Wood-Look Color Styles
The Armstrong Luxe Rigid Core vinyl collection is available in a wide range of realistic-looking wooden and stone finishes, including beautiful colors such as Armstrong Countryside Oak Gunstock, which offers a traditional look with gorgeous appeal familiar to its namesake species. Empire Walnut Flint Gray is an ideal choice for creating a vintage appearance in any room. We recommend this style to anyone who embraces rustic, shabby-chic design. Farmhouse Plank Rugged Brown also pays tribute to rustic timeworn hardwoods, with high color variation, distressed visuals, accurate representation of grain patterns and knotholes, and a dusty earthen shade reminiscent of cabins secluded deep in the woods, untouched by modern civilization. For a more exotic look, consider the deep reddish browns of Armstrong Tioga Timber Java.
Natural Stone Replications
The stone-look luxury vinyl tiles found in Armstrong Luxe Rigid Core are equally as stunning as its hardwood counterparts. Armstrong Lexington Slate Sahara Beige, as well as Lexington Slate Sand and Sky, blend natural slate aesthetics with intricate marbling for a durable, resilient floor unaffected by drops, spills, chips, or scratches. These stone replications are excellent choices for kitchens and bathrooms where natural stone tile floors might be costly or impractical. In addition to slate, Luxe Rigid Core offers a travertine option along with a gray color that blends natural stone and wood looks together. Concrete Structure Soho Gray works well in modern lofts, projecting an intertwined amalgamation of traditional oak streaking patterns and the tattered gray hues found in newly-poured polished concrete, with alternating patches of different shade variations. Piazza Travertine Dovetail accurately depicts the natural beauty of vein-cut travertine stone with a sharp gray overtone, perfectly fitting in both modern and traditional interior motifs. Concrete Structure Gotham City is very much in a category of its own; this color presents itself as if natural quartz was melded with reclaimed hardwood, creating a striking charcoal gray look ideal for spaces such as home offices, dens, and bedrooms that require a slight dampening effect on natural light.
