Flooring for a 1970s kitchen or living area: Moroccan-style Filigree luxury vinyl flooring from Mannington

Nosing around flooring websites for what’s new, I spotted this new Moroccan-style “Filigree” luxury vinyl flooring just out from Mannington — note, it’s sheet flooring incorporating a 6″ tile design. This tile reminds me of sheet flooring from the 1970s — hurray for pattern finally coming back to vinyl floor tile!

Moroccan- and Cuban-style tiles are a very popular contemporary look today. But — designs fairly similar to this were also all the rage in the 1970s, albeit there were real color-colors then. If you have a 1970s house, I think this tile would work given its faded look. (The full-strength colors in another Mannington line, Deco, make that tile too contemporary for a 70s restoration look, in my opinion.)

Filigree comes in four washed out colors. The other two:

    Sigh. Of course the beige (Brass, they called it) is discontinued. I’m having a heck of a time finding something for my bronzy/brown/gold tiled bathroom! Even the salesperson I spoke with at a big flooring showroom laughed…yep, everything is gray, gray, gray right now.

    Info for 50s flooring 6 inch square vinyl squares. Greenish color. On old doctors and elementary school flooring. Where to purchase replace tiles. Still good on some areas of the building

      Hi Freda, See this story, Armstrong or Mannington VCT might be your best bet, but you’ll have to cut the tiles down.
