Fine Detail: The flooring collection made with metallic yarns

BCFA member Milliken, let it shine with launch of ‘Fine Detail’ flooring collection made with metallic yarns. Milliken’s latest carpet tile collection ‘Fine Detail’ subtly incorporates gold, rose-gold, silver and copper metallic yarns to bring a sprinkling of luxury to any interior. 

Launched September 2018 Fine Detail is formed of two designs: ‘Metallic Joinery’ and ‘Stitchwork’ offered in a 25 x 100cm plank format. There are 10 colour options within the collection including ‘Spun Gold’, ‘Burnished Copper’ and ‘Silver Twist’. Inspiration comes from artistic embroidery and glittering jewels, but contrasted with functional stitching to give a decorative yet handcrafted feel.

The neutral greys, blues and browns that make up the background colours are brought to life with flourishes of lustrous and shimmering metallic accents. Fine Detail fuses the luxurious and precious appeal of the metallic yarn component with a commercial and useable combination of pattern and colour to give a highly specifiable collection that can work within any interior.


The Fine Detail carpet plank collection was designed by one of Milliken’s in-house designers Kerry Cottam. As part of the collection’s creation Kerry produced a range of developmental artwork playing with the shimmering effects of metallic paint and exploring the outline patterns of jewellery. The resulting experimental and audacious lines could be replicated on the carpet surface thanks to Milliken’s state-of-the-art tufting technology.


Fine Detail is made using ECONYL® 100% regenerated yarn reducing resource consumption and waste. The cushion backing not only offers underfoot comfort but also improves acoustics. The carpet planks’ backing is made from 90% recycled content cushion backing. To further reduce its environmental impact, Fine Detail can be supplied with TractionBack® for adhesive free installation, improving indoor air quality and reducing materials usage.
