When the GH Commercial team were tasked with delivering a great looking, hard wearing and comfortable flooring solution for a busy retail complex, they knew exactly what to do!

Refurbishing A Local Favourite

Malvern Central is a popular shopping hub featuring multiple specialty retailers, informal eateries and a David Jones store. The village-style centre attracts a loyal inner Melbourne customer base who enjoy the high calibre shopping and welcoming atmosphere.

The brief for updated flooring centred equally around function and form. Fusion, a standout carpet plank from our stunning {Choreography Collection} was the perfect choice. Fusion’s textured design in Jive, a practical dark neutral with contrast lineations, features a combination of the Sequence and Motion ranges, incorporating both vertical and horizontal lines to heighten the sense of overall space.

Installed in a herringbone arrowhead pattern below an ornamental central ceiling panel of timber parquetry, the right-angled configuration echoes the geometric decor influence for an aesthetic of timeless luxury.

Fabulous Fusion

The benefits of choosing Fusion carpet planks in a retail setting extend way beyond the clear visual appeal. Simple to install, they provide low maintenance flooring with excellent noise insulating properties, ideal for buffering the inherent clamour of a busy shopping environment. The distinctive pattern and textured loop pile of Fusion also serve to disguise any odd soiled patches, while single planks are easily removed and replaced if necessary.

Fusion planks are incredibly resilient; awarded an ACCS Commercial Extra Heavy Duty & Stairs rating, they are able to combat the heaviest of pedestrian traffic. Certified Declare Red List Free, they are produced on our Enviro Bac® backing system and are PVC free, conforming to exacting sustainability and toxic free chemical standards.

Designer Jet® Capability

Part of the Choreography Collection, all Australian made Fusion is manufactured using our Designer Jet® technology. This precision engineering system facilitates the tailoring of specific projects, with clients free to customise Fusion’s highlight colours from the Spectrum colour palette for a genuinely bespoke result.

GH Commercial are committed to providing beautiful, practical and long-lasting flooring products for architects and interior designers to confidently use across the full spectrum of retail installations.
