Bentley Prince Street Introduces Modern Motion™ – The Latest Carpet Collaboration with Robert A.M. Stern Architects

Modern Motion Represents the 9th Series in the Long-Running Design Collaboration

[City of Industry, CA – August 22, 2012]  Bentley Prince Street is proud to introduce Modern Motion, the ninth carpet collection designed in collaboration with Robert A.M. Stern Architects. Modern Motion features a lively large-scale pattern of intertwining spheres with an elegant color line and is available in broadloom, carpet tile and area rugs. Modern Motion coordinates beautifully with bestselling product Modern Block™ and is designed to visually enhance corporate, healthcare, hospitality and educational settings.

“It’s been a privilege to collaborate with Robert Stern and his associates all these years,” says Anthony Minite, president.  “They understand the marketplace and are successful in identifying the right products to deliver at the right time.  For nine years we have been making products that are artfully designed, well received and continue to sell for us.”

Robert A.M. Stern Architects aimed to create a whimsical design that would coordinate with the best-selling colors in Modern Block. Bentley Prince Street’s design team shared their vision and went to work developing the intricate, swirling design that is Modern Motion.  This product is made with Antron Lumena® solution dyed cf nylon with TruBlend™ fiber technology and is available in eight standard colorways.
