Emerging Directions is a 24” x 24” modular carpet tile collection of two styles that have pronounced textural patterns, all inspired by the Swedish concept of Lagom. This is a lifestyle principle of living a balanced life with appreciation for the humble things around you. The word Lagom means “just the right amount”, and this was the driving inspiration for the patterns, leaving the user of a space with the sense of things being just right – not too stimulating, and yet not too quiet. This results in a sense of belonging to a place and being at peace in your environment. The textural quality of the carpet plays a role in this sense too, with loops that are reminiscent of natural fibers and textural knit stitch work.
