GRADUS EXPANDS ITS CONTRACT CARPET COLLECTION

07 September 2006

Gradus Carpets has launched a new addition to its contract carpet collection in the form of Latour Stripes and has re-vamped the colour palette of five of its existing ranges, offering specifiers and contractors more choice and flexibility in carpet specifications.

Latour Stripe has been specifically developed to meet customer demand for a striped design. Thin pencil stripes run across the tiles, which must be laid quarter turn to create a striking checkerboard effect.

The new product is available in both tonal and contrasting colour combinations including: Talmine (red), Stanage (blue), Wetheral (red/grey), Grasmere (blue/green), Rivelin (blue/denim), Alston (grey), Staffin (grey/blue), Morden (grey/beige), Peebles (multi) and Ulverston (grey/green). The contemporary colour palette has been selected to reflect the shades and tones most frequently specified within the target markets.

Four existing ranges from the contract collection - Latour, Bodega, Predator and Freeway - have also been re-coloured for a more up-to-date palette. The enhancement of these stylish yet functional ranges follows extensive colour trend research and assessment of demands within the industry to ensure customers’ requirements are being met. As a result, amongst the five ranges over fifty new shades have been added extending existing colour palettes to include brighter colours such as pumpkin and aubergine as well as incorporating more natural dyes from dark browns and burgundies to contemporary beiges and blues.
