BRING THE OUTSIDE IN…
With this introduction, Prism TFL is adding two new textures; Boreal, a deep, tactile, striated texture, and Velvet, a smooth, matte texture. Additionally, in 2019, two-sided Taction Oak Embossed in Register (EIR) panels will be offered!
The new collection is comprised of three new woodgrain series, an update to the existing Taction Oak, an exotic, leathery woodgrain and the inclusion of two new walnut décors. The update is rounded out with a textile-inspired design and a solid blue accent:
Nordica: In four different color tones. These bright, delicate wood looks bring the illusion of open space to urban living by working well with indoor green spaces like plants and windows to bring an understated elegance and minimalism to the indoor environment. Nordica is available in WF449 Sarek Ash, WF450 Bergen Ash, WF451 Narvik Ash, and WF452 Karuna Ash
Cascada: In two different color tones. This inviting and cordial laminate helps create a comfortable balance between natural elements and striking colors, metallic finishes, and stone finishes. Cascada is available in WF444 Tumalo Pine and WF445 Sahalie Pine
Fiero Oak: In three different color tones. Earthy and rustic, these authentic woodgrains speak for themselves with natural dark tones that resemble the sophisticated stylings of artful, handcrafted wood. Available in WF446 Charred Oak, WF447 Toasted Oak, and WF448 Seared Oak.
Taction Oak: Adding two color tones to our existing Taction oak collection. Inspired by the structure and color of its namesake, Taction Oak adds natural warm tones, modern bohemian sensibilities, and a cozy, inviting personality to interior surfaces. Taction Oak is available in WF440 Ginger and WF441 Burlap
The new collection includes two new walnut décors, WF442 Chique and WF443 Luxent; along with WF439 Outlandia, an exotic, leathery woodgrain look; and textile-inspired AF232 Natural Linen.
