our places, and our places shape us…
Traditional wisdom tells us there is no
place like home. But what if home was not simply a place but a state of mind?
Shaw Contract has recently launched the
Haven collection. Showcased at Clerkwenwell Design Week 2018 and at NeoCon
2018, Haven reimagines home as a mood or idea intimately tied to our
instinctual desire to feel grounded in the world. Haven uses colour, texture
and pattern to conjure the warmth of home in all the places we visit.
Haven draws its inspiration from the
qualities we associate with home – comfort, well-being, warmth, softness and a
profound sense of place. In design and construction, it evokes the supple
texture of a favourite sweater or a graceful woven fabric.
The patterns in the Haven line are designed
to maximum versatility. Bold or understated, monochromatic or multi-coloured,
Haven provides endless opportunities for creative expression, and brings the
feeling of home to all the places life takes us.
“We develop design solutions not merely by
researching trends but by placing those trends in the context of broader
cultural shifts. We see design as an expression of the way we live today. The
Haven collection celebrates the increasing fluidity between our work life and
our home life,” says John Crews, Design Manager, Lifestyle Studio at Shaw
Haven's plank carpet tiles provide the
tools to create a specific sense of place in an endless array of settings. In
workplace, hospitality and education applications, these products are design to
complement one another, weaving a coherent narrative of colour and pattern that
is unique to the Haven collection.
Custom tiles lay the groundwork for an
inspiring hotel experience from check in to check out. Designers can customise
both colours and patterns. With plush cut-and-loop construction, Haven custom
carpet tile can lay the perfect foundation for a comfortable guest room
