At FRONT.design, Interface will showcase its new global collection ‘Look Both Ways’ – celebrating a mix of carpet and LVT. Inspired by composite ground materials, the collection combines hard and soft flooring in one cohesive collection. It brings together playful patterns and urban textures blending seamlessly in a series of striking combinations. Concrete textures find translations on plush carpets and are also mimicked on smooth LVT in simple solid forms. Patterns marry deco carvings with the lightness and joy of confetti. Mineral-based colours are highlighted with subtle metallic flecks and varying infusions of vibrant colours. Visit the Interface stand for a glimpse of this brand-new collection.
