Desso, a Tarkett brand, has extended its leading ‘Make it Your Own’ carpet collection with the launch of two new product ranges: Pixelate and Metallic Shades. The collection combines textures, colours and material effects to give designers limitless opportunities to create unique spaces.

Inspired by colour layering, Pixelate is available in eight colours. Offering the best of both worlds, the Pixelate carpet tiles have a soft gradient design with a transition between two different yarns, one plain and one multi-coloured. The tiles are designed to be installed randomly with the gradient of the products appearing in different directions for a unique appearance.

The Metallic Shades range is aimed to inspire the design community to experiment with lustrous and matte effects. The ten colours, which include Copper Mauve, Silver Black, Gold Griege, Silver Light and Pearl Beige, are each available in two different tile formats with differing intensity of metallic yarn. The tiles can be used as a single colour on a large surface, or in combination to create zoning and transition between spaces.

In keeping with Desso’s Cradle to Cradle philosophy, all products in the ‘Make It Your Own’ collection are delivered with EcoBase backing that is 100% recyclable.
