OAK NOUVEAU BLACK

Sarah

The wood floor in this apartment looks absolutely beautiful matched with classic, elegant and muted interiors.

Kährs Oak Nouveau Black is a 1-strip floor that has been refined through brushing and black pigmenting, a matt lacquer finish and the creation of a distinctive bevel on all four edges. A floor that is as beautiful as it is easy to look after.

DOME

Sarah

Hello 2015! First blog post of the year, and we want to keep it fresh. For us, nothing conveys fresh more than some white wood flooring completed with classic/elegant interiors. And this apartment in Stockholm beautifully combines the two.

Kährs Oak Dome is a 1-strip stained oak floor in a warm white tone. The long length of the board enhances the depth of the floor, and the thin overall thickness (7 mm) combined with its impressive 12 year warranty, makes this floor ideal for renovation projects.

WALNUT MONTREAL

Sarah

You know by now that we love the combination of white walls, white doors and white skirting set against wood floor. And this renovated apartment in Gothenburg is a great example of how natural walnut flooring in particular conveys a true sense of luxury and cosiness in a home.

Kährs Walnut Montreal is a 3-strip walnut wood floor with a lot of character. The natural depth and variations in the wood grains, combined with a silky-smooth surface finish, creates a deeply layered effect that just keeps getting better over time.

Fun fact: did you know that in ancient times, people believed that back aches could be relieved by carrying a walnut in its shell in the pocket?

RELIABILITY IS KEY

Sarah

We’re always happy when we come across beautiful, simplistic homes that feature a classic 3-strip wood floor made from natural oak. And you must know by now that our favourite go-to wood floor is Kährs Oak Siena; a classic floor with strips selected to provide a calm appearance but still with certain degree of variation in the grain.

What makes this wood floor special is that it sets a perfect base for any kind of interior- from the most rustic to the most contemporary and everything in between. Though not a floor that perhaps makes an extremely bold statement, it is rather one that subtly affects the room’s atmosphere and general feel.

As for the maintenance? This floor is extremely easy to maintain. We like to say a little vacuuming goes a long way- and we mean it. With its factory-finished silk matt lacquer finish, this floor has a natural subtle lustre that will last for generations. Our silk matt lacquer complements the wood’s character by accentuating its natural structure. It also makes the floor more hardwearing and easier to clean. Despite its strength, Kährs’ lacquer coating is exceptionally thin and, unlike many other lacquers, does not conceal the structure of the wood. In addition, with Kährs silk matt lacquer there’s no artificial shine. Combined with the unique engineered structure of each plank and joints, Kährs Oak Siena is quite simply the most reliable natural wood floor you can get!

So the weekend is upon us and we feel it’s high time for some eye candy! This duplex apartment in Stockholm, currently being represented by estate agents Wrede, is pure perfection in our eyes. We are in love with the understated grandeur of this beautiful space. The tones are muted, ceiling 5.5 m high and the windows are large, allowing plenty of natural light in. This whole space exudes freshness, industrial modernity and pure elegance.

HATTAN ❤ KÄHRS

Sarah

Emaar’s Hattan villas are an elegant collection of luxury villas, integrating the best in Arabian architecture with modern luxuries. Found in Arabian Ranches, The Lakes and The Meadows, we’ve seen a steady increase in wood flooring demands for these beautiful villas. Besides installing Kährs wood flooring, Hattan owners have been undertaking full renovation projects to customise their villas.

Gardens are being fully feng shui’d with beautiful seating and water features; bi-foldable doors or large windows are installed to create a smooth transition between the out/indoors; walls are knocked down to open up spaces and create an airier feel, and painted in light tones for a calm, harmonious ambiance. Light, natural toned wood flooring adds a strong coziness factor underfoot as well as an overall brightness to the home. Below are two beautiful examples of Hattan villas where Kährs wood flooring has been installed.

LAND DOWN UNDER

Sarah

While the current trend leaning towards lighter, or more natural earthy tones in wood flooring, it was really refreshing to come across this property with a classic, red-toned wood floor with an exotic feel.

Kährs Jarrah Sydney is a beautiful, sustainably-sourced, 3-strip wood floor with a dramatic colour. Jarrah (Australian Eucalyptus) is a dark and very durable wood species, harder than Oak. It has a smooth surface and straight grain and the heartwood is reddish in colour.

Because of its rather dramatic exotic hue – and because it becomes darker and richer over the years – this floor is best combined with light interiors that will in turn establish a balance between toning the dark, exotic-looking floor down while also creating a striking contrast over time. A classic, timeless combination.

NEW YORK STATE OF MIND

Sarah

This spectacular penthouse located in the popular area of ​​Greenwich Village in Manhattan (New York City) offers a spectacular 550 sqm living area. The dark wood floor creates a beautiful contrast to the brightness of the large spaces, generating that beautiful elegance that only a dark wood floor can.

We are big lovers of Kährs new floor Oak Nouveau Tara classic 1-strip/plank floor where the natural wood characteristics has been enhanced with microbevelled edges and brushing topped with a dark brown stain. Combined with white walls and skirting/mouldings, you will immediately create an elegant space that is timeless, certain to last for generations.
