This month, Los Angeles will welcome Greenbuild – the world’s largest conference and expo dedicated to green building – to our eco-savvy city. For more than 30 years, Bentley has operated in L.A., manufacturing our carpet to California’s progressive environmental criteria, the country’s strictest standards. It’s a challenge we’ve embraced. It’s shaped our approach to sustainability, embedding eco-thinking and action into not only our design and production processes but also our culture.
Bentley is committed to collaboration – and embraces its transformative impact on confidence, productivity, and growth. To help its clients tap into the positive power of collaboration, the leading California commercial carpet manufacturer partnered with Antron and Banding People Together to compose a CEU-accredited event for 75 designers, held September 27th in L.A. at the Edison.
Say hello to Libby Cook, Bentley’s Director of Product Development Operations, otherwise known as our Trendcaster. With a textile design education and background, Libby worked for various West Coast interiors and garment fabric companies for a few years before transitioning to the carpet industry in the late 1980s.
Sales – they’re what makes the business go ‘round. But it takes more than just high style, high quality products to build the bottom-line…
At NeoCon 2016, Bentley debuted its (los)t angeles Collection as well as revealed a sneak peek into the Bentley Design Studio. Check out our NeoCon showrooms and awards here!
Every city is a story of juxtaposition – of conquest and sin; loss and growth; decay and renewal. Los Angeles is no different, a sprawling, open book that somehow manages to be gritty and razor-sharp while living up to its laid-back, sun-drenched bohemian reputation. Through the lens of our latest carpet collection, Bentley contrives the next chapter of our narrative with (los)t angeles.
Runway trends influence all aspects of life – from the clothes we wear and the accessories we choose, to how we design our homes and outfit our workspaces. Carpet style is no exception. At Bentley, we’ve long subscribed to the mantra that carpet is fashion for the floor. It’s no longer solely utilitarian. Sure, it needs to perform. But it also needs to inspire. Take a peek at a few trends that are defining the world of fashion – and guiding some of the latest designs in contract carpet.
Held from June 13-15 at The Mart in Chicago, NeoCon has evolved into one of the most recognized and attended trade shows in the industry and this year will be no exception. Join us at our Merchandise Mart booth #1098 and at our Kinzie showroom across The Mart, 220 W Kinzie St. Suite 200, for our NeoCon events!
Color is more powerful than most of us give it credit for. It can inspire and move you (literally and mentally); elicit emotion and even give you a pop of productivity. But the perception that bold, vibrant colors aren’t chic and classy is as much a myth as the idea that neutrals are dull and boring. Quite the opposite – and the trends we’re seeing in muted shades and tone-on-tones are proof.
When Bentley Mills started writing its story more than 35 years ago, of course, no one knew exactly what the chapters would share, the twists and turns we would navigate, the peaks and valleys we would explore. But here we are today: California born and raised, the largest carpet manufacturer in the state and proudly producing quality, luxe products out of our LEED®-EBOM Gold certified facility. The same facility we’ve occupied since 1979.
