That Funky Monkey

We see Brass making a comeback! Expect to also see this color along with copper, bronze and black metal. These tones also work together in modern design and are effortlessly incorporated into contract spaces.

The Wider the Better

The uber-popular wide planks are still on the rise! 5" is the now the mainstream choice, and 7.5" - 9.5" are the new go-to along with random width floor designs in a mix of species and materials.

Patterned Flooring

Reminiscent of old wood parquet styles of arranged zig zag patterns of hardwood flooring that has been around for over a 100 years and today designers can create a new modern twist with the advances of technology to simulate this look in other materials. A classic way to achieve this trend is with a herringbone or chevron floors. This look can be accomplished with Hardwood, Porcelain, Natural Stone and LVT!
