Ok, we admit it. As soon as we enter June, the daydreaming about summer holidays begins. Ah, just imagine spending your days out by the water, just inhaling all that wonderful salty air. And having that sensation of slightly warmer-than-usual sunkissed skin at the end of the day while you’re having dinner under a romantic sunset. Sharing lots of laughter and love with friends and family. Spending your days surrounded by nature’s own colours and textures, overlooking the sun’s rays glittering on the water surface daily. That soothing sound of the waves hitting shore.
The seas and oceans of the world are as intimidating as they are fascinating. So vast, pure, beautiful and powerful. And the colours are especially inspirational. So it is no surprise that we often see a tanned tone of wood flooring (we suggest the appropriately named Kährs Oak Tan wood floor) combined with shades of white and nautical blues in the many images of coastal homes. The combination of colours creates that perfect sense of harmony in interiors.
We’re lucky we live in a coastal city like Dubai where the nautical style will always be in vogue. It may be a very specific style, but it’s one that will guaranteed leave your space feeling calm and relaxed, day after day. Wouldn’t you want to live like that?
Don’t forget to check out the latest issue of InsideOut magazine, with a special feature on wallcoverings. The wood flooring used for the styling of the room settings is none other than Kährs Oak Trollaborg. Looks really dramatic and cool in the diverse settings, doesn’t it? Just goes to show how the floor works well with every style.

In the latest issue of InsideOut magazine, we have two of our residential projects featured in the UAE home section!
The first one, titled “New and Improved” is the home of Debbie Cope (founder of House Hunters Real Estate) which features the beautiful Oak Oyster wood floor by Kährs Artisan Collection. Debbie selected the beautiful floor to complete her Hamptons-inspired home, and what a beautiful match it is! The floor looks absolutely amazing in combination with the relaxed, easy-breezy furniture and silver decorative details.
“Through the Looking Glass” is the second home – a breathtaking penthouse in Dubai Marina that was designed by “starchitect” Victor Udzenija (founder of Viktor Udzenija Architecture + Design). The glamorous home features Oak Nouveau Bronze by Kährs Classic Nouveau Collection. The warm honey-toned floor creates a luxurious and cozy base for all the designer furniture and complements each piece beautifully.
What a difference some wood flooring can do to a home, regardless of style! And with a repertoire of over 160 floors, we can guarantee a floor to suit yours.
InsideOut magazine is now available in stores, as well as for free download as an app for Apple and Android tablets.

In the latest issue of InsideOut magazine, you will find a feature on one of our clients’ apartments in Dubai Marina. Mr Wilfred, who lives in the apartment with his two adorable dogs Pierre and Chu Chu, selected the beautiful Ash Gotland wood floor from Kährs Nordic Naturals Collection. Ash Gotland is a light, exclusive 1-strip floor with nature’s own design showing through its dramatic knots and a lively structure. A characteristic is its bi-colour pattern. The darker core in Ash creates fantastic patterns and makes this a very special floor.
Here is a sneak peak from InsideOut magazine’s app version for tablets. Don’t forget that you can download the app for free today to read the full interview with Mr Wilfred to find out about his story and thinking behind his eccentric home.
We are extremely excited about the September/October issue of InsideOut magazine, not only because we love the magazine itself, but because of their app, where you can browse through a digital, interactive version of the magazine. Available for free download on the iPad (App Store) and Android (Google Play).
This is our first digital advertisement on the app and can only conclude that we absolutely love it! Instead of doing the usual one-page advertisement that – quite frankly, feels like any other advertisement – we decided to insert a gallery of our latest collection, Kährs Founders Collection, which we will exclusively launch at the Index show next week. The Founders Collection is based on traditional Swedish real wood floors, where each of the floors is named after Kährs six founding fathers since its establishment in 1857.
The latest InsideOut issue is up for grabs today, and this is one of our most anticipated ones of the year. The special flooring issue covers all types of flooring, and inspires with various colour palettes, diverse interior design schemes, price ranges and invites you to discover the interiors of four beautiful showrooms/spaces in Dubai.
One of the locations used was our very own showroom, where not only a variety of our Kährs wood flooring and other beautiful flooring materials were featured, but also our Mr Perswall wallpaper (by Kollektion & Co), iconic Egg Chair (by Fritz Hansen) and IKEA Stockholm coffee table that gracefully added to the nature feel.
