With its delicate colors balanced by the bold striation of its grain, vintage wood offers a classic and timeless look for floors and walls alike. Walker Zanger, amid its 60th year of reinventing styles and surfaces, is introducing Nature, a new plank-style porcelain tile collection that looks and feels like grain-sawn wood, yet wears and endures like porcelain.
Nature looks, quite simply, like wood. It boasts all the organic nuance, color, and patina of antique wood floors found in cottages and country estates, with a vintage, weathered look. Yet, Nature is deceptively high-tech, employing the latest advances in digital glazing to mimic the look and feel of wood, allowing it to be used in places where wood has always been employed-and in many places where it hasn't ventured.
"With the advent of Nature, the look of rich antique wood can be brought to areas where water is present, such as kitchens and baths, as well as high-traffic areas like retail, hospitality and commercial office lofts," notes Walker Zanger Vice President of Design and Marketing Jared Becker. "Its ability to beautifully weather the elements and wear-and-tear make it an exciting new choice for indoor and outdoor installation."
Just like real wood, Nature is available in bold planks of 6- and 8-inch widths, each nearly four feet long. Nature is featured in colors that include: White, Honey, Grey, and Brown. The Nature Collection is available nationwide, immediately.
