Armstrong Flooring proudly announces it has won four individual Dealers’ Choice Awards – the floor covering industry’s top awards – and is the only brand to have products recognized across the breadth of its product portfolio. The winning product lines are Artistic Timbers™ Hardwood - TimberBrushed™ and TimberCuts™ collections; Vivero™ luxury flooring; Architectural Remnants laminate; and Two-Step resilient sheet.
The annual Dealers’ Choice Awards are sponsored by one of the industry’s leading trade publications, Floor Covering Weekly. Voting took place during the Surfaces flooring industry trade show, where retailers from across the nation cast their ballots.
“Armstrong’s Dealers’ Choice win across four product categories – laminate, hardwood, LVT and resilient sheet – is one of only two times in the 20 year history of this contest that any one company has swept so many categories. With 1,445 retailers voting for best product at the show, it is an impressive win,” said Santiago Montero, Publisher & Editor in Chief, Floor Covering Weekly.
“These awards are significant to us because they were voted on by dealers. We work hard every day to be our customers’ preferred choice for hardsurface flooring, so taking home top honors in our product categories is a testament that our unwavering focus on design, quality and consumer-driven innovation is resonating with our customers,” said Joe Bondi, Senior Vice President-North America Residential.
Recognized in the Hardwood category, two new lines, TimberCuts™ solid and TimberBrushed™ engineered floors, reflect the beauty of hand-crafted artisanship with abundant rustic charm and distinctive character. Armstrong Flooring brings the premium wood trend into the mainstream in these two stunning, low maintenance collections.
Taking top honors in laminate, the popular Architectural Remnants collection pairs the exquisite look of high-end, reclaimed hardwoods with diverse species, colors and realistic rustic textures.
The new Two Step line, first-place winner for resilient sheet, offers new designs in both urethane and non-urethane collections, including lightweight and flexible Flexstep™ (fiberglass), durable StrataMax™ hi-performance vinyl (limestone) and Initiator™/Station Square™ (traditional felt). Two Step is manufactured in the United States at Armstrong Flooring facilities in Stillwater, OK and Lancaster, PA.
