Karndean Art Select Collection

With stylish new wood- and stone-inspired looks for its high-end Art Select collection, Karndean Designflooring is raising the bar for premium luxury vinyl flooring. The collection elevates LVT design to an artform, combining hands-on craftsmanship and cutting-edge technology to replicate hardwood and stone in exacting detail.

With the launch of the new designs, Art Select will feature more than 45 wood and stone looks in a broad spectrum of tones – all with a top-of-the-line 30 mil wear layer, and all available for the first time in both gluedown and rigid core. The addition of rigid core to the Art Select collection provides retailers with another important option in meeting their customers’ needs.

The woods and stones that inspire Karndean designs are hand-selected from around the world – forests and lumberyards to remote mountain quarries. In the skilled hands of the Karndean design team, the natural characteristics of the source materials are enhanced and replicated, capturing the distinctive grains, textures and markings of the original wood and stone.

Along with commercial-grade durability, the 30 mil wear layer allows for craftsmanship that elevates the sophistication of the Art Select product. Wood-inspired designs are enhanced with hand-sculpted embosses and deep rounded bevels. Stone-inspired designs feature an emboss with smooth matte finish that minimizes reflection, preventing the ultra-realistic visual print from being obscured. The emboss also mimics the smooth finish of luxurious source materials such as marble and onyx. Rounded bevels accentuate individual tiles to showcase the visual designs.

Art Select offers consumers “livable luxury,” allowing them to bring the opulent look of often prohibitively expensive materials into their home – including stones, such as the semi-precious gemstone onyx, that are unsuitable for flooring in their natural state. Beautifully replicated as premium luxury vinyl with a top-of-the-line 30 mil wear layer, consumers can achieve these aspirational looks in a waterproof, scratch-resistant, easy-to-clean flooring product that’s backed by a lifetime warranty, with every design available in gluedown (3 mm thick) and rigid core (7 mm thick) with a 5G locking mechanism.
