French Oak has long been recognized for it’s beauty and strength. The slow growing White Oak forests have been sustainably managed and harvested by the French since the 17th century, ensuring that the nation would always have an ample supply of the wood used for everything from the barrels that aged the finest Burgundy, to the ships that sailed in Napoleon’s fleet.
For a floor possessing a certain “je ne sais quoi” our French Oak is an excellent choice. Harvested in the north of France, this flooring is milled from live sawn oak. This process allows for wide planks that celebrate the wood’s natural beauty through a mix of clear grades, figuring and knots.
