Bold Browns

5 Jan 2022

A new year brings a fresh take on the classic dark brown wood flooring. From a color spectrum of deep earthy browns to warmer caramel tones, our Auburn, Brunette, and Cocoa flooring colors offer a range of patterns and shades of the "neutral" browns, that are anything but boring.

The color brown has remained as the top color choice in people's palettes. The warmth and earthy tones evokes comfort in any space, coupled with the inherent moodiness that darker shades naturally bring to a room. 

Laurie Pressman, Vice President of the Pantone Color Institute also confirms “Browns are important across the gamut and are inspired by dried seaweed and driftwood."

The surge of chocolate neutrals has found expression in various elements of home decor, including painted trims, ceilings, rugs, and flooring, weaving a seamless aesthetic throughout living spaces. WGSN, a premier trend forecaster, also predicted the comeback of brown in the luxury hospitality sector and fashion.
