Mohawk Carpet Wins Home Depot Innovation Award

MohawkATLANTA-Mohawk's Soft Spring Carpet has been cited as a winner in the floor-covering category of Home Depot's 2013 Innovation Awards.

The carpet also received first runner-up honors in the overall Innovation Awards, finishing second to Cree's LED light bulb. Second runner-up honors went to Plantation Patterns Patio for its Create Your Own Collection line of customizable patio furniture.

According to a Home Depot statement, the annual awards recognize "the most revolutionary new products that provide true benefits to consumers, and the companies that exceeded expectations in sales, service and program execution." The Soft Spring Carpet was cited for creating twice the softness as a standard carpet, and for maintaining what Home Depot said is the best warranty in the industry with Lifetime Stain and 25-year wear warranties.
