Kährs introduces Life – A wooden floor combining the best of two worlds

Kährs, a leading Swedish manufacturer and distributor of flooring introduces a new type of wooden floor. Kährs Life is a range of wooden floors with properties that are close to those of durable vinyl floors. Kährs Life combines the best of two worlds with the new collection where the beauty of the wood meets the practical properties of a vinyl floor.

Kährs has been working with wood for over 160 years. Quality and innovation are close to the heart of the Swedish company that has become known for delivering premium flooring for almost a century. Today there is a strong trend towards more sustainable and natural wooden floors but also wooden floors with extra durable properties

The demand for real wooden floors with extra durable properties is strong in today’s market. To meet this growing market demand, Kährs introduces Life, a new range of affordable wood flooring with outstanding durability and a modern design just in line with the current colour trends. Life even passes the tests for Class 33, i.e. Heavy Commercial Use, which is the highest standard of veneer flooring, meaning it withstands wear and tear as well as having outstanding impact resistance.

It’s the perfect balance of aesthetic and the practical, where function meets the beauty of the wood. The matt lacquer protects the floor making it more dirt resistant and easy to clean while keeping the natural and beautiful wood feeling.

“We are proud to bring our new collection Life to the market as we see a great demand for a real wooden floor that is made to last through real life, still with no compromise on the design aspects,” Charlotta Persfell, CMO at Kährs says. 

With a total thickness of 7 mm, Life is also ideal for renovation as it fits with most existing thresholds and doors. Due to the outstanding durability and the fact that it is made for Heavy Commercial Use, Life can be used in numerous places such as hotel rooms, conference areas, offices, homes and summer houses. Life is available in different sizes, all of which are available in eight contemporary, stained colours and two natural choices, pure oak and pure walnut.
