Unexpected Natureâ€™s luminescent hues and striking patterns reflect natureâ€™s brilliant shades of sea greens, stormy blues, volcanic coppers and mountain range ochres. Landscape inspirations for the collection include the Gunnison River in Coloradoâ€™s Black Canyon, and The Wave in Arizonaâ€™s North Coyote Buttes.
Fresh and uncompromising, Unexpected Nature features nine linear and nine marbled designs that push the boundaries of traditional linoleum aesthetics, creating a broad scope of imaginative installation. The linear patterns are about contrast, different ways of coloring, and tones within tones, while the marbled designs combine rich hues, fresh clean pastels, and evenly weighted warm and cool tones.
A truly sustainable flooring choice, Unexpected Nature is made from natural, renewable ingredients and contains 100% bio-based content. The collectionâ€™s Topshield finish provides occupancy-ready installation, reduced maintenance costs, and improved long-term aesthetics. Unexpected Nature is financially beneficial to LEED projects, and carries the most LCA based certifications of any resilient flooring product.
