Design Philosophy

Purposeful, authentic design is at the core of Shaw Contract products. Woven into every action and every process is the idea that design has far reaching impacts. Designs examines context, functionality, aesthetics and materiality. Design directly addresses our clients’ needs and desires in inventive and thoughtful ways. Flooring affects how we interact with a space, how we experience it. It must be both enduring and inviting, able to stimulate as a bold statement or blend seamlessly with other architectural elements. Design is our method and our means to both enhance and contribute to the built environment.

Shaw Industries was the first that said the Cradle to Cradle concept actually matters so much, we're just gonna begin and work into this standard that's being developed." - William McDonough
