LAND DOWN UNDER
August 31, 2014
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.
