BUILD DUBAI BREAKFAST

Sarah

Last week we starting off Tuesday by hosting the inspiring group of Build Dubai members for a delicious Scandinavian breakfast and presentation in our showroom!

Keeping in line with our heritage and culture, we served a Scandinavian breakfast created by Smørrebrød – including the famous open-faced sandwiches and fresh smoothies.

The breakfast also included three inspirational talks and lots of mingling and networking. Overall a really successful event, and we look forward to hosting more of them in the future!

EARTHY LUXE

Sarah

We are feeling inspired by interiors with an earthy palette of golden straw balanced off with dramatic stone greys and airy whites. This combination of hues, especially when in contrasting textures, creates a depth that reflects an understated, minimalistic luxe that we love.

Our new Floor of the Month, Kährs Oak Vinga, has a beautiful pale grey hue with natural warm undertones – resulting in a temperate expression. Occasional saw marks accentuate the floor’s restored appearance. Each board is meticulously hand-scraped and carefully brushed to bring out the character of the grain and highlight the natural texture of the timber.

MODERN RETRO

Sarah

We’re loving deep emerald greens in combination with smokey brown wood and contrasting whites and brass. Interiors inspired by the iconic mid-century modern era and its nature-focused colour and material palette. Where the linear meets the organic – blurring out the lines between feminine and masculine. An interior that creates a sense of cosy comfort and timeless sophistication at the same time.

Our new Floor of the Month Kährs Oak Smoke has beautiful tobacco-brown hues enhanced by its richly smoked finish. Each board is carefully brushed to bring out the character of the grain and highlight the natural texture of the wood.

We are now offering with a special 20% discount on Kährs Oak Smoke during August 2017. Contact us for more information.

19TH CENTURY APARTMENT

Sarah

Last week we got the chance to stay at a recently renovated apartment in Stockholm, Sweden, which had a generous influx of natural light through large windows, high ceilings and open spaces, beautiful wall colours by Jotun paints, elegant high skirting panels and our rustic Kährs Oak Sture wood flooring.

The apartment lies within a building that was built in 1883, and although it has recently been renovated, the owners have made sure pay homage to the charming old features while giving it a fresh and updated look.

Classic muted tones in greens, greys and browns have been used, while all ceilings, fixtures, frames and mouldings are kept white – enhancing that airy feeling that ties together the space. The use of contrasting materials (e.g. natural wood, stainless steel and marble) creates depth and a layered feeling. Inspiration deluxe!

ALL-WHITE

Sarah

This apartment in the sustainable Hammarby Sjöstad in Stockholm features very bright, light-filled interiors and elegant luxurious textures in wood, marble, velvet and brass.

The Kährs Oak Limestone wood floor enhances the natural light in the apartment with its whisper-white finish and 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. The matt lacquer finish eliminates glare while protecting the wood from daily wear.

TESTIMONIAL: ULRIKA

Sarah

Our client, Ulrika Hedlund, Co-founder and Managing Director of Dubai-based Business Productivity, transformed a standard Rimal apartment in Jumeriah Beach Residence into a beautiful family home.

Ulrika, a Swedish native, wanted to create a cozy home for herself, her husband and three children that reflected their Swedish heritage and enhanced the beautiful views over JBR and Palm Jumeirah, as well as the glittering turquoise sea.

Along with other major changes done by Noaf Interiors, Ulrika selected two of our classic Swedish wood floors: the 2-strip Kährs Oak Verona & 3-strip Kährs Oak Siena instead of the standard floor tiles to complete the overall look and feel of her home.

A: The floor really makes a huge difference, making the apartment feel like “home”.

Q: Did you find our installers kept your house clean?

Q: Do you feel that this flooring increases the value of your home?

BALI DREAMING

Sarah

Inspired by our Floor of the Month, we are dreaming of the bohemian and tropical island of Bali. Neutral Balinese interiors with a Nordic touch, that together create a calm and harmonious feeling. Raw and natural materials such as linen, wood, rattan and bamboo in neutral white and beige tones, with accents of black that add an edgy feel.

Our Floor of the Month for May, Kährs Pale has a semi-transparent white colour with balanced contrast that allow the warm oak nuances to shine through. The perfect base for a light, nordic style interior.

HEART OF GOLD

Sarah

Inspired by our new Floor of the Month for April, we are loving warm, burnt yellow and golden sun-kissed tones inspired by honey and ripe rye during harvest time, combined with earthy hazelnut tones and crisp whites for a fresh yet grounded spring feeling.

Our Floor of the Month, Kährs Oak Siena FSC® has a calm appearance with a certain degree of variation in the grain. A true Swedish classic that will never go out of style.

MADE WITH PASSION

Sarah

What makes a good product great? We’re certain that the key to success lies in the people that produce it. It’s their passion and knowledge that ensures that the quality we’ve been delivering over the years continues to distinguish our floors. Many of our employees have been working at Kährs for decades – in some cases generations – passing on their knowledge to new family members, friends and neighbours that start working at Kährs.

In celebration of Kährs 160 year anniversary this year, Kährs focuses on the people behind the brand’s success. This is the first video in a series titled Made with Passion – focusing on the faces of Kährs, their stories and learning what drives them to make Kährs wood floors on a daily basis in our factory in Nybro, Sweden.
