WOFL

Sarah

We visited the recently opened WOFL bakery in Jumeirah Beach Residence this week. Not only were we struck by the delicious (no exaggeration!) scent of freshly baked waffles surrounding the little building, but also by the bakery’s interiors.

We have seen our wood flooring installed in many different ways over our years here, but seeing our Kährs Oak Cornwall installed with graphic hexagonal tiles was so interesting! The combination created such a beautiful look.

ABOVE THE CLOUDS

Sarah

This penthouse in Emirates Crown in Dubai Marina is one of our favourite projects of all time. Designed by Marie Laurent Architecture, the home features carefully curated iconic designer furniture and art, as well as an incredible view over Dubai Marina and Palm Jumeirah.

The open-plan design and natural light of the space enhances the natural beauty of the massive planks of our rustic 1-strip Casa Oak wood floor by Kährs Grande Collection. Each plank is an impressive 2800 mm long and 260 mm wide, thereby giving a maximal feeling of the oak’s texture. This floor certainly lives up to the collection’s Grande name!

Industrial Nature

Sarah

Here’s another example of how industrial elements with mute colours and raw organic materials such as cotton, wood and jute combine together beautifully to create visual magic.

This coffee shop in Barcelona, designed by INTSIGHT has a graphic look and highly textured feel that adds layers and in turn, a lot of intrigue – making this café a real hipster heaven.

DARING TO BE DIFFERENT

Sarah

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.

TRÈS, TRÈS CHIC

Sarah

This absolutely gorgeous Mirador villa in Arabian Ranches is the ultimate representation of the romantic Shabby Chic style.

The owners of this fabulous home couldn’t have selected a more suitable floor than Oak Danaborg by Kährs Craftsman Collection to bring all the beautiful, distressed and rustic/romantic furniture and decorative items together.

What a great representation of how to stray away from the norm and make your home chic yet personal and child-friendly. We L-O-V-E this home!

A REGAL HOME

Sarah

This apartment in the Dubai Marina not only has a breathtaking view over the infamous Palm Jumeirah, but has an interior that is beautifully balanced between dramatic and harmonious with its classic-modern/European Renaissance decor. The stunning floor, Ash Gotland, just adds to its overall perfection – a better suited floor could not have been chosen for this home’s personality.
