Melodia and Aria
With two visual patterns and 40 color options, this flooring offers excellent wear resistance and low maintenance for less environmental impact. Both Melodia (below left) and Aria (below right) have good depth of color and can be combined for an interesting visual effect.
Manufactured Landscapes Collection
These patterns from Suzanne Tick and Terry Mowers are larger with interesting coordinates. The scale between products is perfect. The imagery is refreshing with a hint to natural order but also nice abstractions. The patterns work well in large spaces without getting lost.

Nurture by Steelcase
I love the simplicity of this thoughtfully designed collection. Tāva’s paired-down aesthetic and clean details work in any contemporary or transitional setting. The comprehensive offering allows you to seamlessly transition from waiting-room to patient-room.
Artisan has a residential appearance and hand, even though it is a solution-dyed fiber construction with Nano-tex. It has a fantastic color offering. Both Hand-Woven (shown) and Spun patterns have a nice textural quality, and the multicolored yarn construction offers depth.
This product is fantastic for pediatric environments. The various designs are fun and engaging, and the glass surface is easy to disinfect, making it ideal for a feature wall in a pediatric setting.
