REINVENTING ASH As hard as oak, ash is pale in a typical Scandinavian style, with fine brown streaks and a small number of discreet knots. Our new ash single strip floors pay tribute to the proud history of this beautiful wood species, which lent its name to the first man, named Ask, in the Nordic Mythology. It is also known as the Royal Tree.

Ash Flow has been treated with white stain and Ash Stream with grey, enhancing the striking structure of the wood, whilst toning down the colour variations. Both feature our new, innovative ultra-matt light absorbing finish which highlights the extraordinarily feel of these floors.

One of the latest trends in wood flooring is grey – from shades of driftwood to charcoal. Grey coloured floors are made to look like they have aged over the years, creating a unique and warm patina.

A true classic, a natural oak wood floor will add a sense of warmth and natural beauty to your home. Depending on the design, they can be lively or calm, rustic or elegant.

Rich tones of honey and amber characterise our range of golden brown floors, designed to add a sense of classic sophistication and warmth to any interior.

Brown floors Nothing can create instant warmth quite like a brown wood floor. The rich, earthy tones of amber and tobacco create a perfect backdrop for both traditional and contemporary interiors.

Dark floors Dark wood floors create a solid ground. They bring a sense of sophistication and richness to the interior.

WELCOME TO KÄHRS WORLD OF WOOD FLOORS Ever since we started our business 160 years ago in Sweden, we have been driven by a passion to turn the natural beauty of wood into beautiful and sustainable floors. The result is a world leading position in wood flooring. Today, you can find Kährs wood floors in interiors all over the world. And although our range of floors is now extensive, covering a wide spectrum of colours, surface treatments and looks, there are a few things common for all. One of these is our focus on design. There is a small number of design features which can define or coordinate an interior as well as a carefully chosen floor. A beautiful floor will lift any interior – just like a pair of accentuating shoes have the power to lift any outfit. In this magazine, we will show you a few examples of how this can be achieved. We hope they will provide you with lots of inspiration and decorating ideas for your home. We strive for quality and innovation. Still based in the small town of Nybro, set in the deep forest of southern Sweden, a passion for perfection has been passed on from generation to generation in our company. Over the decades, we have been constantly exploring new ways of perfecting our methods of making the best, most beautiful and sustainable wood floors in the world. For more inspiration and useful information about wood and wood floors, please visit our web site, www.kahrs.com. There, you will also find a list of our retailers. We strongly recommend a visit to one of them - because nothing beats seeing and feeling our floors in real life to get a true grasp of their quality and beauty. Enjoy!

HOW TO CHOOSE A WOOD FLOOR To go with your heart is the best advice when it comes to choosing a wood floor. However, there are some important aspects to consider in the selection process. We have compiled a short checklist. The best thing to do is to visit one of our retailers – as nothing beats seeing and feeling our floors to get a true grasp of their design features. The impact of colour Light, dark or natural? The colour of the floor has a strong impact on how the room is perceived. A dark floor “swallows” a lot of light, but it also creates a sense of warmth and cosiness. A light wood floor reflects the light and adds space to the room.

A floor for every room Where are you planning to install the floor – and how much wear and tear will it be exposed to? A lacquered surface makes the floor easier to clean. Oil, meanwhile, brings out the fine structure and grain of the wood and enhances its natural colour. The hardness of the wood and the possibility to re-sand the floor should also be considered.

Lacquer or oil? In general, a lacquered surface reflects the light more than an oiled one. An exception to this rule is wood treated with our ultramatt lacquer – which makes the floor feel and look as if it was made from untreated, newly sawn timber. A matt lacquered surface is coarser than a satin lacquered surface.

Design for all senses Size matters The sense of space in a room is affected by the width and length of the planks, as well as the strip pattern of the floor. A general rule is to choose 1 or 2-strip floor for a large room and a 3-strip for a smaller room. Wide and long planks may be best suited for a larger space – but there are exceptions to every rule!

The impression of the floor is made up by what you see, as well as what you feel. Many of our floor designs include surfaces that have been handscraped and/or brushed to create a unique patina that speaks to all your senses. The look can be further enhanced with planks with bevelled edges.


Kährs Design Stories 21

Clean or rustic? Clean, calm and elegant – or rustic, rich in patina, knots and cracks? Kährs offers a selection of different gradings, each with a unique character. Grading depends on which part of the log is used when producing individual boards. We also use many types of surface treatments to create a wide diversity of styles.

Install in the direction of the light What type of light is there in the room? Natural light, the size of the windows, other lighting and direction of the light, all affect the perception of the floor. The general rule is to install the floor lengthwise towards the window. If the room is long and narrow with windows placed lengthwise, you will have to choose what you feel is more important to accentuate – the shape or light.

Consider the setting Other features of the room are important to consider. Installing your floor lengthwise will accentuate the shape of the room. Meanwhile, light floors coupled with light walls will enhance the sense of space, while a dark floor will ground the room. Dark floors combined with dark walls diminish the room – but can bring warmth and cosiness.

Care for your floor

Mix and match A good way of creating harmony in your home is to choose floors that match, but are optimal for each space. You could, for instance, choose a 1-strip floor for the living room and its 3-strip equivalent for the bedroom. Choosing matching mouldings and skirtings will further enhance the sense of unity.

