"Being able to release such a superb range of floor coverings as those contained in the Mannington, Milliken and Westbond LWA Archives is fantastic;" commented Andy Fox, Product Content Manager at LightWork Design. "The LightWorks LWA format gives us an unprecedented opportunity to show off the vibrancy and colour of the different flooring possibilities from three of the worlds leading carpet and flooring manufacturers, whilst using the capabilities of LightWorks to really bring out the realism of each texture no matter what the design specifications. "
Tracey Blunsdon of Mannington added, "Working with LightWork Design on this project has given us the opportunity to get our award-winning flooring products in front of designers worldwide, at the specification stage, giving them the perfect opportunity to be utilised in a realistic digital form which was simply not possible before now".
"It is important for us to be at the forefront of new technology if we are to show off our carpets in the best possible way;" said Morten Hansen of Westbond. "By teaming up with LightWork Design, we believe that our carpet range can be shown off in a way befitting the quality of the product and in a variety of situations that the client can choose. We are confident that this will lead to even more great designs using the flexibility that Westbond and LightWorks offer."
