Traverse New to the Carpetecture® family – delivering diagonal delight Inspired by iconic Modernism, the Traverse range of carpet designs, part of the Essentials collection, features simple diagonal lines. These are created by slight differences in dye hues but also by slight ridges in the yarn construction. Hence, the pattern you see depends on where you are in the room together with where the light source is coming from. And, as you move around, the effect is subtle dynamism, with floor areas exchanging emphasis caused by the faint alternating light and shade. Just two sets of diagonals – sloping down from left to right and the mirror opposite – enable the designer to create classic herringbone and ashlar patterns, but that’s just the start. By using irregular patterns, the designer can play with directions, rhythms and zones, giving simple lines a curiously unexpected rich personality. Traverse is available in 15 colours, providing unprecedented creative design possibilities. Add to that the plank format and the simple diagonals become a kaleidoscope of opportunity. Who would have thought that minimalistic lines could offer such creative freedom?
