The Embodied Beauty™ collection is designed to help restore the health of the planet and lower the carbon footprint of built spaces with style. It features a range of beautiful carpet tile designs, including the first-ever cradle-to-gate carbon negative carpet tiles in three styles: Shishu Stitch™, Tokyo Texture™, and Zen Stitch™. In addition, all seven styles in the collection are carbon neutral across their full product life cycle through Interface’s Carbon Neutral Floors™ program.

The four additional styles – Geisha Gather™, Sashiko Stitch™, Simple Sash™ and Vintage Kimono™ – feature calm, muted grays in warm and cool tones alongside nature-inspired colors for added nuance and sophistication. All of the styles combine and contrast tastefully, installing easily side by side to deliver an integrated flooring solution with timeless appeal.

The collection’s design reflects Japanese aesthetics of minimalism, restoration, and the organic beauty of the natural world. It elicits feelings of connection with others and nature, embracing the principles of ikigai, a Japanese concept related to “having a purpose.”
