Clerkenwell Open

7th & 8th September, 2022


Milliken will be one of the showrooms taking part in Clerkenwell Open: a new event facilitated and managed by The British Contract Furnishing Association and Women in Office Design from Thursday 9th to Friday 10th September. At Milliken’s Berry Street showroom visitors will be able to discover the story of Northward Bound: a carbon neutral carpet tile collection. Milliken’s RIBA accredited tour: ‘A Journey to WELL Platinum Certification’ is also available by pre-registering in advance. 

Northward Bound is the first European collection in Milliken’s D/LUX series. The D/LUX series is so named because it’s all about creating a high performance luxurious carpet that uses less raw materials (thus reducing embodied carbon) with no compromise on aesthetics. This is achieved by carefully considering materials, innovating with fibre suppliers and pioneering use of yarn systems and tufting technology. Doing more with less is in harmony with Milliken’s ethos to “do good” and the company’s unswerving ethical approach to corporate social responsibility and sustainability.

The carpet tile collection is made up of three designs: Snow, Glacier and Ice – inspired by a laid-back and understated Scandi aesthetic (a look that has driven several Milliken collections in recent years). A warm and cool neutral palette, varying scales across the three patterns, minimalist designs and soft flowing organic forms all help to generate a feeling of calm movement across the floor plane. Northward Bound was designed to stand alone or be combined with Milliken’s now classic and bestselling collections: Nordic Stories collection or, for more premium areas, the Arctic Survey collection.

Despite its sophisticated styling, Northward Bound is competitively priced to meet the needs of current market conditions. It’s highly rated for heavy traffic areas and the acoustic technology employed through the integral cushion backing, that is offered as standard, significantly reduces noise distractions, proving that practicality and luxury are not mutually exclusive.

Northward Bound is made using 100% Solution Dyed Nylon. It comes with Comfort Lite cushion backing as standard (90% recycled content) and is available with TractionBack® pressure sensitive adhesive on request, improving Indoor Air Quality and offering a more flexible installation process. Northward Bound carpet tiles are manufactured in the UK in a ISO14001 certified location using renewable sources. The collection is CRI Green Label Plus certified for indoor air quality, EPD verified and TUV certified. Northward Bound comes with a 12 year wear guarantee and a lifetime antistatic guarantee.
