Product Declaration: Da Vinci from Karndean Designflooring
Karndean’s 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 the early 20th Century, the wood looks enhance the collection with new, on-trend ‘modern rustic’ designs. The stone looks offer weathered industrial, textile, and natural visuals that represent the very essence of our 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 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 to darker, grainer looks, these tiles incorporate subtle design and neutral complexions for an incredibly authentic look.
Reclaimed and weathered
With an alluring color variation from plank to plank, our two new Acacia designs and Scorched Oak have been designed to replicate the look of burnt timbers. The two driftwood designs mimic the sea salt worn features of reclaimed driftwood. The four stones in this group were inspired by weathered steel for a unique, industrial appearance.
Inspired by natural fibers and textiles, the soft muted tones of the four limed oak designs are enhanced with an eye-catching limewashed finish, accentuating the unique grain details of each plank. The stone looks are a distinct change of pace from the collection’s traditional designs, taking their inspiration from natural woven fabric and lightly brushed concrete.
Backed by a 20 year commercial warranty and featuring a heavy duty 30 mil wear layer, the collection is perfect for high-traffic commercial spaces. In addition to tremendous durability, Da Vinci woods are popular in commercial environments for their slender planks with beveled edges and a smooth finish, while the stone designs are renowned for their incredibly realistic textures and visuals. Da Vinci woods are available in 36”x3” planks, while the collection’s stone designs come in large 12”x18” and 16”x16” tiles.
