Sheehan said Lousiville Hickory, first introduced at Surfaces 2006 “continues to top the charts.” One of the first beveled-edge planks in the industry, the product also takes Mannington's Louisville Hickoryadvantage of Mannington’s exclusive NatureForm Optix Technology “for exceptional real- ism through color and texture.”
