Mannington Commercial Carpet Design Competition - tx:style

Calling all interior designers and architects - especially if you have 7 years of experience or less! Have you submitted a commercial carpet design to the tx:style design challenge 2009?

Mannington Commercial launched tx:style just this month and will accept entries until February 6, 2009. Simply upload your carpet design idea along with accompanying visuals and a personal written statement articulating what inspired and fueled your design concept.

Pretty cool, don't you think?

It gets cooler, yet. You can still be involved, even if you don't submit a design. By voting online!

In conjunction with the design submissions and through February 15, 2009 you can vote online to help determine the five tx:style finalists.

Then, in late April, you can vote again on the finalists' actual product samples which will be posted to the tx:style website.

If you attend NeoCon 2009, you will be able to see the samples in Mannington Commercial's showroom where voting will continue until the end of the first day of the show.

The winner earns not only a cash prize, but will also have his or her design become a carpet collection in Mannington Commercial's fall carpet line...

Really cool.

I love that the concept for the design competition came from a very successful collaboration that Mannington Commercial had with 25-year old Kaitlin Phelps. The end result was the Adorn Collection which brought a new style and fashion mystique to commercial carpet. No wonder that Bead, from the Adorn Collection, won a Doc Product Award for 2008 as well as the 2008 Designer's Choice Award!

For more information, read the official press release, visit tx:style and either submit, vote or both!
