Soy—based eco—flooring latest trend for today's healthy homes

(NC)—According to home decor experts, 2011 will mark the introduction of a new approach to interior design – the “Healthy Home”. Honest architecture and the mantra of Zen are already playing out in interior spaces that feature natural finishes and clean lines. Making homes a healthier environment to live in is also a prime concern with homeowners, as shown by the demand for low VOC paints, stains and materials, as well as natural wood cabinets, furniture and floorings.

Certain manufacturers are more than answering the call for healthier, eco–friendly home decor options by setting new trends in “green” product innovation.

Mercier Wood Flooring, one of North America's leading hardwood flooring manufacturers, is setting the tone in the home decor category with its latest eco–flooring innovation that is so healthy and eco–friendly that it actually was awarded the “Children and Schools certification” by world–renowned standards organization Greenguard

“At Mercier we have long recognized this trend and have made eco–friendliness a core value ever since our first day,” explained Michel Collin, Director of Marketing for Mercier Wood Flooring. “This is why we are so proud of our new Greenguard Generations 'Children and School' certified flooring, Mercier's next generation of flooring.”

Made using 100 per cent pure soybean oil, this revolutionary new factory–finished flooring boasts zero volatile organic compounds (VOC's) is hypoallergenic and offers a comprehensive 35–year warranty.

Available in all species, colors and finishes, Collin added that with this new product innovation you can create a natural wood floor that offers both a distinct character to your décor, as well as a healthy, eco–friendly choice for your entire family. “We feel our Generation Greenguard flooring answers the need parents have to create healthy living environments in their homes for their children.”

Ideal for kids' rooms, living rooms, daycares, schools and playrooms, this new generation of flooring is a key step in the process of creating the ideal healthy home. More information on the latest trends in wood flooring is available at
