Endless inspiration from nature
At Milliken, we are constantly inspired by the sheer beauty in nature. Whether it is the interplay of shadows on baren trees during a winter sunset or even the view of Milliken's stunning Arboretum from our Athenaeum, the ideas that come from peering into the natural environment have led to incredible floor covering designs.

Our recently launched Nordic Stories collection also looks to wilderness and interprets the textural landscape and geological extremes of the Northern Hemisphere. With illustrations of metamo​rphic index minerals, the movement of shifting tectonic plates, and hidden plains formed among glaciers and ice caps, the collection uses rich natural colors to provide an interior aesthetic that is uniquely Nordic.
