Modern Flooring Idea?

Modern Flooring Idea?

Q: After 10 years, we're finally redoing our kitchen/dining room. Right now we've taken down cabinets on the East (right) wall and used them for a temporary island so we can get a feel for size (that East wall will be all windows when we're done). The pantry and fridge have been temporarily located on the left but will be placed on the wall behind the pantry (sink will move to the island). All appliances will be stainless. The space directly at the front of this photo will be our dining area where we'll do banquet seating on the left wall.

We've picked out our cabines (Akurum series in Black/Brown from IKEA) and our countertops (bamboo on the island & concrete on the wall cabinets) but we can't start anything until we select flooring. We know we don't want ceramic/time, wood, or carpet (sounds crazy but that's what was there before). I think that leaves sheet goods like Marmoleum, but was curious what other ideas others might have. We've painted the floor (sub-floor actually) for the past 6 years (notice the fridge footprint just past our dog) and I love the current curvy design so we're thinking about trying something that would allow us to incorporate a design as well. I'd love any links/ideas anyone else can give me because I'm holding up the entire project!
