The Zhangjiajie National Forest Park is probably best recognized for being the inspiration for Avatar. It truly is a uniquely beautiful place to visit in China. In 1982, the park was recognized as the country’s first national forest park, with an area of 11.900 acres. Additionally, the park is part of a larger scenic area called Wulingyuan, which was inscribed as a UNESCO World Heritage Site in 1992. The Wulingyuan scenic area covers 397.5 square kilometers.
The Chinese Forest Park consists of dense forests, deep ravines, deep canyons, peaks, caves, and pillar-like rock formations. These unique formations are what the park is most well-known for. Additionally, these pillar formations are made of quartz-sandstone and formed by the erosion caused by the abundant rains in the region.
The unique view of the Zhangjiajie National Forest Park with its high mountains, dense forests, and clouds led us to create a green chevron carpet. We decided to recolor Sky Reflections by ege carpets, part of the graphic collection. This collection features bolder patterns, geometric shapes, and linear and even polka dot carpets.
With the green chevron carpet in mind, we created a material board inspired by the colors we saw at the Zhangjiajie National Forest Park. Therefore, we decided to include various tones of green in various patterns to add texture to the overall board. We included Serenissima Fossil by Conestoga Tile, Emerald Porcelain Tile by Porcelanosa, Water Lilies Marble Slab by Artistic Tile, and Olive Grove by Sherwin Williams. Additionally, we included OAK Molto Vulcano by Mafi America Inc to add a wooden touch. Lastly, lighter neutral tones reminiscent of the pillar formations, such as Silver Root Marble Slab by Artistic Tile and Flintstone by Dunn Edwards Paints.
