At Surfaces/StonExpo 2012, more than 25 companies submitted their products in the New Product Marketplace area on the floor, all vying for the chance to win the Best New Product of 2012. Beaulieu of America was the standout this year as they were awarded the top prize with Bliss EverClean “Created,” a solution-dyed, ulta-soft polyester carpet with Magic Fresh odor reducer and Lifetime Stain Warranty. The selection was made by a panel of judges comprised of some of the industry’s top editors and installation experts.

“’Created’ is a great example of our new EverClean collection,” observed Ralph Boe, president and ceo of Beaulieu. “Because it’s made with our own solution-dyed polyester fiber, you can even remove really stubborn stains with a 50/50 solution of bleach and water without harming the color. Plus, it still provides our Magic Fresh odor reducing properties to keep your home smelling fresh. We thank the judges for this recognition. We are very proud.”

National Floor Trends, Floor Covering InstallerandTILE Magazinesponsored the New Product Marketplace, and columnists and editors from these magazines judged the Best New Product Award.
