Has anyone used Armstrong's vinyl line Pryzm?

6 years ago

I am currently researching new floors for my entire house (~2200 sq feet) and have narrowed it down to vinyl planks. I was at first looking at engineered laminate, but have been impressed with the higher end vinyl products (waterproof!). I like the look of US floors Coretec HD and Karndean Art Select line, however after doing a lot of research about VOCs and phthalates I am leaning towards Armstrong. Armstrong (and Tarkett) have apparently committed to reducing the harmful chemicals in their vinyl products ( I want a well-made, beautiful product, but not one that could potentially have negative health effects down the line for kids and pets. Plus, vinyl is not environmentally friendly in the least.

So, with all that said, I have been leaning towards Armstrong. I requested a few samples and haven't found ones that I like yet. I just ordered samples of their designer line called Pryzm ( They don't have any at local retailers of this line so I haven't seen in person (I looked within 300 miles of my house!). Also, I haven't read too many reviews (positive or negative) about their vinyl planks in general, especially recently. And I have yet to find one single review of anyone that has used Pryzm.

Anyone used Pryzm before, or known someone that has? Any insight or pictures would be greatly appreciated. Or even advice on other flooring companies I should look into that are also health/environmentally conscious.

And I appreciate tile and hardwood floors, but that's not what I'm looking for right now.
