DESSO® extends ‘Make It Your Own’ collection with ‘Pixelate’ and ‘Metallic shades’ launch

28 September 2017 - Tarkett, a global leader in innovative and sustainable solutions for flooring and sports surfaces, has extended its leading ‘Make it Your Own’ carpet collection by DESSO®, with the launch of two new products; Pixelate and Metallic Shades.

The DESSO® 'Make It Your Own' carpet collection, gives an answer to the growing demand for unique spaces with an individual atmosphere, identity and personality.

The collection has been created to inspire architects and designers to play with and combine textures, colours and material effects to tell their unique story across the floor. The collection already consists of the products Carved and Stitch that were launched earlier this year, and with the launch of Pixelate and Material Shades, the collection will be complete.  


Pixelate is inspired by colour layering, where the eye-catching carpet tiles have a soft gradient design with a transition between two different yarns, one plain and one multi-coloured. The tiles are installed randomly with the gradient of the products appearing in different directions for a truly unique appearance. The multihued yarns also give designers and architects the opportunity to match colours to interior, paint, furniture and wall coverings. Pixelate is available in eight colours.


Metallic Shades

The Metallic Shades range has been created to inspire designers and architects to experiment with lustrous and matte effects. Each colour is available in two different tiles with differing intensity of metallic yarn. The tiles can be used as a single colour on a big surface, or in combination to create zoning and transition between spaces.


The launch of Pixelate and Metallic Shades completes the ‘Make It Your Own’ collection and allows designers even more inspiration to use colour layering and material effects to create truly unique spaces. Architects and designers can also visit the DESSO® Carpet Design Center™ and collaborate with our design team to co-create their very own personalised colour or pattern.
