Residential Vinyl Sheet with Diamond 10 Technology. Armstrong Flooring has reinvented Vinyl Sheet flooring—with incredible realism, authentic textures, vivid color and now, the infusion of its patent pending Diamond10 technology which offers superior scratch and stain performance so floors look newer, longer.
Alterna Engineered Stone. Alterna Reserve is reimagined with two new design collections: Grain Directions, reminiscent of a luxurious mountain retreat, its dynamic color palate elegantly blends with warm rustic sensibilities to express bold, impactful style. Historic District features the vintage feel of weathered wood, infused with captivating texture. All wood designs work together so they can be mixed and matched. Each design is available in multiple sizes so unique patterns can be created to personalize a space.
Natural Creations with Diamond 10 Technology. The collection is available in an array of modular shapes, sizes and patterns to reflect the natural look that is increasingly popular in today’s designs. Organized into three beautiful collections, ArborArt EarthCuts and Mystix are inspired by the natural beauty of wood, the colors and organic variations of stone and the distinctive woven-like appearance of textiles.
Artisan Collective. In this Gold Award-winning hardwood collection, Maple and Walnut come alive with style and beauty. White washed stains reveal natural or gray undertones for a minimalist, muted statement. Black washed natural and brown tones enliven Walnut’s distinctive grain with abundant color variation.
