A leading floor designer unveils new mixed material, oak and limestone-style designs and follows the latest flooring trends
At Karndean they see flooring differently. They travel the world in their quest to produce exceptional floors that inspire and delight. From the ancient forests of Europe, to the remote Australian outback and beyond, they seek out expressive and intriguing forms in the natural world to influence their unique floor designs. By combining these original features with cutting edge design, they create simply beautiful floors that you’ll love for a lifetime.
For 2018/19 they are expanding the stylish Opus collection with six new modern and contemporary hues including limed oak wood, shuttered concrete and limestone designs.
Designed for home decorators looking for a sophisticated floor in an extra large plank and tile design, Opus also welcomes two exclusive smaller ‘herringbone’ tile designs for the first time.
With the growing trend to match designs ‘room to room’ in separate rooms, open plan spaces and broken living areas, the new small tile design – available in Fumo and Argento – can be perfectly placed alongside the matching full stone tile and laid in a herringbone, block or brick laying pattern to bring an extra sense of style and interest to any room.
Combining the natural characteristics of European Oak with a unique shuttered concrete look, Fabrica is thought provoking with its classic knots and cross-sawn markings subtly displayed. The contemporary white tones can be ideal for creating a modern and clean décor.
Ideal for home decorators looking for a soft and sophisticated finish with distinctive grain details, Columba and Avena are designed to offer a neutral limed palette suitable for any room.
Joining already popular grey and poured concrete stone designs, Opus welcomes Fumo, Argento and Lutum as its new limestone offering. Interestingly, Karndean’s in-house design team sourced the original piece of limestone whilst trekking local quarries throughout England, and successfully created three individual designs.
