As patterned wood floor designs continue to be a popular choice for contemporary and traditional interiors alike, we have extended our wood flooring portfolio with a brand new collection of large format herringbone wood designs, in styles described as ‘Modern Classic’.
Following the successful launch last year of the Kährs Lux and Lumen ultra matt lacquer flooring collections, we now introduce four brand new, Nordic inspired whitewashed and grey toned ultra matt designs to the range.
Kährs have been awarded the ‘Best of Design’ award on Houzz®, the leading platform for home renovation and design. Kährs was chosen by more than 40 million monthly unique users that comprise the Houzz community.
Popular Scandinavian-style interiors blog 'These Four Walls' has collaborated with Kährs for a scandi-inspired, soft and minimalist living room makeover. Kährs worked with founder Abi Dare to find the perfect hard wearing and stylish floor to work alongside minimalist decor.
Two scandi-inspired and sustainable oak engineered wood flooring designs, Nouveau Lace and Harmony Shell, have joined the Kährs range this year - as Scandinavian influenced flooring, decor and soft furnishings continue to be a popular choice for interiors.
Kährs' French Pattern wood flooring has been shortlisted in the 2018 'International Design & Architecture Awards', within the 'Hard Flooring' category. The awards, held by 'design et al' magazine, celebrate some of the best design schemes, product launches and innovation from throughout the world.
Global market-leading wood flooring brand Kährs have launched a new inspirational website. The new website features a new virtual showroom, an inspiring 'Design Stories' interiors blog, and guidance on how to find and care for your perfect wood floor.
Kährs have introduced a new timeless 'French Pattern' hard flooring design to their range of sustainable wood floors. The classic design features a modern twist - an engineered plank format for a quicker install in comparison to a traditional 'French Pattern' floor.
Kährs will be celebrating a theme of ‘Raw Design’ at London’s Clerkenwell Design Week, with the launch of new nature-inspired and sustainable ‘ultra matt’ wood flooring designs.
2018 is the year of dusky pink and bold purple shades for walls and decor, with shimmering copper and rose gold home accessories also a key interior trend for the year. Natural and grey-tone oak floors offer a minimalist and timeless base for the delicate pastel, powerful purple and metallic hues of the year.
Kährs have launched two new ultra-matt wood flooring collections, Lux and Lumen. Recently winning Gold for 'Best Flooring' at the 2017 House Beautiful Awards, Kährs' Lux collection includes nine one-strip plank format designs in an array of natural colours, which are mirrored in Lumen's three-strip designs.
Smoky rich tones look set to steer 2018 wood trends, as architects and designers seek out muted nuances and hearty hues. The strong trend for patterned wood floors, in retro-inspired Chevrons, is also set to continue, along with the enduring popularity of single-strip wide plank formats.
Now, it’s been scientifically proven that wood has a positive impact on us. The European research project Wood2New, which ran for three years and was finalised in February 2017, shows that using wood as a construction material benefits both the environment and our health.
