Trend #2 - Metallics: Glittery, shiny gold and silver provide that simple touch of glamour to the everyday.


FLOR takes this season's brilliant metallics and blends them with new contrasting stripes for summer. Platinum, gold, silver and bronze are paired with soft cream for a light, airy "day" look or black for an elegant, "evening" finish that provides a more formal flair.


Trend #3 - Animal Patterns: A new call of the wild.


FLOR's translation of this lasting trend comes to life through an assortment of unique and colorful animal patterns. Not only are they a more animal friendly alternative, they also cost a lot less than the real thing.


Dior | El Tigre

Trend #4 - Black & White: A timeless classic - reinterpreted.


FLOR has added its distinctive spin to an old favorite - black & white. Never dull or boring, FLOR's black & white styles are patterned with bold, beautiful designs that can transform any room into something elegant an edgy all at once.

Side by Side | Ripple | Channel Surfing | Skully

Trend #5 - Accessible Art: Making art accessible in new ways.


Using photographic imagery and graphic designs from people like iconic Herman Miller textile designer, Alexander Girard, FLOR lets you add an artistic accent to any room in a fresh, new way.

Trend #6 - Vintage: What's old is new again.


What's old becomes new again with these colorful remakes. FLOR reinterprets lasting crafts like quilt-making and needlepoint and even reinvents timeless denim to bring you a hint of vintage charm in a fresh new style.


William Rast | Favorite Jeans


Souk Chic | Stitch in Time

Trend #7 - Florals: Appropriate for any occasion.


Florals are a popular pattern - probably because they're sure to draw a smile. Our unique floral creations let you produce your own serene gardenscape or combine with other styles to add a petal here or there with other solids or textures.


Badley Mischka | Anna Sui | Nanette Lepore | Mums the Word

Trend #8 - A Return to Classic Style: Tailored to perfection.


The sophisticated look of menswear is now available for your floor. FLOR's Well Suited gives you a traditional herringbone pattern in not so traditional colors. The result is gorgeous texture in rich hues.

Trend #9 - Graphic / Op Art Lines: It's a matter of perspective.


FLOR uses different shades in varied-width lines to create an optical illusion effect. Pair with contrasting colors within the line or mix with complementing styles like Power Nap for a softer look.


Dries Van Noten | Toe the Line

Trend #10 - Expanding Our Living Spaces: It's not just for furniture any more.


Add the flexibility and practicality of FLOR to expand your living space - perfect for covered decks, patios, porches and sunrooms.
