Daltonian announced the introduction of 3 new colorations to the budget priced woven pattern, "Royalty". The new colors #10 Maroon, #90 Ebony, and #45 Moss Green will be available beginning August 1. The 2 original Royalty colors, Red/Navy and African Sunset, will continue as is. Royalty, with its busy overall pattern and soil hiding ability, has been a commercial favorite for many years.
In early December we added 8 new colors to our highly durable slip resistant line of needlepunch carpets, Duronop and Lombok. Later that month, one of our competitors, Van Dijk, closed their doors and went out of business. Many of our new colors were very similar to the former Van Dijk colors. They are available for your review on the Daltonian web site. Now we have just added our 14th color (5 originals + 8 in December + 1 in May) Riviera Blue. This is a very attractive blue/gray color available in Duronop broadloom and Duro Tile.
Biggest news this Spring is the constant number of cost increases all flooring manufacturers (including Daltonian) have been receiving. Fibers, latex, backing, transportation, etc. have all risen in cost and forced us to revise our selling prices. We don't like it, but we have had to pass along these increases.
Advice- If you are presently considering purchasing some floor or wall covering - don't delay. Buy now before prices rise again.
