Upcoming rigid core introductions showcase Karndean design legacy

Van Gogh multiformat:
Woods with enduring style and performance


A total of 20 colors from the pioneering Van Gogh glue-down range, some of which have been in the market since 2004 and are still popular today, will be available in an additional rigid core format this fall.

The latest additions including native Australasian designs that American homeowners are rarely exposed to in their natural format. Though not native to the United States, these species exhibit character with enduring American appeal.

Korlok Select & Korlok Reserve:
Woods with a soul and a story

One new visual in two colorways joins the award-winning Korlok Select rigid core range and was developed from oak floorboards of a railway station tucked away in the Scottish Highlands. Glenmore Oak and Braemar Oak each feature a new registered emboss that brings the design to life. Other additions include a new colorway of the range’s existing Baltic Oak design and adding two existing colorways in an additional 24 x 6 herringbone format.

To create the new American maple design for Korlok Reserve, designers fumed boards of the wood to enhance its underlying features—a departure from its typical straight grain. Other new visuals include a clean yet characterful elm design and a finely textured European sycamore.
