Perfectly capturing the beauty of the natural world, Allura Flex 0.55, the new loose lay Luxury Vinyl Tile (LVT) collection from Forbo Flooring Systems, takes the trend for nature-inspired interiors to a new level.
Natural designs are increasing in popularity across all sectors, and reclaimed wood and exposed stone are in high demand. Allura Flex 0.55 is right on trend, featuring the grains, patterns and tones inherent within wood and stone, and offers authentic, realistic designs that will connect end users to the natural world. Aesthetics are not the only attraction: the loose lay format means that installation is quick, easy and cost effective.
In the Allura Flex 0.55 Wood range there are 30 stylish options, including vintage wood designs and traditional, classic wood looks with timeless appeal. The authentic, rustic tones of salvaged timber have been accurately represented, alongside refreshed colourful finishes that give the collection a modern edge.
Deemed a ‘luxury’ surfacing material, natural stone has been used in interior design and decor for centuries. Within Forbo’s Allura Flex 0.55 Stone range, designers will find the lavish styling of marble together with contemporary stone designs, enabling specifiers to recreate this ever-popular look, but without the high costs associated with using quarried stone.
Allura Flex 0.55 floor coverings are offered in a variety of formats to enhance their naturalistic designs. Stone designs are available in three square and rectangular ‘slab’ sizes whilst Wood designs are offered in a choice of three ‘plank’ formats to allow diverse and striking layouts to be created, including herringbone, chevron and wicker designs.
“This new loose lay LVT collection will have particular appeal in hospitality and leisure environments” says Julie Dempster, marketing manager at Forbo Flooring Systems. “Designers looking to optimise the use of the finite space available are increasingly using floor coverings of different textures, colours and characteristics to create different activity zones within open plan areas. Aesthetically pleasing modular floor coverings that are quick and easy to fit offer an ideal solution.
“Allura Flex 0.55 vinyl tiles can be installed alongside carpet tiles and contractors can even use the same tackifier, which results in less time, cost and mess during installation.”
