Case Study: Karndean Designflooring Pittsburgh Showroom

Karndean Designflooring

Seeking an update to the showroom to coincide with the expansion of their USA headquarters facility, Karndean Designflooring used custom flooring designs and a refreshed interior space to create an impressive space for homeowners, retailers, and specifiers to visit and explore how Karndean Designflooring can meet their individual needs.

Demonstrating the versatility of designflooring, the display floors are defined by zonal layouts that guide visitors throughout the space to the featured sections of the showroom (pictured below): a reception area, design inspiration area, Karndean LooseLay stage, Commercial Library, and seating area.

Upon entering the building, guests are guided toward the reception area by a unique layout using VGW94T Honey Oak. Highlighted by a spectacular design featuring RP99 Limed CottonOak, the reception area floor exemplifies the possibilities of designflooring. The space is complemented by a custom-designed reception desk that is styled to fit the curvy flow of the space.

The Honey Oak design carries over into the showroom’s design table zone (shown below), which serves as the centerpiece of the space. Here, customers can build their floor using full size samples and design components. Supplementing the table are large scale design boards that display a wide range of Karndean’s design components.

Crossing to the other side, the showroom features the Karndean LooseLay stage, which incorporates stone and wood colors from this innovative collection. Placed over both wood underlayment and concrete subfloors, visitors have the opportunity to remove and replace individual pieces firsthand.

The final zone, the Commercial Library (pictured below), serves as a comfortable space in which specifiers can select the perfect floor for their project. Featuring a swatch wall containing 4”x4” product samples, specification literature and tools, a workspace, and a coffee station when a boost of inspiration is needed, the library has everything needed to finish any project with a flooring solution. To complete the space, the floor displays eye-catching Hexa designs from Karndean’s custom commercial collection, Kaleidoscope.

Tailored to help our network of local retailers and commercial specifiers, we welcome homeowners, retailers, architects, designers, and contractors, as well as their clients, to visit and browse the collection in a relaxed, pressure-free setting.
