Hotels aren’t just places to sleep—the modern home away from home serves as a place to gather, to connect, to explore. Shaw Contract’s Forum was designed for this rapidly evolving hospitality-centric environments.
Featuring a subtle palette of light, neutral tones, interspersed with calligraphic lines in a rich black, to create an aesthetic range from artful notes of contrast to harmonious blends, the collection is available in a distinctive set of 17 broadloom patterns and 10 18 in. x 36 in. carpet tile patterns.
Contemporary clean lines blend with patterns that have a soft painterly edge in an inspired fusion of textures and large-scale geometry. The designs include lines that merge and overlap, bold curves and strong graphical elements that make it highly adaptable at all scales. Tactile comfort alludes to sisal, jute and natural handwoven references meant to add a crafted feel and a tangible sense of well-being.
In addition to the broadloom and tile patterns, the Forum collection explores shape and form through four distinctive rugs, designed to inspire and suggest custom opportunities.
Alyssa Gagnon, designer for Shaw Contract, said, “The designs are a fusion of cultural and craft influences, using pattern and texture to evoke a sense of well-being, but also as a means of visual stimulation.”
