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.

BEFORE AND AFTER

Sarah

Last week we visited our client’s apartment with our trusted partner Studio Zee for a photoshoot of their newly renovated home. We had been to the apartment back in November 2016, before renovations began, in order to get some before shots – and we are so happy we did because what a transformation it was!

Here are a some before and after pictures of the client’s apartment in Jumeirah Beach Residence, Dubai:

As you can see, the client made huge some pretty big changes in their apartment – including going from the standard tiles to our natural Kährs Oak Verona wood flooring. We love!

SWEDISH BREAKFAST FIKA

Sarah

Yesterday morning we had an intimate Swedish Breakfast Fika in our showroom. Fika is a concept in Swedish culture with the basic meaning “to have coffee”, often accompanied with pastries or cookies. As it was breakfast, we arranged some Swedish delicacies from Dubai-based catering company Smørrebrød – including open sandwiches with diverse toppings such as Swedish meatballs, gravadlax and Cambozola cheese; and traditional cinnamon buns and cookies.

With regards to the styling, we wanted to create a natural, Scandinavian feeling that ties in with the overall feeling in our showroom. Contrasting materials, such as linen and rustic wood, complement each other so well and create a cozy feeling. Natural materials and creating beauty in the contrasts was our main inspiration for the styling.

For the Smörgåsbord (buffet), we used a graphite grey linen tablecloth to soften the wooden bar counter and wooden trays to serve the food on. For the table setting, we had black stoneware plates and ivory linen napkins from Crate & Barrel – decorated with wild forest florals from Bliss and personalised butter knives from Småland tied together with jute rope. This simple combination creates a natural, nordic spring feeling.

BALI DREAMING

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.

WHY KÄHRS?

Sarah

Wood is the most sustainable, beautiful and versatile flooring material there is. That’s why we only work with wood. Few materials can add as much warmth and character as wood. It softens the most minimalistic designs, while accentuating a more traditional interior. And although trends may come and go, quality and style never go out of fashion. That’s why a wood floor from Kährs will be as appreciated tomorrow as it is today.

Here are 6 simple reasons why you should choose Kährs wood flooring:

1. A LONG TRADITION

Kährs is the oldest wood flooring manufacturer in the world still in operation, with a 160-year history dating back to 1857. It is also the most innovative with a tradition of leading the development of the modern parquet floor.

Kährs was founded as a family business 160 years ago in the small town of Nybro in southern Sweden – a region known for its wild beauty, rugged scenery and dense forests.

2. THE MOST INNOVATIVE FLOORING COMPANY

In 1941, Kährs was granted a patent for a multi-layer wood flooring construction – the world’s first engineered wood floor. The construction ensures that the floor remains intact despite seasonal fluctuations of humidity.

In 1999, Kährs was the first floor manufacturer to introduce a mechanical glueless joint system – the ingenious Woodloc® system. This system revolutionized the wood flooring market. With the Woodloc® 5S joint, the system has been even further perfected.

Kährs has put a lot of effort and research into finding surface treatments that are strong enough to withstand daily wear and tear, but thin enough to enhance the natural beauty of the wood. All our surface treatments are naturally free from solvents, formaldehyde and isocyanate.

3. ENDLESS DESIGN OPTIONS

Whatever the size of your room or interior style, there’s a Kährs floor that will enhance the space. The floors come in a great variety of colours and species, sizes, patterns and finishes.

Brushed, handscraped, bevelled, silky smooth or matt. Each Kährs plank is unique and individually treated, according to its own unique composition of knots and graining.

The ultimate feeling and look of the floor depends on the surface treatment. Kährs provides several options. The silk matt lacquer gives the floor a smooth surface, and the matt lacquer will make it appear untreated, while the nature oil gives the floor a wonderfully natural feeling.

4. BEAUTY WITH A CONSCIENCE

Kährs multi-layer construction means that the wood raw material is utilised as efficiently as possible. At the plant in Nybro nothing goes to waste. The parts of the logs that cannot be used for floors become bio-fuel that heats up the production facilities. About 45,000 people in the neighbourhood also enjoy the warmth of our recycled wood.

Kährs production process has been designed to have minimal impact on the environment. Over the years, the company has introduced a number of manufacturing and flooring innovations that have enabled a more responsible, green production.

Kährs Swedish heritage characterises everything the company stands for, from high regard for quality and design to concern for the environment. It earned the company an ISO 14001 environmental management certification more than a decade ago.

5. SATISFACTION GUARANTEED

Kährs has been manufacturing quality, multilayered wood floors for more than 60 years – floors that have been perfected over the years. This means that we can offer more extensive guarantees than any other wood floor manufacturer. Combined with a complete care and maintenance program, Kährs offers a guarantee of up to 30 years.

Kährs floors works perfectly well combined with underfloor heating. One reason is the strong Woodloc® joints, another the stable and well-balanced construction of the board.

5. COMPLETE SYSTEM

Kährs offers a complete flooring system where every detail – from the skirtings to the wide range of installation and maintenance products – has been design to enhance the beauty of strength of the floor.

The smallest things often make the biggest difference. This is true of a Kährs floor, where the highest level of skill and craftsmanship is added to every detail, including the skirting boards and different types of mouldings.

Kährs Care and Maintenance range covers all you need for daily care as well as regular maintenance of the floor. It also includes products for a damaged floor.
