When it comes Surfaces 2014 (the flooring industry’s largest annual showcase of new product), we know this–what recently happened in Vegas has absolutely no chance of staying just in Vegas. The buzz is too big about the new products we unveiled, all distinguished by their innovative design and styling, durability and performance, and quality manufacturing.
During last month’s three-day gathering of tens of thousands of flooring professionals from around the world, record crowds pressed their way to our award-winning booth to see what will arrive at Mannington dealers this Spring.
Now, here’s a sneak peek for you, too.
The call for hardwood flooring has never been higher as more consumers are drawn to its beauty, upscale look and ability to increase their home value and resale (over 80 percent of real estate agents say that homes with hardwood floors sell faster and for more money, according to a survey by the National Wood Flooring Association). The new additions to our acclaimed wood flooring line-up offer looks that range from mysterious and exotic to comfortable and hand crafted.
With its refined yet elegant design point-of-view, Georgetown Walnut blends perfectly in any home. This 5” wide plank has natural color variations and subtle shadowed edges; and will be available in four colors (Olde Town shown here).
Like all of our engineered hardwood flooring, Georgetown Walnut is eco-friendly. Engineered hardwoods use half as many trees as solid wood floors and employ faster-growing, renewable wood for inner piles. Our factories are FSC® Chain of Custody certified and mill waste is reused for energy. Most of our hardwood products are FloorScore® certified and all meet-or exceed-the formaldehyde levels set forth in CARB phase I and II (the most stringent emissions laws in the world); plus, only no VOC water-based finishes are used.
Nothing brings the essence of the great outdoors to interiors like stone, slate and wood. And no one delivers that look and feel in porcelain tile like we do. Our new tile patterns are stylish head-turners distinguished by ultra-realistic pattern, color, texture and quality.
•With its realistic color, texture and 6” x 24” plank size, Wilderness combines the natural beauty of a classic American hardwood with the exceptional durability of porcelain. It comes in three colors (Dry Kindle shown here).
Mannington porcelain tile is also environmentally responsible. It’s made of all-natural products, is ultra-low VOC, will not emit contaminants due to inert product construction and meets strict indoor air quality standards. Nor do it support mold, fungus or bacteria growth; and the tiles can be cleaned with water alone—no harsh chemicals required.
Certified 100% porcelain tile, our porcelain tile is fired at higher temperatures than regular ceramic tile which makes it both more dense and less porous, stain resistant and 30% stronger than granite.
•Adura Luxury Vinyl Tile & Planks
In response to continued consumer demand for high style floors that are also versatile and easy to care for, we’re expanding our award-winning Adura® line (already the most complete luxury vinyl collection in the industry). Adura® lets you channel your inner designer and create the floors of your dreams because you can choose from an impressive range of styles, designs and sizes in both tiles and planks, with options for grouting and LockSolid™ installation. Look for five new patterns that deliver design’s hottest looks (stone, wood and concrete).
Corinthia rocks the scene with its depiction of multiple-size stones in both warm and cool hues. This sophisticated—yet livable–marble/stone aggregate is available in a 16” square tile format and two colors (Topaz shown here).
All Adura® ® flooring is designed to look—and feel—like the real thing, created with our proprietary NatureForm™, Nature Form Optix™ or V2™ technologies. Adura® is easy to maintain and is FloorScore® certified, complying to strict indoor air-quality standards. It won’t trap dust, pet dander or other allergens and most spills clean up with gentle soap and water.
As the manufacturer of the best-selling premium laminate line in the industry, we’re spotlighting the hottest trend in wood—wider planks—with much anticipated additions to our acclaimed Restoration Collection. Each plank is 8” wide, and 12mm thick for a more realistic look and feel.
Utilizing our exclusive NatureForm™ Optix embossed in register technology to enhance and highlight its rich, natural texture, French Oak laminate is an outstanding weathered oak look. This 8” wide plank comes in three colors (Caraway shown here).
Made with over 70 percent recycled content, our laminate is the only floor of its kind that’s FloorScore® certified, complying to strict indoor air quality standards. It’s manufactured with water-based low-VOC ink systems, adhesives and finishes; plus a formaldehyde-free adhesive system that complies with CARB. Incredibly scratch and stain resistant, our laminate is also dirt and dust resistant; and easy to maintain with simple vacuuming or dry mopping.
•Luxury Vinyl Sheet
We saved the best for last–a sneak peek of our much anticipated new luxury vinyl sheet program featuring the ColorSelect™ System. This innovative program is the first of its kind and is destined to revolutionize the hard surface shopping experience.
All performance levels in Mannington Luxury Vinyl Sheet (LVS) feature a fiberglass sheet construction and our exclusive NatureForm® 4G technology, the next evolution in realism. NatureForm® 4G delivers richer color and stunning visuals with a 25% increased pixel count and enhanced ink dispersion for superior clarity and fidelity.

The popular look of stained concrete is recreated in Relic, a 12” staggered tile visual that blends refined texture with fossil-like impressions. It comes in four colors (Fossil shown here).
Our Luxury Vinyl Sheet flooring won’t trap dust, pet dander or other allergens; and most spills clean up with gentle soap and water. It’s Made in The USA using ultra low VOC water-based inksm is FloorScore® certified and comes with Guardian™ Protection and a Never Yellow™ warranty.
