After much anticipation and hard work, we are proud to introduce our Spring 2018 collection, made up of fresh, on-trend colors across our Knight Tile and Opus gluedown ranges and our new Korlok Reserve rigid core range. These new designs give you even more options in our high-quality, easily designable luxury vinyl floors!
New Gluedown Designs and Colors
With a palette ranging from light washed grays to smoky browns and indigo blacks, the newest Knight Tile and Opus gluedown designs feature original wood and stone visuals, including American black walnuts, European oaks and pines, Australian spotted gums, slates, limestone and a hybrid mixed material.
The American black walnut designs offer all the characteristics of authentic walnut in our durable luxury vinyl. While walnut is often used in furniture, this soft and expensive wood is not always a viable flooring option. You could lay these planks straight for a classic look, lay it on an angle with a full plank border, in a herringbone to give your space added visual interest. Choose from four colorways, including classic, rich satin browns and soft, contemporary grays.
Our Grey Scandi Pine is a modern take on traditional Scandinavian-style floors, a growing design influence in the US, which are usually light neutral tones, created by applying a gray wash to the planks. Similar in style but with more tonal variation throughout the entire floor, Grey Limed Oak was created by applying a color wash to the planks. Both of these floors have a clean look overall, creating a light, simplistic style in a look that won't distress with age.
Our Australian spotted gum, a wood rarely seen in the US, is more commonly known as the Eucalyptus tree. These visuals are well-suited for contemporary styles, as we combined the wood’s naturally long, linear grain pattern and minimalist knots with cool gray tones. Any of these would set a beautiful backdrop to design the rest of your space around.
Our slate designs were inspired by pieces of hand-selected stone that our development team chose from quarries in England’s Lake District. Depending on the type of room you’re designing, you could use Grey Riven Slate without design strips for an authentic rustic look or combine them with our design strips to create a traditional grouted look, in a kitchen for example. Our Honed Oyster Slate has more of a refined, elegant style. Add history to your home without the upkeep with these beautiful, 300 million-year-old sourced stone designs.
Fumo, our limestone inspired design, has smoky browns and grays which work well in both traditional and contemporary spaces. We can easily picture this design in a bathroom, kitchen, hallway or living area. Use this stone with our design strips for a grouted look that doesn't require sealing.
What’s really cool about our hybrid mixed material design, Textum, is that it combines the look of poured concrete with the grain detailing of wood. If you’d like to recreate a grouted porcelain look, which you can do by bordering each plank with our design strips, this would be a great visual to do that with!
We'll continue to share more about our new products in our next blog post, where we'll dive into our new rigid core product range, Korlok Reserve!
