The classic, linear pattern and wide range of color variations make Scan suitable for a variety of project types. The simple cut and loop texture adds depth and durability to this sustainable product.

The rich, dense pile is reminiscent of a custom wool rug, but is constructed in a nylon fiber. Its textural highlights, subtle shimmer, and sophisticated warm neutral colors, give this product a natural, organic feel.

This high pile height carpet has the luxurious look of a handmade rug. The subtle pin dot pattern on a solid background, combined with its tip-sheared construction, create depth in this simple, yet sophisticated product. (Modular version shown directional.)

Base Metal & Bare Earth

The coloring and construction of this pair of flatweave carpets make them my favorite minimalist options. LOVE IT!

3-Square, from the L7 Collection
The lone broadloom offering that came out of Shaw’s collaboration with Bruce Mao Design, 3-square is a tonal, pixelated abstraction that communicates energy and creativity without hitting you over the head with it.

Sisaltech  II

This long-established design is the softer, larger-scaled complement to BaseMetal. The heathered colorways are more classical, and the woven construction is evident and luxurious.
