“In response to designers’ requests for more organic design elements, Panolam created the Pionite 2Be Collection to offer the ultimate in design flexibility from traditional, modern, and transitional palettes,” said Debbie Sulewski, Panolam’s senior director of design. “The 2Be Collection includes a blend of sophisticated woodgrains, classic yet dynamic abstracts, and vivid solids that use classic design elements to enhance the surroundings of any environment.”

The woodgrains in the 2Be Collection bring nature indoors with warm color tones, flowing striations, and authentic characteristics.

With four neutral and organic colorways, these timeless linen visuals are created to work with a plethora of designs and enhance a wide range of interior environments. The solids offer vibrant gender-neutral pops of color.
