New York—Tarkett will showcase its expertise in design and innovation across multiple flooring materials at BDNY, to be held here Nov. 10-11.
Taking full advantage of its best-in-class custom design capabilities, Tarkett’s two new concept collections—nowHaus and Gironde—will showcase the artistic talents of individual creators, Amy Jaekel and Nolan Beck Rivera, bringing their visions to life in vivid detail.
“Tarkett has built a unique platform for hospitality and allowing our clients to execute their design ideas by being the only one-stop-shop for custom design in Axminster, broadloom, carpet tile, LVT and even millwork base,” said Paul Cleary, president, Tarkett Hospitality division. “It all comes together at BDNY in our celebration of 100 years of Bauhaus.”
Designer Nolan Beck Rivera recently spent two weeks immersed in the Gironde region of Bordeaux with its weathered patinas, eroded bricks and lichen-covered stones. A photo catalogue of textures became a tablet of sketches and then the latest trend collection for Tarkett Hospitality. This suite of organic patterns pays homage to the unwavering passing of time, and comes to life in a soothing palette of moss and blush tones.
Each pattern showcases Tarkett’s world-class technology and custom design capabilities. With coordinating carpet and resilient surfaces, designers are able to carry this European-inspired aesthetic throughout a property, including guest rooms and public spaces. The collection includes four woven broadloom patterns and three luxury vinyl flooring patterns for a variety of scale, texture and performance. The LVT designs are offered on Tarkett’s Contour construction, featuring the company’s proprietary Techtonic polyurethane technology over a 32-mil wear layer for maximum protection and durability.

Bauhaus philosophy—arguably the most significant design movement of the modern age—turns 100 years old this year. As longtime admirers of all things Bauhaus and its visionary creators, Tarkett celebrates this timeless centurion with nowHAUS Collection, a bold new flooring collection inspired by its iconic shapes and patterns. Just as our Bauhaus mentors taught, these designs marry handmade artisanship with industrial innovation and beauty with practical application. Luxurious tufted broadloom and Axminster carpet patterns coordinate with high-definition, digitally printed LVT, giving designers cohesive soft surface and resilient solutions that carry this eye-catching aesthetic throughout the property.
The nowHaus collection showcases Tarkett’s custom design capabilities in a variety of scales and flooring platforms, with six Vivid Broadloom patterns, three woven Axminster patterns and one Axminster tile pattern. Two LVT flooring patterns are offered on Tarkett’s Contour construction, featuring the company’s proprietary Techtonic polyurethane technology over a 32-mil wear layer for maximum protection and durability.
Products that will also be on display at BDNY include:
- ProGen LVT for hospitality
