Take interiors down two paths with Milliken’s Walk the Line Collection

New linear modular floor covering challenges the status quo


SPARTANBURG, S.C., April 2, 2014 – Milliken introduces the Walk the Line collection, a modular carpet with an open linear pattern that brings sophisticated movement to the floor plane. Colorful accent options from bright pops to neutrals add versatility to the range of interior aesthetics possible through the design. 

Walk the Line brings the straight path of the roadway to interiors. Sharp, contrasting lines in varying tones invite designers to obey the rules or find their freedom. Neutral and graphic or fast and furious with a splash of color, the balance of vivid accents and asphalt-like background are sure to inspire the journey ahead.

Features and benefits include:

  • Available in 16 colors
  • Modular carpet tile (50 cm x 50 cm)
  • Tufted, loop construction of Universal® Fibers Solution-Dyed Nylon Type 6,6
  • Severe traffic end-use rating
  • PVC-Free UnderscoreTM ES Cushion standard backing and can be specified with Underscore​TM ESP Cushion backing
  • 31 percent Total Recycled Content


“Linear floor patterns infuse a sophisticated and structured base for interiors with the illusion of movement,” notes Barbara Haaksma, vice president of design and marketing for Milliken’s global floor covering division. “The broad range of base and accent colors coupled with quick linear striations allow designers to facilitate an intriguing, custom-inspired environment with the ease of a standard collection.”



Walk the Line is available with Milliken’s unique TractionBack® technology. TractionBack® simplifies floor covering installation with an environmentally superior alternative backing system for laying modular carpet tile. TractionBack®’s high-friction coating requires no additional tools for installation and uses fewer materials and energy than traditional methods. There is no ‘peel,’ just ‘stick’ with TractionBack®’.
