Trend Alert! Graphic Flooring

Swedish sisters, Marie and Annica Eklund are the owners of the highly successful company Boland who produce these stunning carpet tiles.  They have designed these new concept tiles in various shapes and sizes that allows you as much creative freedom as you can muster up!  The new ‘wing’ tiles come in a choice of 62 colourways and in the shapes seen below:

As if that wasn’t clever enough, Boland was awarded the Australian Green Tag Level A Certification from an initiative to use renewable plasticiser and are working on using as much recycled materials in their products as possible.  But they don’t compromise on quality; their products are infamous for their high wear rating and extended life.

Graphic flooring is the next big thing.  This look would be stunning as a full floor covering creating floor art or if you’re not that brave, subtly bring it in with a border strip around the perimeter of a room or simply place a strip down a corridor.  What do you think, love or hate?!
