(pictured above) For Mohawk Industries’ new product design center, which will be their very own Living Building Challenge project and the first registered in the southeast, they went with the sustainability focused company’s very own carpet, Tranquil Beauty.


The Living Building Challenge’s first paint company to win listing with the organization, ECOS, was an obvious choice. Their prestigious “Declare” labeling came because of the company’s transparency of ingredients, safety, and eco-friendliness.


The Dalton, Georgia-based design center will feature Daltile’s pearl grey polished marble. Considering the company offers an “unmatched wealth” of online tools that make it easier for customers to determine how Daltile projects can achieve LEED, it’s a great (and green) fit.

Chicago Faucets

This company’s EQ faucets make saving water look good with its latest line of EQ electric faucets. The new center will feature the curved series for a design as sleek as it is sustainable.


Toto is generously donating toilet fixtures to the project. At the time of print, Toto President Bill Strang was still determining which styles would work best, but we do known that these are the first toilets to have been issued a Declare label, essentially the “nutrition label” for the building industry.”

Teknion studio

Also with a Declare label is Teknion Studio, whose workstations and office furniture will populate the inside the center. Mohawk chose the brand’s District Desks and Interpret workstations and will also use their Projk Synchro-Tilt Task Chairs.
