Redesigning Our Products

Interface Hospitality challenges assumptions and brings elegant approaches and innovative technology to the design of modular carpet for guest rooms, corridors and public spaces. By posing different questions, we developed a more holistic view of the impacts our products and processes have on the planet. This has allowed us to be more strategic in minimizing—and ultimately eliminating—the environmental impacts associated with our products.


Biophilia is the theory that humans have a biological need to connect with nature and that this connection affects our well-being, productivity and relationships. It gave rise to biophilic design, an offshoot of the sustainability movement that seeks to integrate nature and structure, even in the most urban spaces. At Interface Hospitality, we use design to bridge the gap between these seemingly divergent environments.


Observing the organic rhythms of a leaf-strewn forest floor inspired us to devise i2, an innovative advancement in modular carpet tile design. Rather than make each carpet tile the same, they vary in patterning and coloring within one style and colorway.

Human Nature

Interface Hospitality’s Human Nature™ Collection—a range of Skinny Plank carpet tiles that remind us of the materials, textures and tones we find in the natural world—is inspired by the vital, mysterious link between the nature as we observe and this same nature within ourselves.

Shape Your Floor with De Stijl

Looking back at historical design movements, one style struck a chord with hospitality product stylist Sarah Pelham in relation to Interface Hospitality’s product dimensions—De Stijl. De Stijl was popular from 1917-1931 and was built on the geometric principle of straight lines, squares and rectangles. Interface Hospitality has developed a collection of square and rectangular products that work together as building blocks that allow you to create your own floor using a combination of sizes.
