Company adds five colors to Elegant Collection as demand surges for wider planks of specialty cuts
STODDARD, N.H., Dec. 8, 2022 /PRNewswire/ -- Carlisle Wide Plank Floors, the leader in artisan-crafted wide plank hardwood flooring for residential and commercial spaces, has seen increasing demand for the unique features of Rift and Quartersawn White Oak, particularly in the company's hard-to-find wider width planks. Long prized for high-end flooring, the specialty cuts result in very strong, stable planks with interesting visual patterns created by a tree's growth rings. Rift-sawn planks offer straight, clean grains while quartersawn captures beautiful ray patterns known as flecking.

In response to the surging interest, Carlisle has added five new colors to its Elegant Collection, a luxury line featuring Rift and Quartersawn planks. "Our top design customers wanted more color options readily available to show their customers. We studied the trends in our custom colors that clients were requesting and selected tones that tapped into today's preferences," explains Chris Sy, company President. With names such as Alabaster, Sandy Point, Valley Fog, Champagne Toast and Chocolate Truffle, the new hues round out a palette that ranges from lighter whitewashes to subtle taupes, to traditional medium to darker tones.
Product Development Manager Mike Hebert says that creamy washes and lighter tones have been particularly popular but are starting to veer toward taupe tones that shift between brown and gray. "The taupe colors are dynamic – they really change depending on the light and the time of day," he explains.
The Elegant Collection uses American-sourced Rift & Quartersawn White Oak. The heirloom-grade solid or engineered planks in the collection are offered in two- to twelve-foot lengths. Each plank is eight inches wide with a smooth texture and on-trend super matte sheen.
The collection can be ordered through Carlisle showrooms or by contacting Carlisle directly.
