Quick-Step LogoDallas, TX – Quick-Step, the style and technology leader in modern flooring, is introducing two new product collections at Surfaces 2009 – the high-gloss exotics Allustra collection and the Sculptique collection of softly hand-scraped, rustic decors.  These two new collections provide the consumer extraordinary style at an affordable price.  The company is also expanding its Quadra stone and tile-look collection to include a new modern cement look.

“Even though they fall on widely varying points within the design spectrum, our Allustra and Sculptique collections, as well as our Quadra additions, all hit on today’s most sought-after design looks,” said Roger Farabee, senior vice president of marketing, Quick-Step.  “Allustra highlights some of the world’s most exotic woods with a glossy finish to achieve a lustrous elegance that delivers sophistication and high-style, making an exquisite statement down to the finest detail.  Sculptique’s hand-scraped, time-worn looks add the traditional warmth that many homeowners are seeking.  Quadra’s new stained cements offer consumers a sleek, modern design element.”

Each of these collections features Quick-Step’s patented Uniclic easy-installation locking system and is backed by the brand’s limited lifetime warranty.

These new products will be featured prominently during Surfaces 2009 in booth 3419.  Quick-Step representatives will be on-hand to provide visitors with more information about the company’s new product additions, as well as many of its other popular products.

New Product Introductions:

Allustra – High-Gloss Exotics

When high-style is what consumers desire, Allustra delivers the sophistication they are looking for.  This collection is the definition of lustrous elegance, achieved by highlighting exotic wood looks with a smooth, glossy surface.  Also, with Allustra, consumers are able bring the beautiful, rich designs of exotic woods into their homes, without cutting down one endangered tree.  The collection’s 6 1/8″ wide single-planks feature a fine micro-beveled v-groove on all four sides and are available in six different species looks (Zebrano, Afrormosia, Port Wine Rosewood, Scarlet Mahogany, Chocolate Cafe Rosewood and Midnight Mahogany).  All Allustra designs feature Quick-Step’s patented Uniclic easy-installation locking system.

Sculptique – Lightly Hand-Scraped Rustics

The charm of Quick-Step’s Sculptique collection can be found in the warm look of lightly hand-scraped surfaces that lend a beautifully time-worn appearance.  The collection’s 6 1/8″ wide planks are available in varying species represented in the five decors (Amber Cherry, Earthen Maple, Black Cherry, Chocolate Cafe Rosewood and Russet Hickory) and feature scalloped edges on all four sides as well as Quick-Step’s patented Uniclic easy-installation locking system.

Quadra – Stained Cements & Soft Slates (Line Extension)
The unique Quadra collection, which accurately replicates natural slate and ceramic tile, has been expanded to now include both the stained cement look which is currently very popular in the marketplace and a separate soft slate visual.  Five-color printing captures the nuances of these materials’ inherent design details and provides the warm undertones found in the four new decors:  Painted Desert, Barista Brown, Desert Natural and Vanilla Bean.  The four new designs are available in 15 9/16″ squares with micro-beveled foil edges on all four sides and feature Quick-Step’s patented Uniclic easy-installation locking system.
