The shortlisted design features a modern twist - an engineered plank format which improves install time and efficiency in comparison to a traditional 'French Pattern' floor. With the modern engineered format, the new designs can be installed more quickly than a traditional French patterned floor, ideal for efficient installation in both domestic and commercial projects. The classic pattern can also be specified over underfloor heating, due to the environmentally sound and long-lasting multi-layer construction of sustainable oak and poplar within the boards.
Joining Kährs' design-led European Renaissance collection, a collection of unique and inspiring wooden floors based on the magnificent floor styles of bygone periods, the new design is available in two distinct colour tones - a golden natural brown 'Castello Rovere' and a rich, smokey tone 'Castello Fumo'.
