paradox is Cradle to Cradle certified. Products are backed with a lifetime warranty against stain, colorfastness to light, static and abrasive wear for maximum performance and appearance retention.

A delicate, powerful balance of elements, Material Paradox highlights how whole worlds are brought to life in black and white and in light and shadow. The collection plays with the concept of conversing inverses and discovering harmony in tension.
