YO! Sushi looks to Karndean Designflooring to complete new Kensington High Street restaurant


The original conveyor belt sushi bar restaurant, YO! Sushi, has specified the UK’s market leader in luxury vinyl flooring Karndean Designflooring in place of real wood at various locations throughout the country including Manchester Arndale, South Bank Festival Hall and Cheltenham.

Its latest restaurant to open in London’s prestigious Kensington High Street is no exception to the theme, with the nationwide chain specifying Karndean’s Da Vinci Australian Walnut (RP41) in all walkways and individual restaurant booths. 

The deep chocolatey tones and ebony lowlights of Australian Walnut successfully create a rich backdrop in key areas.

“We have always been impressed with Karndean’s wide product portfolio of stone and wood designs,” commented Jon Parry, construction manager at YO! Sushi.

He said: “Our design brief is simple; no restaurant should look the same. This is why Karndean’s endless designs fit our specification perfectly.

“Not only is Karndean harder wearing than wood and doesn’t suffer from expansion and contraction, but it’s also easy to maintain and retains its appearance beautifully.”

Paul Barratt, managing director of Karndean Designflooring, said: “Our products are highly recognised for their realistic wood and stone designs, so it’s fantastic to see YO! Sushi opting for our Da Vinci in place of real wood.

“The deep hues and thin plank design certainly adds impact in this contemporary area where customers can relax and enjoy this space.”
