Following interior design trends, Karndean's twelve new Van Gogh wood look planks replicate the unique look that comes from the transformation of wood over time through burning, liming and smoking.
The collection includes four lightly lime-washed Oak looks, VGW91T Tawny Oak, VGW92T Burgundy Oak, VGW93T Hessian Oak and VGW94T Honey Oak. Reminiscent of salvaged antique flooring, the rich grain details and its large scaled planks (48" x 7") complement both traditional and contemporary architecture, and the larger size means reduced downtime and installation costs.
The collection also includes three unique designs inspired by American Redwood railway sleepers — VGW99T Reclaimed Redwood, VGW100T Aged Redwood and VGW101T Salvaged Redwood. Introducing wire brushing and etching techniques, Karndean gave the American Redwood designs the look of repurposed timber without the practical drawbacks of real wood such as splintering, cracking and warping.
Other designs include the VGW97T Burnished Beech and VGW98T Smoked Beech planks, the striking variation of VGW102T Charred Oak, and two of Karndean's most unique plank designs, VGW95T Lime-Washed Cypress and VGW96T Burnished Cypress. By combining liming and smoking techniques, the result is a more refined and sophisticated aesthetic that’s perfect for any commercial space in need of a highly realistic, rustic feel.
"Our new Van Gogh designs are our boldest to date. They are a welcome addition and reflect the trends we're seeing for authentic and textured interiors for commercial applications," commented Alex Stock, Head of Commercial Sales at Karndean Designflooring.
"The collection is not only design-led, but also retains all the durability, ease of maintenance and 100% stock availability our customers have come to rely on."
Available with a recently extended 15 year commercial warranty and R10 slip ratings, the complete Karndean Van Gogh collection will now feature a total of 32 wood designs.
