Rib Weave by Chilewich
“This new chunky, textural material weave of flat, dry colors has a very natural look to it. It’s a mat that comes self-bound and can be used in a variety of applications,” says Turpin-Vickroy.
Shibori by Amtico
“Amtico has many resilient products, but this is the one I like because it looks like real wood. We’ve considered using this in a lot of restaurant projects where we need to meet a tight budget and schedule and have to deal with floor-height transitions from one material to another,” says Turpin-Vickroy.

Otta by Apavisa
“We used this porcelain floor tile in Antracita color laid in running bond pattern for a high-traffic area that needed good slip resistance. Otta met that need and has a handsome, tailored look,” Willis says.
Marmoleum MCT by Forbo
“What’s old is new again! The colors available expand and support the natural and recycled material market. MCT Quiets footfall noise and its fiberglass backing makes it tougher than comparable sheet goods,” says Willis.

Venice by Concrete Collaborative
“I love their polished and honed concrete tiles. The large and custom sizing is crucial because it allows for that high-end look, and they also remind me of the polished bricks of the Forbidden City,” Richards says.
Nocchio by Ann Sacks Tile
“The collection has a beautiful palette of colors that bring the gray/black tones of antiqued and burnt woods to porcelain tile. This solution has the warmth of wood in a very durable product,” says Richards.
