The Portland Project – Wander and Wonder

The Portland Project, from Mannington Commercial, honouree in Interior Design HiP Awards is now available in Australia.

The design team embarked on a week-long exploratory journey of Oregon’s wild, rugged and remote coastline for inspiration for the Portland Project.  Close observation led the design team to three unique styles, where connections become patterns, adventure translates to texture and textile, and a multifaceted colour palette, inspired by the coastal wilderness, brings every element perfectly together.


Visually, the styles recall Oregon’s secluded ridgelines and trailheads, interpreted as sharp linear movements and layered striations of colour in the collection. Hues range from richly saturated to neutral, coastal-inspired grays and browns. Patterns mix large and small scale, and the 12”x48” plank size reinforces the perception of movement from one tile to the next, evoking a sense of wandering and of wonder.

The Portland Collection’s luxurious textures—both loop and tip shear—and thoughtful approach to classic and emerging colour trends make the collection perfect for corporate, hotels, retail, higher education and hospitality projects. The generous variety of styles within the collection allows for interpretation in innovative design compositions: designers can conceptualize and realize their own personal vision for a space, whether a bold combination of colours and patterns or subtle understatement.

The collection is available in 8 colour choices in Antron® Lumena™ solution dyed yarns.  Antron Nylon 6,6 manufactured providing superior stain resistance and appearance retention.  It is also ColorSafe® Bleach Resistant Technology, and XGuard® Stain Resistance Technology, with Limited 15-year Warranty.
