As you can see, they were especially popular in bright green, shades of blue, as well as warm earth tones — including the supremely ’70s harvest gold color.

Green vintage Congoleum vinyl flooring (1974)
Armstrong Solarian vintage flooring (1975)
Mannington Lustrecon vinyl linoleum flooring (1975)
Lustrecon by Mannington. The most stain-resistant no-wax flooring… and at a modest price.
New Lustrecon is not only beautiful to look at, but its exclusive JT88 wear layer protects against more stains than any other no-wax flooring. Stains like mustard, iodine, alcohol and shoe polish. And, buffing alone restores its original built-in gloss without redressings.
Lustrecon from Mannington. It’s the beautiful stain-resistant flooring at a beautiful no-strain price.

Vintage Gafstar Brite-Bond floor in Classic Manor pattern (1978)
“I’m Cindi Mufson, Interior Designer. And I love the way GAFSTAR Brite-Bond floor tile adds a warm, natural look to any room. That’s why I’ve used it in so many homes I’ve designed.”
What’s more, Brite-Bond floor tile is as durable as it is beautiful. And the high gloss finish never needs waxing. (If necessary, gloss can be restored in heavy traffic areas by application of GAF Brite-Bond floor finish.)
GAFSTAR Brite-Bond floor tile. A simple, yet beautiful way to make a room come alive.

Mannington Aristocon – vintage vinyl roll flooring for the home (1974)
Aristocon: The extraordinary new floor. Kick it. Spill things on it. Take your aggressions out on it.
Aristocon. The tough, durable, remarkable new floor that can take all the use and abuse an active family can dish out. Mustard. Shoe polish. Grease. Liquor. Almost nothing can dampen Aristocon’s spirits.
It’s protected by a special JT88 no-wax finish that makes it resistant to stains, scratches. Extra-wide rolls practically eliminate seams. Non-stop colors and patterns warm up any room. And a damp mop is all it takes to clean just about any concoction your family can dream up. Forget the expensive polishes, too. Aristocon. It’s the carefree, no-wax floor that goes one step beyond easy care.
Embassy Lane pattern Armstrong FFC Solarian vinyl floor
Armstrong designer Solarian no-wax floors (1978)
Armstrong Designer Solarian with the richness of Inlaid Color. As different from other no-wax floors as an oil painting is from a print
No matter how fine a print is, it’s still just a print — a reproduction of the original. An oil painting is built up layer on layer, shade on shade, creating depth and realism. Armstrong’s exclusive Inlaid-Color process gives Designer Solarian the same richness, depth of, color, and realism of design as a painting … that quality of “an original” that no print can hope to achieve.
And because of its Mirabond wear surface, Solarian keeps its sunny shine without waxing or buffing far longer than ordinary vinyl floors. The cleaner you keep it, the brighter it shines. Just sponge-mop with detergent, and rinse thoroughly. If heavy-traffic areas eventually show some reduction in gloss, your retailer can supply Armstrong Suncoat floor finish, which can be applied occasionally as needed to help maintain the shine.
