3 Karndean Collections Receive 2018 Good Design® Awards

Karndean is thrilled as three of their flooring collections have been awarded with a 2018 Good Design® Award and recognized by The Chicago Athenaeum: Museum of Architecture and Design. Those are – Knight Tile and Opus glue-downs and the Korlok Reserve rigid core. This annual awards program celebrates the most innovative, bold and cutting-edge products worldwide.

The Knight Tile Collection

It has new visuals within that are modern interpretations of traditional Australian and European woods and stones. The designs capture Scandinavian style flooring influence, also the clean linear grain pattern of the Australian Spotted Gum, combined with the honed and riven slates of hand-selected stone. The Knight Tile woods are available in 36” x 6” planks and the stones are sized 12” x 18”. Both come with a 12mil wear layer, a full-lifetime residential warranty, and 10-year commercial warranty.

The Opus Collection

The contemporary Opus glue-down collection features American black walnuts and unique “mixed materials”. The visuals offer all the characteristics of an authentic walnut in the shape of a durable luxury vinyl. The shades vary from the classic rich brown of Natural Walnut to the hybrid abstract visual Textum. The Opus planks are sized 36” x 6″ and the stone – 12” x 18”; both featuring a 20mil wear layer, a lifetime residential warranty and 15-year commercial warranty.

The Korlok Reserve

This is an addition to Karndean’s rigid core range, that was the recipient of a 2017 Good Design® Award. The Korlok Reserve is the most essential collection of rigid core flooring. It features a wide-ranging mix of designs, among which are classic and contemporary limed and oiled oaks, the traditional Oregon pine, and perfect walnut visuals in a diverse colour palette. The Korlok Reserve planks come in the size 48” x 7”, and are constructed with a 2G locking mechanism and a 20mil wear layer, featuring also a lifetime residential warranty and a 15-year commercial warranty.
