Karndean LooseLay Wood-Inspired LVT Designs

Platinum Award

Our LooseLay designs are inspired by wood from around the world, expertly crafted to capture the distinctive colors, tones, textures and grain details that make them unique – with all of the benefits of luxury vinyl for installation, maintenance and performance. 

The Design Process

Designs were developed in-house by our global product team and are exclusive to Karndean Designflooring. Every one is an original.

European Oak: Regarded for centuries as a luxurious flooring choice, these designs celebrate the classic colors, grains and textures of European oak. Inspired by oaks from England, Italy and France, they provide a robust palette for commercial designers. 

White Oak: Building on the continued popularity of limed oaks, we selected a batch of fine-grade wood as inspiration for these designs. Adding a limed finish accentuates the open grain of the original oak, creating a contemporary look with gentle color variation from plank to plank, while a select number of darker planks create contrast. 

Danish Oak: In the 1800s, vast oak forests were planted across Europe to provide building material for ships. Today, Danish oak is regarded as a high-quality timber for furniture and flooring. Our luxury vinyl designs have a consistent color tone across planks and the appearance of burnished black knots. 

American Wood: Our American Wood designs offer oak-inspired looks in neutral colors, all replicating traditional oak grain and knot detail. Other designs were inspired by heart pine, for which a light brush and light satin oils bring the blended tones to life. 

Australian Wood: Our Australian Wood designs were inspired by ash from Swan Bay, distinguished by unique markings from the flames of bush fires, and spotted gum from the eastern seaboard, with smooth bark that sheds in patches to create the spotted appearance.
