Milliken’s Barbara Haaksma gives her perspective on NeoCon

Barbara Haaksma, VP of design and marketing with Milliken, discusses the global floor covering division’s newest collection – Art Media – with Kemp Harr of Floor Focus. Listen to the interview​ to hear about Cresta Bledsoe’s inspiration for the collection, as well as the story behind the design.


A perfect match of art and technology

A Best of NeoCon Gold award winner for modular carpet, Art Media is a library of patterns that reinterpret iconoclastic modern art techniques and media. The collection explores the floor plane as a canvas for larger-than-life installation art or fine detail that feels like an intimate secret, through the use of advanced digital technology.

Milliken’s proprietary technology allows for precise tile edge-to-edge pattern match, while the tile centers vary. The Art Media collection focuses on the technique of the line in different ways, posing a question to the viewer – where does the art end and technology begin?

Attendance at the show

When asked about attendance at the show, Barbara commented that Milliken saw a lot of traffic from an optimistic audience. The atmosphere in the showroom was full of exciting and positive energy, and visitors consisted of design firms, end users and a large number of international attendees – all seeking inspiration for a variety of commercial spaces. Very exciting!
