Skelton 1. Johnsonite Melodia and Aria Reader Service No. 215 With two visual patterns and 40 color options, this flooring offers excellent wear resistance and low maintenance for less environmental impact. Both lines have good depth of color and can be combined for an interesting visual effect. 2. Tandus Flooring Manufactured Landscapes Collection Reader Service No. 216 These patterns from Suzanne Tick and Ter Mowers are larger with interesting coordinates. The scale between products is perfect. The image is refreshing with a hint to natural order but also nice abstractions. The patterns work well in large spaces without getting lost. 3. Carolina Business Furniture, a division of OFS Embrace and Silvr Ion Reader Service No. 217 Embrace (shown) offers classic design with a modern feel and nice attention to detail. Silvr Ion is nicely proportioned with a combination of materials and has a good transitional design, allowing it to work in a variety of spaces. healthcare products Contract asks two designers to name and explain their preferred products 2 C stal Martinez 4. Nurture by Steelcase Tāva Reader Service No. 218 I love the simplicity of this thoughtfully designed collection. Tāva’s paired-down aesthetic and clean details work in any contempora or transitional setting. The comprehensive offering allows you to seamlessly transition from waiting-room to patient-room. 5. Pallas Textiles Artisan Collection Reader Service No. 219 Artisan has a residential appearance and hand, even though it is a solution-dyed fiber construction with Nano-tex. It has a fantastic color offering. Both Hand-Woven (shown) and Spun patterns have a nice textural quality, and the multicolored yarn construction offers depth. 6. Skyline Design Kids Glass Reader Service No. 220 This product is fantastic for pediatric environments. The various designs are fun and engaging, and the glass surface is easy to disinfect, making it ideal for a feature wall in a pediatric setting. 4 5 90 contract october 2010 6
