Export, Pa.—Karndean Designflooring invites the interior design community to “see flooring differently” from June 11-13 at NeoCon, booth #7-8116, held at Chicago’s Merchandise Mart. From original visuals to designability and ordering, Karndean Designflooring’s unique approach to luxury vinyl will change the way you see, design and specify flooring.
Spring 2018 collection
The Karndean Designflooring product development team seeks out expressive and intriguing forms in nature to develop its unique visuals and combines these features with cutting-edge design. Among the 24 new Spring 2018 visuals is Grey Riven Slate, which appears on the booth floor directly below a 300-pound piece of slate that inspired the design. Other new designs include American black walnut, shuttered concrete, European oak and pine and Australian spotted gum.
An extension of the award-winning Korlok Select range, Korlok Reserve is the newest rigid core collection from Karndean Designflooring. From the classic, yet rustic design of Vintage Oregon Oak sourced from the Pacific Northwest, to the sleek, matte grays of Tavern Oiled Oak, this collection of woods is an eclectic mix of rustic, limed and oiled visuals. Korlok Reserve is available in 48” x 7” planks with a 2G locking mechanism and 20mil wear layer.
Commercial flooring solutions
Each of the company’s three award-winning, waterproof formats (gluedown, loose lay and rigid core) allows designers to “design flooring differently,” without the limitations common to hardwood, tile and other hard surface flooring. See the impact of Designflooring throughout the booth, including grouted wood designs, intricate blends and design trend drivers ranging from art deco to color pop.
Karndean LooseLay’s multi-directional designs can be installed quickly and easily in any space with minimal adhesive and minimal disruption to employees and patrons. Karndean LooseLay allows for an easy transition to carpet tile, its planks and tiles may be individually replaced, and it reduces noise transfer by 13dB.
The Korlok Select and new Korlok Reserve rigid core collections continue a tradition of excellence in design and performance. The Karndean Designflooring waterproof K-Core is 100% PVC, ensuring a stronger, more stable core for installation over most existing hard floors without exposing subfloor imperfections; while its pre-attached acoustic foam backing reduces sound transfer by 22dB. Only Korlok Select features the HoldFast 5G locking mechanism, guaranteed to keep planks together at the end seams by its 15-year HoldFast Commercial Warranty.
Both Korlok and LooseLay Longboard received a 2017 Good Design award by The Chicago Athenaeum: Museum of Architecture and Design.
