Down to Earth is a carbon neutral carpet tile collection designed and manufactured in the UK by Milliken. The manufacturer say the range was created with the wellbeing of all its users in mind, with particular attention to the needs of the neurodiverse workforce. The flooring can help to create calming, restorative spaces that take the needs of all a building’s occupants into account.

The Down to Earth carpet tile collection is inspired by natural textures and patterns. Influences taken from fallen leaves and twigs, swaying branches, scattered light and natural shadows have been developed into a series of patterns. The collection is made up of two ‘background’ designs – Grounded and Enlightened – and two layered ‘motif’ designs, Leaf and Twig. www.millikencarpet.com

The collection is available in a matt or polished finish, and a choice of five colours: Ivory, Pink, Green, Blue, and Black. www.stoneandceramicwarehouse.co.uk
