Karndean Designflooring ‘inspires creative design with contemporary oak herringbone designs’

KARNDEAN Designflooring, which describes itself as the UK market leader in luxury vinyl flooring, is expanding its collection of contemporary herringbone designs, saying it’s offering ‘even more versatility to create intriguing interiors that ooze understated sophistication’.

From January 2024, six oak designs from its Van Gogh range will be available in an additional herringbone format. The new 18in x 4.5in plank size reportedly expands design possibilities when used alongside matching full-size planks or in bespoke colour combinations.

Fleur Carson, managing director at Karndean Designflooring, said: ‘With design creativity high on the agenda, we are responding to the wellbeing trend for quiet luxury, soothing warm neutrals and nature inspired interiors with authentic oak designs in new styling options.

‘Our designers have selected six beautiful designs from our Van Gogh range, all currently offered in a full-size plank, and expanded their design potential with a herringbone format.

‘The smaller plank accentuates the realistic grain features and organic colours of these timeless designs. Curated to complement each other in any colour combination, this new collection brings outstanding potential for bespoke interiors that invoke the healing power of biophilic design.’

Whether used in isolation in a traditional herringbone pattern or in conjunction with the matching full-size plank for an ‘elegant continuous flow, for example highlighting activity zones or creating directional wayfinding, Karndean’s new designs are guaranteed to introduce effortless elegance to any interior, from residential and hospitality to retail and workplaces’.

Says the company: ‘Alternatively, the new herringbones offer a contemporary twist on classic style with eight different laying pattern variations to explore, from a double herringbone in a single colourway to a two-tone double herringbone and diagonal double herringbone in three contrasting colours with a coordinating border.

‘The new herringbone collection includes four highly desirable designs from Karndean’s Highland Oak collection; Croftmore Oak, Glenmore Oak, Hayfield Oak and Aviemore Oak. Inspired by samples of reclaimed timber found at an old railway station tucked away in the Highlands of Scotland, these designs feature well-balanced grain markings, characterful signs of wear and a registered emboss for a highly authentic effect and subtle maturity that will bring any interior to life.’

The company continues: ‘Two further existing designs extend the colour range and options for interesting combinations. Canadian Nude Oak, with its neutral blond tones and gentle straight grain patterning, and the authentically replicated historic markings and tarnishing of Antique French Oak enhance the collection’s natural warmth and versatility to create a bespoke look.

‘Designed for reliable performance in high traffic environments, Karndean’s extensive Van Gogh collection offers specifiers unsurpassed versatility with a total of 70 wood and stone designs in a convenient choice of sizes and formats.’

The Van Gogh range features a 0.55mm wearlayer and 3.0mm thickness and comes with ‘the practical benefits of Karndean flooring, an environmental product declaration and the reassurance of a 15-year guarantee for commercial settings and a lifetime guarantee in residential settings’.

With a commitment to developing a greener built environment, Karndean says it recognises the need for urgent action and is taking bold steps and a pioneering spirit to create a better tomorrow. ‘This includes a commitment to set short and long-term company-wide emission reductions in line with science-based net-zero through the science-based targets initiative (SBTi).’
