Chicago, IL (13 June 2012) – At the NeoCon World's Trade Fair yesterday, Mannington Commercial announced the grand prize winner in its tx:style design challenge. Katie Henry of One Eleven Design in Fort Wayne, Indiana was chosen by public vote from among four finalists.
Her design, Stacked Up, was inspired by stacked stone; translated into carpet, the pattern offers abstract organic shapes in structured layers, in a mix of bold and nature-inspired colors.
More than 100,000 votes were cast online and by visitors to Mannington's NeoCon showroom in Chicago. As grand prize winner, Henry will travel to the Milan Furniture Fair later this year as Mannington's guest, as well as earning $7,000 in total prize money and the opportunity to develop a full carpet collection with Mannington's product development team.
