Introducing West Elm + Shaw Contract 

West Elm style meets Shaw Contract performance. We find ourselves at the intersection of modern design and community—where the boundaries have become inextricably intertwined. And in that space, we’ve forged a collaboration that feels like home.


We’re smitten over Pantone’s 2023 Colour of the Year: Viva Magenta.

This vibrant shade promotes joy and boldness equally, welcoming the spirit of optimism. Its balanced hue creates an elegant visual, reminding us of some of our Dye Lab colours.

What if your flooring choices could help students learn in New Zealand?

In education, learning is the primary focus. When students, faculty, and administration feel at ease in and inspired by their environment, there is a positive impact on the learning process.

We offer an unrivalled breadth of products to serve the needs of students and teachers alike, for clean, comfortable, safe environments and engaging designs. The durability of our flooring lays a lasting foundation for dynamic learning.