Our floors are durable and easy to keep clean. With proper maintenance, your wood floor will retain its beauty for years to come. It is, however, worth bearing in mind that oiled floors demand more maintenance than lacquered ones. It’s also worth considering that light-stained and light-coloured species of wood are more sensitive to wear-and-tear than dark ones.

Nature is present in all corners of this home, dominated by shades of a steely grey sky and softened by a warm and natural oak wood floor. For the social areas of the house, Oak Dublin has been selected. The light honey nuances in this exclusive, single-strip oak floor range from faint tan to pale golden brown, resulting in an even expression. Only the finest oak timber is used, and each board is carefully brushed to bring out the character of the grain and highlight the natural texture of the wood. The hall and bedroom feature Oak Tower single-strip oak floor with a muted colour palette and long planks, adding depth to its clean expression.

It is difficult to imagine that it is located only half an hour’s drive from the city centre. Light flows freely through huge windows and is turned into golden rays by the single strip Oak Fredrik floor, with its rich, smoked finish, resulting in a warm and rustic expression. Four-sided bevelling at the edges highlights a classic full plank appearance, while hand-scraping enhances the aged feel of the floor.

DESIGNING A FLOOR

“Wood should look like wood” “I usually say that we have approximately 500 people working with design at Kährs. Ideas for new products and embryos for new designs can come from virtually anyone in the company. This is a reflection of the pride among our co-workers for our products, as well as their passion for wood and great knowledge about the raw material”, says Emanuel Lidberg, head of design at Kährs.


Kährs Design Stories 37

A Kährs wood floor is made to last for generations. According to Emanuel Lidberg this is an important reason why Kährs focus on classic designs that enhance the natural beauty of wood – a look that will never go out of fashion, he says. Meanwhile, new floors are continuously introduced. – There is a strong design tradition in the company. For decades, the company has been exploring new ways to bring out the best of the natural material. Increased knowledge of wood and how different wood species react in different environments, combined with new technology and surface treatments provide us with tools to continuously develop new floors, says Emanuel Lidberg – A great example is our new ultra-matt lacquer, which features a light absorbing finish that makes the floors feel and look like newly sawn timber. Strong daylight from big windows can create shiny reflections on a floor and confuse our sense of colour, but this treatment eliminates that effect.

– There is a strong design tradition in the company. For decades, the company has been exploring new ways to bring out the best of the natural raw material

and colour samples. A team consisting of specialists in different areas of wood floor production then worked closely together to deliver a number of prototype floors. – We always compare the prototypes to the original vision of the product. It is a constant search for ways to improve, striving towards perfection. How does the floor look, feel, smell and sound? It’s important how it is perceived by all senses – it shouldn’t only be beautiful to look at, but also be pleasant to walk on. From an idea to a prototype Just like with all other Kährs products, there was an extensive process of testing and evaluating before the ultra-matt floors were introduced. – Ideas for new products can originate from anywhere, but we always try to focus on the end user when we start the development process of new products. In the case of the ultra-matt floors, recent trends in architecture with bigger windows created a need to develop new surface treatment technologies Emanuel Lidberg explains. The process began by a design brief being drawn up that explained the vision for the new product, but also how it addresses future trends and end user needs. The design brief typically includes mood boards where things that can provide inspiration are collected – it can be anything, from fashion, interiors and electronics to pieces of textiles, textures

Follow your heart For the final step of the evaluation process, a mock-up, room size floor is produced and installed in the huge attic of Kährs’ Nybro production plant. Daylight from big windows and skylights allows for a thorough scrutiny of how the floor is perceived at different times of the day and in different light conditions. – When people ask me how they should choose a wood floor, I usually respond: “pick the one that makes your heart tick”. The same goes for us when we evaluate our new designs, they must be able to trigger positive emotions. But regardless of the design attributes we build into the product, our basic philosophy is that wood should look like wood, Emanuel Lidberg says.

COLOUR REPORT 18 A turbulent and increasingly complex world calls for cosy, kind and embracing homes. This is what leading paint producer Dulux has focussed on in their analysis of the colour trends for 2018. “We need our homes to be a warm oasis where we can relax with our family and friends – a place for nurturing our inside rather than an Instagram perfect outside”, Per Nimér, Design Manager at Dulux explains. Below you will find the main trends the company has forecasted for the year.

THE HEART WOOD HOME A Heart Wood home is a welcoming home where you feel instantly at ease, surrounded by the gentle grey-pink tones of heartwood. Delicately textured fabrics offer a subtle contrast to smooth marble and copper, and well-worn furniture sits alongside newer pieces with geometric forms. The Heart Wood Home palette reflects this versatility, with soft cocoa flowing into bolder shades of ink blue and purple.

It is above all, a space for drawing inspiration from favourite musicians, authors and artists – somewhere to welcome like-minded friends. There is a sense of energy with vibrant colour focal points and plants hanging from walls. This hub may be small, but the design is clever.

ATTEBO

A dark wood floor to soften the mood The home was designed as an open-plan living space with the bedroom separated from the main room with a crittall-style glass. Floor-toceiling windows were added to let natural light in. The impression has been softened by using a dark wood floor. Oak Attebo is 3-strip oak floor with deep and dark flashes of charcoal with an underlaying glow of warm nuances. It features a dynamic surface treatment that is handscraped, sawn, brushed and bevelled.
