1. Geometric Patterns
Geometric patterns were everywhere at the flooring world trade shows this year. Parquet designs such as this Chevron pattern have been around for a few seasons and we don't think they will be going anywhere soon. These patterns are popular for flooring, feature walls, counter-fronts and more.

2. Timber Slats
Timber slats are a HUGE trend in interiors at the moment and give a modern contemporary feel to a space. They can be used on walls and ceilings to provide visual interest, texture and warmth or can be used in place of screens to divide up an area.

4. Extreme Wide Planks
The trend for wide planks seems to get more and more extreme each year! Wide planks are fantastic for large open areas as they minimize the visual disturbance caused by joints in the floor, helping to create a luxurious and seamless-looking interior.

5. Warm Caramel Tones
Caramel has risen as result of the trend for natural and neutral interiors, as it works well with raw materials such as concrete, plywood, stone etc and adds the perfect amount of warmth to otherwise monochrome interiors.
