Karndean Designflooring expands Opus collection


Manufacturer adds mixed-material, oak and limestone designs to range

Karndean Designflooring is expanding its Opus collection with six new modern and contemporary designs including three woods, three stones, and two exclusive smaller ‘herringbone’ tile designs.

Designed with a wide variety of commercial specifications in mind, Opus is most recognised for its stylish selection of grey tones and extra-large plank (48” x 9”) and tile (18” x 24”) designs with a preferred 2.5mm thickness, 0.55mm wear layer, and enhanced R10 and R11 slip resistance ratings.

As well as expanding its limed wood-effect designs, Opus now presents mixed material and limestone designs for the first time.

Combining the natural characteristics of European Oak with a unique shuttered concrete effect, Fabrica is thought provoking with its classic knots and cross-sawn markings subtly displayed for added definition.

Ideal for specifiers looking for a clean and sophisticated finish with distinctive grain details, Columba and Avena are designed to offer a neutral limed palette for commercial environments.

Joining already-popular grey and poured concrete stone designs, Opus welcomes – Fumo, Argento and Lutum – as its new limestone offering. Interestingly, Karndean’s in-house design team sourced the original piece of limestone whilst trekking local quarries throughout England, and successfully created three individual designs.

With the growing trend to match designs ‘room to room’ or create divides in open plan spaces, Opus introduces Fumo and Argento in a new 18” x 3” small tile design. The new tile size can be perfectly placed alongside the matching 18” x 24” full stone tile and laid in a herringbone, brick or block design to create a sense of direction or zone out individual areas.

“Our Opus range is one of our leading commercial collections for architects, interior designers and contractors looking for a high-specification luxury vinyl tile (LVT) wood or stone design,” explains Paul Barratt, managing director of Karndean Designflooring.

He added: “Being able to add a new dimension of intriguing designs to our Opus collection will allow us to expand our offering to specifiers, giving extra flexibility at the point of specification. The wide variation of wood and stone designs and tones available mean there are options for all commercial spaces.

“Having the opportunity to introduce our first smaller tile design in herringbone, brick or block laying pattern against our matching full length plank adds a new visual element to consider.”
