When our client bought her new apartment 5 years ago, carpet was installed on all areas apart from kitchen. After few years, carpet usually wears and can look really aged. She wanted to replace it in main living area with a timber floor that would match the existing interior design.
First choice was to go for Chevron or Herringbone. When we visited her unit we thought those patterns wouldn’t fit the space. We recommended to opt for a strip flooring pattern with random lengths and widths. Really popular in New-York’s penthouses and much more modern than classic French ones.
The colour was our second concern, as the owner wanted to match her main artwork, wall painting and skirting. Over the last year we discovered a really modern colour, that shows different shades of grey and brown. The tannin present in oak is naturally activated with the stain which accelerate the timber aging and modify the colour. This process is much more stable over time than a common stain.
Finally, the floor was finished with a natural hardwax oil from our supplier Ciranova. One coat was applied in our factory and two on site for a better result.
