Kährs introduces a new type of flooring for use in both residential and commercial spaces. Kährs Aware Collection is a floor with a truly authentic wood appearance, based on natural and recycled materials, and, with a durability that can be compared to that of a traditional vinyl floor.
Kährs celebrates +80-year anniversary of its groundbreaking parquet invention with a retro inspired collection.
Around the world today, multi-layered, or engineered wood flooring is a standard for residential spaces. Kährs proudly acknowledges its revolutionary invention and patent in 1941 as the start of a new era in parquet flooring. As a tribute to its history as well as the future, Kährs introduces the new wood flooring collection Beyond Retro.

The trend to bring a feeling of nature into our homes keeps getting stronger. Ground is a collection of floors in earthy tones, inspired by colors found in nature - from white chalk and coral, to warm sand and the darker tones of clay and seed. A collection based on timeless, natural soft colors, inviting the nature indoors.
In 2012, as part of a mission to offer "floors beyond expectations", Kährs Group acquired Upofloor, an industry pioneer in resilient flooring. Upofloor is now being brought fully under the Kährs brand, and moving forward, the Upofloor resilient products will be Kährs branded and become part of the Kährs product offering. While the Upofloor brand name is changing, the products will remain the same: high-performing, extremely durable, aesthetically bold and with excellent sustainability properties.
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.
