Pinnacle Interior Elements and Palo Duro Hardwoods have opened a new engineered wood flooring line in Colorado and the surrounding Rocky Mountain region. The line consists of 26 colors from four collections of textured, wide-plank flooring in hickory, white oak and walnut.
“Pinnacle offers a range of designs from classic and rustic to modern and on-trend,” says Tom Ruekert, Palo Duro Vice President. “These four collections fill an important niche in the market for our region. The quality, colors, textures, wide-plank widths, and price points are a great value for our customers. We’re glad to welcome Pinnacle as a partner in filling this need.”
The Grand Reserve Collection offers six white oak options in 7 ½”-wide. Colors include a classic range of medium to dark brown, plus contemporary tones of gray. Each is sculpted and wire-brushed, with pillowed edges and ends. Grand Reserve provides 9/16” thick flooring, with a four-millimeter sawn-face construction.
“Grand Reserve has a special vintage Euro look. The wire-brushed and hand-sculpted touch are highly relevant to today’s trends,” Ruekert says.
The Forest Knoll Collection offers eight colors of prefinished, 5”-wide flooring. These four white oak and four hickory products are 9/16” thick and have three-millimeter sawn face construction. Each is heavily hand-scraped, and has beveled edges and ends.
“We chose Forest Knoll for its rustic, hand-scraped texture and classic colors.”
The Traviata Collection offers five colors in wire-brushed, saw-cut, cross-grain planks with micro-beveled edges and ends. Traviata boards also are 9/16” thick and 7 ½”-wide. The collection is constructed with a two-millimeter sawn face.
“Traviata has what we call a Colorado-clean rustic finish,” Ruekert says. “It pushes the envelope with its faux-reclaimed texture combined with a fresh, modern style.”
The Plantation Collection also offers 7 ½”-wide oak and hickory planks. It’s “Tall Timbers” color stands out for its walnut character. Lightly wire-brushed and subtly hand-scraped textures are mixed throughout the collection of ½”-thick flooring.
“Plantation is a simply elegant collection,” Ruekert says. “It shows timeless beauty but has that trendy Euro fashion. The walnut was the lone item we chose that wasn’t oak or hickory, but for great reasons. It’s stunning.”
“We’re excited to bring these collections to the mountains,” says Brenda Cashion, who leads Pinnacle’s Hardwood Product Development & Market Strategy. “Their widths and textures meet the high demand of today’s consumers, and hit a special note for those who love the mountain lifestyle and want to bring a touch of that indoors with them.”
