CITY MOTIONS

Sarah

Jotun's City Motions Palette from their Colour Trends 2018 inspired the greige-brown moodboard theme for our Floor of the Month for February 2018: Kährs Oak Granite.

This palette from Jotun's 2018 collection includes colours such as the pale grey Bare; the rich brown Norwegian Wood; and warm beige Raw Canvas - "inspired by Copenhagen and London, Brooklyn and Berlin – all pockets of modernity, brimming with creative culture" and epitomises cool, clean lines balanced with softness and warmth. Where industrial meets comfort.

Kährs Oak Granite is the perfect combination of both. The cool cement-grey stain on this smoked oak floor allows the warmer tones of the wood to seep through, resulting in a beautifully rustic expression. Each board is carefully brushed to bring out the character of the grain and highlight the natural texture of the timber. The matt lacquer finish eliminates glare while protecting the wood from daily wear.

Kährs Oak Granite 3-strip is currently available in stock in Dubai. Visit our showroom in Sidra Tower or contact us on tel. +971 4 369 55 69 for more information.

KICK-OFF 2018

Sarah

Yesterday we spent the day at the beautiful Fairmont The Palm hotel for our annual kick-off, reviewing the year that has passed and planning for the year ahead.

After a full conference day, we proceeded to have drinks overlooking the beautiful sunset, and finally made our way over to The Chef's Palette by Gaggenau - a unique cooking studio run by talented Michelin star trained Chef de Cuisine, Romain van Durmen.

During our Spanish-themed masterclass, we learned how to make a delicious paella and chocolate-dipped churros. It's a great team-bonding experience- and Chef Romain and his colleagues were all extremely pleasant, amusing and informative. The perfect end to a great day out with the team!

ULTRA VIOLET

Sarah

Pantone have announced their colour of the year fo 2018: Ultra Violet. A complex colour with lots of attitude and a high-tech/futuristic feel.

It can be a little overwhelming to decorate with- so to create a light yet layered cosy feeling, we recommend combining a variety of violet shades with light creams, greys, whites and touches of green in diverse natural textures and materials.

Our latest Floor of the Month, Kährs Oak Pale, has the perfect white stain with a warm undertone, which will balance out the richness of the violets.

BASTA!

Sarah

BASTA! is a new Italian restaurant in Dubai, located inside the recently opened Renaissance Downtown Hotel Dubai. Established by Michelin-starred chef and restauranteur David Myers, this restaurant offers the food and feeling of a Roman trattoria, Florentine steakhouse and Neapolitan pizzeria in one space.

The interiors, designed by WA International, feature an airy industrial design with a vintage feeling- combining earthy tones and raw materials such as brick, wood, leather and oxidised metal. Our expressive Kährs Oak Sparuto wood flooring has been selected and installed in a custom herringbone pattern, adding to the cozy feel of the impressive space.

We can't wait to book ourselves a table and dine under the melancholic gaze of the beautiful Sophia Loren 🇮🇹

NORDIC CHRISTMAS

Sarah

December is here and we are officially in a festive mood! This year, we're feeling inspired by a very minimalistic Christmas reminiscent of a Nordic winter landscape, with a white base; greens and browns as accent hues; and a touch of metallic shimmer for an understated elegance.

Our Floor of the Month for December Kährs Oak Limestone has a whisper-white finish and a clean and even expression. Each board is carefully brushed to bring out the character of the grain and highlight the natural texture of the timber.

DOWNTOWN DESIGN 2017

Sarah

For the concept of our booth at Downtown Design 2017, the theme was "Back to Nature" as well as a celebration of Kährs' 160-year anniversary. We wanted visitors to get back in touch with the basic human need for the natural and organic in today's high-tech world.

The colours were kept earthy and autumnal, inspired by the new ultramatt collections, Lux & Lumen.

Completed with beautiful Scandinavian chairs and lamps from D.Tales, and fresh flowers and eucalyptus leaves from Florette.

L’AUTOMNE

Our Floor of the Month for November Kährs Oak Siena FSC® is a classic 3-strip wood floor in natural FSC-certified oak, that ranges from brown butter highlights to caramel lowlights for a classic expression.
