New collections offer uniquely patterned floor covering


SPARTANBURG, S.C. -  Milliken announces Consequence 2.0 and Yarn Storm, two new collections from the global floor covering division. The introductions provide designers with innovative floor covering solutions - to create unique interior aesthetics through multi-dimensional patterning and color. 


Consequence 2.0 – Inspired by strength seen in the layers of bird nests, Consequence 2.0 illustrates a classic linear approach by combining visual and physical textures. Layers of tonal colors with undulating lines feature multi-directional patterning and design. Both elegant and functional, the collection builds on the strength of a modern and diverse structure to offer a strong foundation for any interior design. Additionally, the collection features a total recycled content of 24 percent.


The collection is available in: 

  • ​​​Two patterns – Sequel and Upshot - for a variety of scale and linear movement.
      • An expanded color line featuring 24 shades, available in both patterns.
      • Module carpet tile (50 cm x 50 cm and 1 meter x 1 meter).
      • Standard with ComfortPlus® ES cushion backing system.


Yarn Storm – Celebrate the world as an art gallery when enveloped in bold, colorful patterning with Yarn Storm. The collection illustrates horizontal and vertical explorations of hand-knit textures that balance chaos with precision on the floor plane. The solution dyed nylon construction offers a new perspective of linear designs and features a total recycled content of 50 percent.

  • Utilizes Econyl yarns by Aquafil, the world’s first and only 100 percent sustainable polymer.
  • Available in module carpet tile (50 cm x 50 cm).
  • Features 16 colors that coordinate with Milliken’s Southern Analog and Sound and Fury collections, while making a bold individual statement.
