Invision introduces Spirit, a bold and daring design that will awaken the senses. The ethereal pattern exhibits a multitude of personalities. The palette has 12 colorways ranging from subtle tones of beige, brown, and gray to exciting shades of orange, blue and green. Spirit's tonal colors allow it to work well in the upscale corporate environment, while some of the more vibrant and contrasting color combinations will work great in the retail and hospitality segments.
Constantine's LindstromTM is a bold and graphic approach to pattern, texture and color. Complexity in the range of luster, varying dye-abilities of the fiber, and unique fade and shadowline characteristics create a surprisingly dimensional surface. To make Lindstrom's graphic pattern widely usable, a balance was created of bold, brighter contrast and tonal, subtle neutrals. Lindstrom can be specified with 16 percent post-industrial recycled content and is CRI Green Label Plus approved.ABET LAMINATI introduces Commercial Laminate Flooring-a premium product ideal for retail, hospitality and corporate environments. The excellent durability of this laminate, coupled with the warm, subtle look of wood, creates one of the best choices in floor coverings today. But beauty is only one of its qualities. As a true, no maintenance commercial flooring product, it is resistant to intense impact, heat, bacteria and UV rays. Available in more than 50 colors of various wood species, ABET's Commercial Laminate Floor will keep its handsome appearance for many years to come.  
Combining subtlety with style, Amtico International introduces Amtico Linear. Linear features a contemporary abstract surface pattern that complements new trends in furniture design and adds depth and sophistication to a space. Up close, the subtle line pattern of Amtico Linear is visible, but from a distance the flooring takes on a more neutral appearance-challenging designer perceptions of traditional "resilient tile" aesthetics. Linear is available in six neutral shades, offering a Linear choice for nearly any color scheme. The collection can be ordered in tiles or planks that experiment with the grain-breaking up large spaces and adding interest to smaller applications.Building on its leadership in flooring design and selection, Armstrong Commercial Floors offers a newly enhanced portfolio of exotic and domestic wood species crafted to perform beautifully in commercial interiors. Made of 100 percent hardwood, Armstrong's engineered floors are high-performance products. They are made by bonding several wood layers together, with the feature species on the surface. Engineered wood flooring can be used virtually anywhere, even over concrete or below grade. From silky smooth to hand-scraped and distressed rustics, Armstrong offers a variety of surface textures that accent the floor with custom, hand-crafted looks. 
Roppe Corp. introduces Dimensions. What began as a concept to take familiar shapes and patterns provided by other popular flooring materials and make then in a resilient rubber tile, became the best innovation the rubber flooring industry has seen in decades. Dimensions offers three profiles: Random, a unique combination of rectangles that interact with each other in various profiles; Stripe, a twist on the original carpet tiles; and Crackle, a rendition of cracked ceramic tiles. All profiles are available in Roppe's complete tile color palette and at the company's Single Price Point. Breaking traditional boundaries, InterfaceFLOR takes modular flooring to the next level. Providing enhanced color and texture, the 1968TM Collection hits with hip designs of the swinging ‘60s; mini skirts, go-go boots, pop art, peace, love and the Fab Four. Inspired by designer David Oakey, the 1968 Collection is available in nine patterns and 12 colorways that showcase different arrangements of geometric shapes and lines. It's so FAR OUT, it's IN.
Patcraft, unveils its latest modular tile collection: Zoom. Inspired by The Modernist Design Movement of the late 1920s and early 1930s, the collection embraces a rational minimalist approach to design. The inspiration for Zoom came from Patcraft's designers after spending time in Berlin-the last home of the Bauhaus Design School in Europe. Zoom is a 100 percent Cradle-to-Cradle solution. At the end of its useful life, Patcraft will reclaim the used carpet and upcycle both the fiber and backing into new carpet again and again-effectively keeping it out of the landfills forever.
