Flooring Trends in 2019

Flooring Trends for 2019 can be summed up in two fabulously appealing words:

FAMILY-FRIENDLY!

Covering all the latest innovations in carpeting, vinyl plank, hardwood and tile, our own Michael Fletcher delivered the happenings of THE INTERNATIONAL SURFACES EVENT with his opening in our latest sales meeting: “I’m so excited with this year’s new introductions in flooring that I wish I had more time at Surfaces in Las Vegas!”

What Happens In Vegas, Won’t Stay In Vegas

It’s Coming To Our Showroom!

Flooring Trend 2019: Patterns, Patterns, Patterns!

Mannington’s AduraMax APEX increases their vinyl plank line with the Loft and Tracery series. High-style that’s beautifully worry-free, the Loft collection is arranged in a classic Parquet pattern which is offered in three colorways. The Tracery collection is inspired by ornamental stone openwork in architecture creating unique designs in interlacing tiles.

And, then, there’s Bog Wood!

It happens once in a great while where the new products that are being introduced totally take the sales meeting to another level with a quietness, a questioning look as Michael Fletcher leads our team through the discovery of Bog Wood. If you’re from the Mid-West, or parts thereabout, you’ve probably heard of Bog Wood, but for the rest of us here’s a quick introduction: It’s oak that has been buried in a peat bog for hundreds of years. The staining of the wood occurs naturally through organic matter of iron, salts & minerals which react to the tannins in the wood. What does this have to do with our new flooring introductions?

Introducing Hallmark Hardwoods True Collection

Hallmark Hardwoods True collection is unlike other engineered hardwood floors as the color goes throughout the surface layer without using stains or dyes. The process of creating these floors is ground-breaking in its technology where heat, pressure, salt and minerals replicate the natural occurring processes of Bog Wood. The variation in tones is outstanding. Coming soon!
