Vendor Feature: Mohawk Group



Mohawk Group, the commercial arm of one of the largest carpet manufacturers in the world, Mohawk Industries, has solidified their position at the top of the pack. With cutting edge designs, innovative manufacturing processes, and a passion for sustainability, Mohawk Group is a great choice for a variety of commercial interior applications.

Street Thread Collection

One of Mohawk’s newest and most unique collections of carpet tile, Street Thread, takes urban design and puts in on the floor. With geometric and linear patterns reminiscent of graffiti, the 4 styles of the Street Thread Collection complement each other for a funky & fun installation. All constructed with Duracolor Premium Nylon, the styles each come in 8 colorways with a foundation of varying shades of gray highlighted by vibrant accent colors such as red, yellow, blue and magenta.

“Off The Wall” has a high-fashion geometric design compromised of small squares diagonally placed across each carpet tile. With linear striations, best suited as drop-in accents with “Off The Wall”, the” Pop Icon” style has a wonderful shading transition from neutral gray to exciting brights. “Super Fresh” has a curvy, circular pattern based off artwork by Queen Andrea, quoting lyrics from John Lennon’s “Imagine”. The last style in the Street Thread Collection, “Taped Off”,  has a stand-out linear pattern with varying thicknesses, mirroring the look of spray painting over tape.

Available in 9 color ways ranging from neutral grays, tans, and browns – the collection is constructed from Colorstrand SD Nylon Fiber.

Mohawk Group: Making A Difference

With company roots existing for over 150 years, Mohawk Group has positioned themselves to be one of the most community-involved carpet manufacturers around the world. The company manufactures products from post-consumer recycled materials, such as water bottles. A matter of fact, one of their recycling facilities “recycles 3 billion plastic bottles per year, the equivalent of 20 percent of all bottles in the domestic post-consumer market,” to be converted to Everstrand carpet. In 2001, Mohawk started “Specify For A  Cure“, a campaign to give back to Susan G. Komen For The Cure. When you specify 500 yards of carpet or more from any of the seven eligible Mohawk Group carpet collections or any Durkan print carpet, the company pledges to donate $.25 per square yard of carpet sold to Susan G. Komen. These community programs are just the beginning of many amazing environmental and community outreach programs sponsored by Mohawk Group. We encourage you to visit their website at to learn more about the amazing things this great manufacturer is doing!

Flooring & Design Trends for 2014

Even though it’s been cold here in the Northeast, there are a lot of flooring and design trends heating up in the new year. We’re excited to share some of our favorite trends for the coming year and look forward to seeing how our favorite designers and companies implement these trends in the coming months!

Reclaimed Wood Floors

Back in September, we discussed some of our favorite wood installs, including reclaimed wood. This eco-friendly product is extremely versatile and can be used in homes, offices, and restaurant applications. Here at Consolidated, we have formed a partnership with local urban forestry pioneer company Citilog, who upcycles and repurposes urban trees into wood flooring, cabinetry, and millwork. The product, much like other reclaimed and restored wood that is installed as flooring, is a beautiful and rustic – providing charm and warmth to any space.

Industrial Design

Industrial finishes have been booming in popularity over the past several months. From dark wood and exposed brick to metal detailing and lighting, many corporate workplaces have adopted this aesthetic in their offices. The sparse and simplistic design is often contrasted with pops of color in accessories, as seen in the photo below. Our favorite aspect of the industrial trend is the move to using more concrete flooring in the spaces. With finished or stained concrete floors, spaces can be uniquely transformed.

As carpet and resilient products evolve, the shapes and installation methods introduced in the market have created some of our favorite trends. Plank shapes are one of the trends that we are looking forward to seeing more of in 2014. Carpet manufacturers like Interface have plank styles that can be installed in traditional brick and ashlar methods, as well as herringbone patterns. Mohawk Group encourages the installation of their patterned tiles to form plank patterns. The style options are endless with these designs!

Vibrant Colors

In markets like ours in New York City, neutrals have been king for years. More frequently than ever, we are seeing pops of color in the workplace – enhancing way finding throughout the space, creating focal points, and distinguishing collaborative areas from other spaces. In many cases, colors that are found in the organization’s logo are added to the design of the space to create heightened brand awareness in the office culture.
