Novelty designs like this can be great for an office, playroom, mudroom or laundry room — in particular, when you can span the room in one piece — this product comes in 12′ widths. This New York City streetscape design is part of Tarkett’s FiberFloor Ambiente line — introduced in 2011 — which has some other designs that reflect current trends, as well. Like:
And more trees… Can you believe I’m showing you all this greige? I see the influence of “Twilight” in all these low-chroma “I live in Seattle where it’s dark outside all the time and need a super latte stat!”
And even this super trendy mish mash of faded and distressed wood. On many of the trendy design blogs, you see them putting distressed wood (the real deal) directly onto walls. It’s a *thing* now, I think.
Tarkett’s Residential FiberFloor® isn’t just sheet vinyl, I think. It seems to be made from a special five-layer system, and it has a lifetime warranty. From a news release about a 2010 award:
Easy Living™ Collection has earned a prestigious Best Buy rating from Consumers Digest magazine in its recent „Best Buys in Flooring? issue. The publication reports that on average the Consumers Digest Best Buy rating is awarded to less than three percent of the competing models in any given product category. In earning its designation in the Best Buy – Economy flooring selection, the editors noted that “You would have to pay more than double the price to get as many color choices as Tarkett?s Easy Living line offers. The line?s three collections – Classic, Fun and Fashion – have the most varied selection of vinyl designs that we?ve seen.” They also highlighted the collection?s durability; “It?s also built using the company?s FiberFloor five-layer system, which includes a combination of resilient layers, woven fiberglass (to keep the floor from expanding and contracting) and foam (for added comfort).
Nicely done, Tarkett. See their complete lineup of FiberFloor designs here.
