Kährs new Harmony Collection reflects contemporary woodland trend
Kährs new Harmony Collection reflects the key trend for rustic natural surfaces with subtle design features. The cost effective range includes fourteen designs, each crafted in Sweden from sustainable European oak and ash. Hand-brushing removes pulpy softwood to expose natural graining and annual rings, which reinforce the natural look. Some designs are bevelled and smoked to add further distinction – and each floor benefits from a durable, easy-care matt lacquer or oil prefinish.
All floors have a three-strip design, which complements all interior styles. Pale toned colour options include Oak Frost and Oak Dew – which have a strong Scandinavian feel, on-trend grey toned Oak Limestone and the lightest floor, white Ash Alabaster, which also has a micro-bevel along all four sides. Mid-toned options include Oak Citrus, Granite, Stone and Ember, in shell pink, camel brown and golden tones. The darkest floors – Oak Smoke, Kernel, Bean, Soil, Moss and Lava – have a distinct rich tone, in earthy and nut brown shades, through to ebony.
Each design from the Collection features Kährs ethical, high performance construction. Based on Kährs original design, patented in 1941, it uses sustainable hardwood down to the floor’s joint, with fast-growing spruce, pine and poplar below. This method, alongside Kährs Woodloc® 5S joint, provides greater stability, promotes fast installation and eliminates gapping throughout the lifetime of the floor. All designs can be laid on most dry, level surfaces – and over underfloor heating systems.
