Swedish company Bolon is known for its specific flooring made of woven acrylic thread. It is produced in rolls or tiles similar to linoleum and stuck to the floor, but has completely different vision and feeling.

Everyone happened to fall into the dilemma of choosing the color of the room, furniture, textiles for home styling. Even more difficult is when you need to combine several colors in the correct proportions to have a corresponding effect and do not irritate the eye. New technologies for the production of materials make the task virtually impossible for someone who hasn’t at least small experience in combining numerous patterns, colors, veneers, paints and coatings. Therefore, even designers nowadays tend to the use of applications that offer color combinations based on a set color and choice of one of the basic rules for combining colors:
