We LOVE this apartment’s masculine interpretation of 1950/60’s “Retro-Modern” style. A very hipster, yet glam feel, highly reminiscent of what is seen in the hit TV series Mad Men (yes, we are currently imagining Mr. Draper deep in though, sitting in one of those armchairs).
As you might know by now, our favourite combination is black + white + wood, so this apartment definitely scores high in our books. By keeping the palette basic, and focusing on creating depth and interest with diverse textures/textiles and decorative objects, this home has an beautiful and timeless elegance to it.
To achieve this look, opt for Kährs Oak Nouveau Charcoal, a 2-strip wood floor with a brushed, black pigmented, matt lacquer finish. Bevelled 4-sided to create the effect of a beautiful 1-strip plank.
Old meets new and modern in this charming loft apartment. The already extremely bright space gets further enhanced with the white wood floor, clean lines, sheer curtains and minimal, monochrome furniture.
Kährs Oak Nouveau Snow wood floor has a distinct white hue on a naturally colour varying oak, with defining white bevels and occasional white and darker knots. The surface is brushed and matt lacquered to enhance the natural wood feeling. A classic and hardwearing wood floor that will last for generations.
Walnut: a dark, medium hard wood species. The wood is straight grained and patchy. The heartwood is pale brown to dark chocolate in colour. Unlike most wood species, walnut turns lighter over the years and becomes golden brown.
Seen in this simple yet cozy apartment that nods to a modern take on suave retro design (perhaps even slightly reminiscent of a Mad Men-esque era). We love the combination of monochromatic and wood furniture, gold/silver details and a rich walnut wood floor, such as Kährs 3-strip Walnut Hartford – a dark brown floor with natural variations in colour and structure resulting in beautiful depth.
Yet another stunning home by the Swedish real estate agents Fantastic Frank. We are loving the elegant white wood floor, which serves as a perfect base for the home. Combining a white wood floor with white walls and fixtures makes the floor more subtle in its beauty, where it won’t overpower the remaining elements such as beautiful furniture pieces and artwork. Thereby, de-cluttering. It also brightens up the space, allowing for the natural light to reflect off it beautifully.
Oak Nouveau Snow by Kährs Classic Nouveau Collection has a distinct white hue on a naturally colour varying oak, with white bevels and occasional white and darker knots. The surface is brushed and matt lacquered. An elegant floor skilfully crafted by Kährs using sustainably sourced Swedish oak wood. A floor that is as beautiful as it is easy to look after – a floor that lasts for generations.
This stylish apartment in Stockholm is a well-preserved property built in 1898, as seen by all the original details throughout the home. But what makes this home interesting is that it makes you do a double-take. The focus here isn’t on designer furniture, but rather on the architecture and its history – from the floors, to the walls, doors and ceiling details. However, this homeowner has also added a unique and creative twist to the majestic space, creating a beautiful juxtaposition between the classic and the contemporary details and showing us that less really is more.
The natural oak floor is suitable for those looking for a classic wood flooring that differs from the classic strips design. Oak Palazzo Rovere from Kährs European Renaissance Collection is a floor with the strips laid in a Dutch pattern. With its timeless design, silk matt lacquer surface finish and 30 year warranty, this floor will be sure to last for generations.
