As our Fashion Issue hits shelves this week, our team is on the lookout for interiors choices that ooze luxury but present the most on-trend, unique looks. Let us introduce you to the MONN Planc flooring range, carpeted luxury with a surprising twist.
In recent years, there has been a huge interiors trend towards wooden and laminated flooring systems – whether it’s luxuriously preserved Oregon pine or an inexpensive wood-effect tiling, the rustic charm of wood-look flooring hasn’t yet lost its widespread appeal.
As a company that’s always on the forefront of innovation, MONN has identified this as an opportunity to introduce a solution that will bridge the gap between traditional carpeting and contemporary hard wood flooring.
This way, commercial and residential users will enjoy all the functional benefits of a carpet, but with the endless design potential that the slender MONN Planc tile modules hold. When DECO took a look at the range in a variety of interiors – from studies and bedrooms to professional office environments – we were astonished at the final effect: how could luxury carpet look so much like wood?
Obviously, despite the heritage and raw appeal of a real wooden floor, there are many benefits to soft flooring. Firstly, it offers better sound insulation – and because carpets capture dust particles, it also ensures improved air quality. Carpets feel more comfortable to walk on and, in a family environment with small children running around, pose a lesser danger of slipping. This remarkable range offers the perfect compromise.
MONN Planc carpet tiles would be a worthwhile consideration for either residential or commercial use, and, because the unique tiling system is more flexible (so our flooring experts inform us), the sub-floor preparation is less critical than that required for vinyl or laminated flooring.
But these are more than ordinary carpets. With their linear timber-like features, the MONN Planc range creates a contemporary wood design in attractive new creative proportions and scales. The range is available in 8 colour-ways, and complemented by beautiful accent tiles.
By combining colours and using different laying options, the design possibilities are endless. What’s more, DECO learnt that a long-lasting in-built finish on the product – the use of Stain Proof Aquafil Nylon 6 – ensures that MONN Planc flooring will stay just as exquisite for many years to come, making it a sound investment in the future of your stylish home.
