SOLON, OHIO, May 2, 2018 — Tarkett, a worldwide leader in innovative and sustainable flooring and sports surface solutions, is premiering Soft Silence, the newest hospitality carpet collection from Desso, at HD Expo in Las Vegas May 1–4.

Soft Silence Collection delivers an update for the romantic spirit. Its inspirational palette features soothing blues, blushy pinks, and warm neutrals that melt together in soft surface flooring that’s perfect for lobbies, ballrooms, hallways, and everything in between.

You can design an indulgent dreamscape with Soft Silence.”
