Quiet luxury

Karndean Designflooring has added contemporary herringbone oak designs.

Available from this month, six new herringbone floors in a range of classic oak designs will enable home decorators to embrace the sophistication of the quiet luxury trend and add value to their home. Expanding the styling opportunites of Karndean’s ever popular Van Gogh range, the new herringbone designs are guaranteed to inject an intimate elegance into any room.

From the neutral blond tones of Canadian Nude Oak, with its gentle straight-grain patterning, to the mix of distressed brown and grey tones of Hayfield Oak, inspired by timber reclaimed from an old railway station in the Scottish Highlands, and the authentically replicated historic markings and tarnishing of Antique French Oak, the new herringbone designs bring natural warmth, a modern finish and the versatility to create a bespoke look.

‘Our customers have always relied on us to provide beautiful floors that can stand up to the demands of modern life. Herringbone is a classic floor pattern that has seen a recent renaissance and its popularity continues to grow. To meet this market demand for product quality, style versatility and long-term appeal, our designers have selected six designs from our Van Gogh collection in a new, contemporary herringbone format,’ says Fleur Carson, Karndean Designflooring md.

‘Now more than ever, we are craving serenity and natural beauty in our homes. By introducing quietly luxurious materials, it becomes simple to curate a reassuringly calm space that is timeless and understated. Whether appealing to a preference for organic neutrals that bring a sense of peace or a kaleidoscope of bold colours and patterns, these new herringbone designs will both complement present tastes and offer the flexibility to evolve with future trends.

‘Available in a new 18in x 4.5in plank size in a glue-down format, the new herringbones are the ideal option to provide textural interest in an openplan home or introduce a sense of space in a smaller room. In addition, each design can be combined with its matching full-size plank for a cohesive room-to-room style.

‘This collection provides plenty of scope to get creative with the impact of a double herringbone. Customers can opt for statement style by combining two contrasting colourways for a stunning geometric effect before completing the floor with a border.’

The Van Gogh range offers a wide selection of wood and stone designs in a choice of glue-down and rigid core formats. The collection now includes 14 designs available in both herringbone and matching full-size options.

‘A preferred alternative to laminate and engineered wood, Karndean flooring has all the charm of real wood or stone without the downsides. Hard-wearing, comfortable underfoot and compatible with underfloor heating, as well as low in volatile organic compounds and phthalate free for a healthy home environment, Karndean flooring is perfectly suited to busy modern life and comes with the reassurance of a lifetime guarantee,’ says Carson.
