carpet is committed to being the “single source, total solution” for commercial
floorcoverings. Lees is one of the most experienced and respected carpet makers
in America. Founded in 1846, the company is headquartered in Greensboro, N.C.,
with primary manufacturing facilities located in Glasgow, Va.
Lees carpet prides itself on being the trendsetter for the most innovative
designs and colors in the carpet industry. Bright lights, loud cars, constant
motion and change: these elements of city life are the source of inspiration for
Lees’ newest collaborative effort, the rbn™ (pronounced: urban) carpet
collection. It is Representative of Lees’ “out of the box” innovations and
commitment to bring the most unique and progressive flooring products to market.
The company’s latest endeavor involved collaboration with students of North
Carolina State University’s (NCSU) College of Design, who developed initial
designs for the Collection. The resulting designs illustrate Lees’ commitment to
carpet innovation and reflect the design students’ connection to the new
cutting-edge, technology-driven, kinetic city environment.
Lees created rbn™ broadloom carpet as an alternative floor covering product with
high-impact aesthetics. Lees takes pride in showing designs that are based on
concepts created by the NC State design students representing three different
disciplines – graphic design, industrial design and textile design. These
students collaborated to envision and create designs for the collection that
result in a carpet unlike any other on the market today.
Lees “rbn™ carpet is the next generation of our commitment to the development
of fresh and innovative carpet collections. The designs combine the creativity
and expertise of undergraduate and graduate students, studying three design
disciplines, providing a breadth of design ideas and vision to the project. The
resulting designs for this collection are perfect for designers who desire to
make a fresh, bold statement in facilities such as corporate or retail
environments. We are proud to give prominent recognition to N C State
University and these design students at its College of Design.
Lees design staff, drawing its inspiration from delicate floral and organic
patterns, combined with a blend of modern simplicity and sophistication,
ModaVation introduces its newest collection of carpeting, the Chatei
Collection. Designed for hospitality public spaces, suites, convention and
meeting spaces, as well as country clubs and senior living facilities, the
luxurious cut-pile collection provides the perfect transitional look for
traditional environments needing a chic, modern flair.
Chatei means ‘the garden through which guests walk’ in Japanese, and is
befitting to this elegant collection of modern organic carpets. The intricately
defined patterns, in both medium and large scales, are enhanced with ModaVation
by our unique yarn options, including tonal space dyed yarns, metallic accent
yarns, and varying textures, created by incorporating heat-set and non-heat-set
Inspired by primary colors as uncomplicated as those found in crayon boxes, Colorburst broadloom carpeting is featured in 12 bold colorations and
lends itself to any interior. All twelve colors feature a space dyed yarn
designed with either bright primary colors or jewel tones that pop randomly from
complementary backgrounds, offering a simple way to balance other finishes in a
setting. The variety of colors gives this carpet a broad appeal for many
markets, from educational to retail.
