Export, Pa.—Karndean Designflooring is introducing 12 new wood and 10 new stone designs as part of its Da Vinci range.
The company said the new Da Vinci collection is a fresh take on today’s trends of natural look colors and reclaimed designs. Taking inspiration from the narrow planks that were standard in early 20th Century homes, the wood looks enhance the collection with new, on-trend modern rustic designs. The 10 stone looks offer weathered industrial, textile, and natural visuals that represent the very essence of Karndean’s innovative ability to recreate products from the natural world in LVT.
The inspiration for the wood and stone designs can be characterized by natural, reclaimed and weathered, and fabric looks.
The three classic oak designs, Natural Oak, Harvest Oak, and Blended Oak, provide a traditional and clean-lined style in shades ranging from light to mid-brown. The stones in this group were inspired by natural limestone. Ranging from the pale, sandy tones of dune to the darker, grainer sable and drift, these tiles incorporate subtle design and neutral complexions for an incredibly authentic look.
Reclaimed and weathered
The four stones in this group were inspired by weathered steel for a unique, industrial appearance. Molten represents the striking rust characteristics of the original oxidized product, while Iron Ore and Eisen feature this effect with muted tones. Carbon is the most subtle of the four and the dark color accentuates the original weathering.
Inspired by natural fibers and textiles, the soft muted tones of the four Limed Oak designs, Limed Silk, Limed Jute, Limed Linen, and Limed Cotton, are enhanced with a lime-washed finish, accentuating the unique grain details of each plank.
Serving as a distinct change of pace from the collection’s traditional stone designs, Burnet, Cambric, and Sindon take their inspiration from natural woven fabric and lightly brushed concrete.
