Get Inspired

At Tarkett, we understand the importance of design excellence. From luxury hotels to local restaurants and city bars - creating the perfect guest experience starts with the interior design. Each project tells its own unique story, setting the ambience from the moment you step inside.

Explore the latest trends below to seek inspiration for your next project. Curated by our dedicated team of in-house designers, see how they translate simple design cues into one-of-a-kind carpet patterns.

Basic Shapes

Let abstract modernity inspire your next design project through the use of simple, yet striking shapes - such as circles, squares, and triangles - combining them to create unique geometric patterns.  Allow one element to do the talking, or combine straight and curved edges in varying sizes for a cubism-influenced, multidimensional effect. Let your imagination take the reins and incorporate the use of daring primary shades into the mix to drastically alter the mood of any setting - allowing you to create something completely out of the ordinary.

Add a touch of elegance to your design with elements derived from the baroque style - a classic, chic aesthetic that’s certain to bring an immediate high-end feeling to any space. Radiate timeless appeal with flooring influenced by iridescent pearls and oysters, whilst bringing rich, dramatic tones of bronze, gold and silver into the colour scheme to evoke a feeling of luxury and drama.
