Natural Nuances:wide ranging tones

Designed with the purpose of softening urban interiors, thesubtle contrasts and muted shades of the Natural Nuances yarn composition provide a perfect backdrop for industrial materials such as concrete and steel. An extensive selection of grey and beige hues makes it easy to find the perfect colour match, as well as presenting wide-ranging options to create zones using colour across the floor.

Innovation begins in Desso's Design Centre

The choice of 48 colours have been selected after an extensive colour study, carried out in Desso's Design Center™. 

“The starting point for creating Natural Nuances was expanding the range of options for our clients by offering an unparalleled range of neutral colours. From our many conversations with architects and designers, we have learned that we need to provide them with a freedom of choice and that is exactly what this collection brings.”

Ludwig Cammaert, ‎Design & Technical Development Director at Desso

With this selection, architects and designers can now add the exact tone to a minimalistic palette or create a tonal look by combining several shades within one room or building. 

A positive contribution to the environment

The Natural Nuances collection also provides an answer to the current desire for an honest, transparent and more responsible approach towards the use of materials. The extensive range of colours are made with ECONYL® yarn: a 100% regenerated nylon made from recovered waste materials such as fishing nets and yarn waste from our carpet recycling centre

A selection of colours have EcoBase™ backing containing upcycled re-engineered calcium carbonate (chalk) from local drinking water companies.  The backing is 100% recyclable in Desso's own production process. In addition, all colours from the Natural Nuances collection are available with EcoBase™ backing on request. The collection is - in line with all of Desso's collections - certified Cradle to Cradle® Silver or Bronze, ensuring that the products contribute positively to the environment, human health and are designed to be recycled in a non-toxic closed loop.
