Karndean Designflooring introduces eight new color additions to its premium Art Select collection, including Reclaimed Hickories, American Chestnuts, and French Oaks.
Four new hickory designs were developed from reclaimed hickory recovered from a turn-of-the-century barn in the American Midwest. Each design reflects stunning color contrast between the heartwood and outer sapwood found in the source wood, suited for a modern look with casual appeal. The company’s new, exclusive cross sawn emboss is true to the traditional process of sawing the logs with mechanical rotary blades, further enhancing the natural appearance of the planks.
A commercially extinct wood, American Chestnut is now only available as a reclaimed material and is one of the rarest varieties of reclaimed hardwood. The character found in this wood, including cracks, worm holes and blemishes, live on in the two new Karndean Designflooring chestnut designs.
Recognizable for clean natural designs, French Oak has been a long-established flooring choice. Three new French Oak designs, available in an extra-long 56” x 9” plank, will add a sense of grandeur to any space. One of the new designs, Glacier Oak, is also available in an 18” x 3” parquet format, allowing homeowners to scale the format to different sized rooms.
Art Select wood planks feature a distinctive beveled edge, 30-mil wear layer and lifetime residential warranty.
