Forbo has refreshed its popular Luxury Vinyl Tile (LVT) collection, Allura, in response to the growing trend for combining shapes, sizes and colours to create contemporary floor spaces. By playing with scale, direction and combinations across the range, the manufacturer has introduced new shapes and sizes, alongside innovative digital print options, that are ideal for use across the hotel and hospitality market.
The Allura collection now includes new large-scale 180 x 32cm giant oak planks and 1m x 1m tiles, as well as small 50 x 15cm planks. The new XXL plank sizes have been designed to help achieve the allusion of larger and lighter areas in buildings where space is limited, and can be used to create more spacious and social interiors whilst emulating the Scandinavian design trend for a neutral feel and finish.
The smaller planks can be used creatively in smaller areas or within the body of more traditional floor designs. A new Hungarian Point plank, cut on a 45° angle allows realistic herringbone and chevron designs to be created with ease.
Part of Forbo’s largest ‘wood’ offer to date, there are also new contemporary solids and more planks than ever before, with in-register embossing to bring designs to life. For a fresh approach to stone, the new marble options bring a soft, natural angular flow to a timeless floor design.
“Allura is 100% phthalate-free, REACH-compliant and produced in Europe with low emission levels,” says Julie Dempster, marketing manager at Forbo. “The excellent dimensional stability ensures safe and hygienic floors and the superior embossed lacquering system guarantees long-lasting appearance retention and improves the resistance to stains and scratches. Our customers will also find natural stress-reducing designs and high LRVs in the collection.”
