Stylish stone effects for University reception

Stylish stone effect luxury vinyl tiles from the Polyflor Expona art & design collection, incorporating both inset signage and geometric designs, have been used to dramatic effect in the refurbishment of the reception area of the modern humanities building at De Montfort University, Leicester.

Complementary egg shell terrazzo and silver slate colourways were used for the main floor areas by local flooring contractors Excelsior Flooring who also employed the water jet cutting techniques of the Polyflor Expressions Design service to create the contrasting insets.

Combining stunning designs with quality materials and proven functionality, the Expona art & design collection has been specially developed to widen the horizons of creative interior design, offering a balanced choice of 30 timber and 30 stone/design effects.

These include rustic/distressed styles and realistic fruit tree effect - ranging from Wild Cherry and Walnut to French Nut Tree and Appletree - and up-to-the-minute stone/design effects including subtle shades of Sandstone, Limestone and Wet Concrete plus dramatically authentic Rusted Metal and Treadplate.

Creative freedom is at the heart of Expona art & design, emphasised by the availability of innovative border design options, including a “multi-border system” which provides the facility to create unique floor designs for every installation.

Suitable for very heavy commercial use and ideal for leisure, hotel and retail installations, Expona features a polyurethane surface treatment, aiding maintenance and removing traditional restrictions on freedom of design choice.
