The VISION House® in INNOVENTIONS at Epcot® presented by Green Builder® Media (GBM) in collaboration with Walt Disney Imagineering is designed to provide real solutions for contemporary green living. Since living green begins at home and a "green" kitchen is becoming a priority for many homeowners, it's one of the focal points of the exhibit which incorporates flooring and cabinet products by Armstrong World Industries.

Kids Learn Earth-Friendly Tips

The exhibit represents a modern 21st century home, designed with sustainable products and intelligent systems. Throughout the exhibit, children and adults are encouraged to consider how they can reduce their personal impact on the planet.  The experiential exhibit highlights the very best in green residential design, including high-efficiency heating and cooling systems, whole-home automation systems, and products like hardwood floors and wood cabinets.  

The hardwood floors are not just beautiful; they're also durable and long lasting. "This type of flooring from Armstrong allows people to enjoy wood's natural beauty, while knowing it was derived from a carefully managed renewable resource," said Mara Villanueva-Heras, vice president, Marketing, Armstrong Residential Flooring.

150 Years of Innovation and Sustainability

In its 150 years of doing business, Armstrong® has a history of innovation and wise use of resources.  Its interior products business began by recycling cork waste to make linoleum flooring for homes and commercial buildings. One hundred years later, the company is still making linoleum with  natural ingredients, and now markets the most extensive portfolio of residential floor products available – genuine hardwood, laminate, linoleum, vinyl sheet and tile – as well as cabinets and ceiling products.
