BRINGING VINTAGE RUGS BACK TO LIFE.

Inspired by the emerging trend of updating vintage rugs into more traditional and modern visuals.

Our newest carpet tile collection Crafted Surface offers three 18” x 36” styles which add visual and tactile texture to our running line of soft surface solutions. 

Product Designer Linnzi Rich’s inspiration for Crafted Surface stemmed from her desire to add textural warmth throughout a space, which led her to an overdyed process: distress a vintage or antique rug; remove the original color; and then re-dye the carpet to bring the pattern back to life.  

The distressed, textural patterns of the various styles within the Crafted Surface collection contain subtle neutrals and bold brights, lending themselves well to a variety of end-use spaces, including corporate, retail, multi-family and higher education. Available in 12 total colorways, Crafted Surface provides flexibility for end-use design as the mix of neutrals and bright accents can be used for branding, wayfinding and color blocking.

The subtle distressing of Tapis provides an ornate, vintage rug look great for lounge-like spaces as the coordination of the motif + accent colors can increase the warmth and add comfort to any commercial space. 

Overlayer features a positive-negative organic grid that can transform space through the celebration of organic movement with a more prominent distressing visual. 

Heirloom Tweed offers an all-over boucle type texture that reflects the natural texture of a vintage rug that has been overdyed. Having a high-contrast yarn come through to the surface of the carpet enhances its textural feel but also creates a high-performing product. 

As with all of our EcoWorx-backed products, Crafted Surface is fully recyclable, Cradle to Cradle certified, and manufactured in a carbon-neutral facility.
