Karndean’s Art Select Stones Collection LVT has been named as a finalist in the Tomorrow’s Flooring Awards.
Tomorrow’s Flooring is an online industry magazine, and for the fourth year running they have shortlisted 50 flooring products that have made a significant impact over the year. Sarah Robinson, the editor of Tomorrow’s Flooring, said that the Art Select Stones LVT was an obvious choice as a finalist.
Sarah Robinson was impressed by the unique and inspiring designs from the Art Select Stones collection. The range of the designs allows designers and homeowners to create a luxurious and highly realistic finish at a fraction of the cost. Also, luxury vinyl tile with a stone pattern keeps you from having to deal with the difficulties of real stone flooring such as cracking and chipping. The marble, limestone, travertine, and slate looks from around the globe also inspired her to pick this flooring as a finalist. Click here to see our collection of Art Select LVT from Karndean.
Many people love Christmas so much that they turn their house into their own little Christmas sanctuary. Some people put up multiple Christmas trees, some put as many Christmas area rugs or decor around the house, and some create one room in the house with a winter or Christmas theme.
Interior expert Laurence Llewelyn-Bowen created his own indulgent Christmas sanctuary in the ‘throne room.’ Laurence based his design in the bathroom because of the concept that the only true peace is found in the ‘throne room.’ Laurence used products from the Van Gogh and Michelangelo collections from Karndean. He used the soft white styling of Karndean’s White Washed Oak and the contrasting charcoal black tones of Karndean’s Umbrian Nero. These two floors combined create a striking backdrop to his unique space.
Besides the flooring, Laurence used some creative winter decor. He used two snowy white owls, tree branches, and a small mound of fake snow. He also placed a few leaves throughout the room to go along with the winter theme.
Karndean’s Art Select Island Limestone flooring has rich organic hues that can achieve both a calming and indulgent ambiance in any space in your home. The flooring itself was inspired by the coastlines of the Channel Islands.

All of the patterns are available in a traditional random panel design, which gives the flooring a beautifully realistic look. Images of the different styles are shown below.
