Emily Morrow Home names 2019 convention introductions
Monday, December 17, 2018
A once-in-a lifetime journey across Africa inspired a collection of hardwoods that captures the incredible beauty, textures and colors of its scenic landscape. Included in the Safari Collection are four styles, crafted in the USA of White Oak and enhanced with a 2.5mm wear layer and aluminum oxide finish to protect against scratches. To minimize joints, Emily Morrow Home said it mills each plank with ultra-micro bevel edges, creating a smooth, clean look.
–Tusker Herringbone and Tusker Wide
Not only is Tusker the Emily Morrow Home Color of the Year for 2019, but it’s the featured product in her stunning array of new introductions. Patterned after the majesty of African elephants, the striking, sliced-face visual is colored in warm taupe with subtle striations of gray and ivory. Offered in sizes specifically cut for herringbone installations as well as 9” widths, these companion planks give customers the ability to vary the layout of this gorgeous look as they extend it throughout their home.
–Great Migration Herringbone and Great Migration Wide
One of Africa’s most spectacular events is the great migration of wildebeest, zebras, and gazelles across Northern Tanzania and Kenya. The vastness of the herds creates a magnificent movement of color that is reflected in Emily Morrow Home’s latest creation. The sliced-face texture of the Great Migration styles have a matte finish and come cut specifically for herringbone installations and in complementary 9” widths.
Named after the endless plains of the Serengeti, this new introduction has an innate beauty that’s easy to admire. The 7” wide planks boast a natural coloration that exudes warmth, creating a look that enhances any interior setting. Crafted of natural-grade, sawn-face White Oak, Serengeti Spirit has fewer knots and a smooth, lightly wire-brushed finish.
Luxurious hues ranging from tan to taupe flow across Moon River’s smooth, sawn-face surface. The effect gives each 7” plank incredible color movement, which works in harmony with its subtle graining. Light cerusing and a matte finish add even more visual appeal to this statement piece.
Emily Morrow Home’s Metropolitan Collection consists of three styles that bring a sense of city living to today’s homes. Crafted of White Oak in 7” widths, the planks have ultra-micro beveled edges and are enhanced with a 3.5 mm wear layer and aluminum oxide finish, for exceptionally durability and scratch resistant, the company said.
Influenced by one of nature’s most awe-inspiring sights, Total Eclipse has strikingly dark features. A hint of creaminess gives the style a subtle warmth that also works to elevate its light gray, cerused grain and lightly hand-brushed hand detailing.
Inspired by the paddocks of the Kentucky Derby, this exquisite beauty is colored in gray brown striations with light touches of creamy white cerusing. Its matte finish and wire-brushed hand detailing further accentuate its uptown style, making it a popular choice for todays’ interiors.
Santa Rosa began with a “Gesso moment,” which sparked a desire to create a hardwood with influences of plaster white effects. It took a lot of design magic to bring the vision to life, but the finished look successfully achieves the perfect wash of chalkiness. Its matte, muted aesthetic and soft, wire-brushed finish play off the clean elegance of “California cool” monochromatic interiors.
The Heritage Collection is defined by warm, traditional colors that are rich in tone and aesthetic. Each style is influenced by cherished experiences rooted in customs and places that are forever timeless, the company added. Wear and scratch-resistant, the 7” wide White Oak planks have ultra-beveled edges, which minimize joint grooves for a clean, smooth look.
The exquisite chestnut color of Justify, the Triple Crown winner, inspired the look of this beautiful hardwood. Enhanced graining and subtle wire-brushing accentuate the rich brown color and give it a warmth that makes any décor more welcoming.
–William & Mary
The dark, cultured color of William and Mary has an heirloom quality that imbues a home with European grace. Very matte and gently wire-brushed, this old-world style has an oiled-rubbed look that retains is resemblance without the maintenance.
–Lewis & Clark
Along the Lewis & Clark Trail in Montana, wheat fields blanket the landscape in every direction. The golden color of this grain is reflected in Emily Morrow Homes’ new introduction, which gives a welcome nod to the gradual entrance of a warming color palette. Earthy and casual, Lewis & Clark has an authentic quality that perfectly suits today’s relaxed lifestyle.
In addition to showcasing these new introductions at Surfaces 2019 (Booth 925), Finkell is joining the Floor Covering Industry Foundation and a group of industry leaders for a panel discussion on cause marketing, entitled “Finding The Pot of Gold: The Greater Good.” She will also be a featured panelist for Mark Woodman’s “See Me, Feel Me, Design with Me” discussion, which will explore the key components of the designed space and how they can come together.
The Emily Morrow Home brand will exhibit at Domotex USA (Booth 1421) as well and is partnering with Domotex to host a designer trend panel discussion and luncheon entitled, “Design is a Journey.” Emily Morrow Home can also be found at Booth 925 during TISE 2019 and CCA Booth 733.
