Wood is the most eco-friendly, beautiful and versatile flooring material there is. That’s why we only work with wood. Few materials can add as much warmth and atmosphere as wood. It softens the most minimalistic designs, while accentuating the mood of a more traditional interior. And although trends may come and go, quality and true style never goes out of fashion. That’s why a wood floor from Kährs will always be the perfect choice.
Kährs of Sweden is the oldest wood floor manufacturer in the world still in operation, with a history that dates back to 1857. It is also the most innovative, with a history of wood floor inventions and innovations that span decades. They include the world’s first patented multi-layer wood floor in 1941; the world’s first water-based lacquer system in 1984, and the first ISO 14001 environmental management certification in 1997.
Compared to a traditional solid wood floor, our patented construction is 75% more stable. A Kährs floor resists warping, buckling and cracking, even as temperature and humidity change throughout the seasons. The construction creates a perfectly balanced wood floor that can tolerate even the most dramatic climate changes. This also makes our wood floors the perfect partner for underfloor heating.
When Kährs launched Woodloc® in 2000 – the first glue-free joint system in the world – it revolutionized the wood flooring industry. This ingenious joint system locks the boards together mechanically, creating a completely gap-free floor.
Whichever surface treatment you choose for your Kährs floor, you can be sure that it will both enhance and protect the natural beauty of the wood. All Kährs surface treatments are naturally free from solvents, formaldehyde and isocyanate. They also make the floor really easy to clean and maintain.
Ever since the start, we’ve been guided by a firm commitment to quality, the environment and sustainability. This permeates everything we do, from the selection of the best raw material from our 3,000 timber suppliers, through the different design treatments we use, to our clean and low emission production.
Brushed, hand-scraped, bevelled, silky smooth or matt. Each Kährs plank is unique and individually treated, according to its own unique composition of knots and graining. The result is a dynamic surface that transforms in different lights and depending on which angle it’s viewed from. A Kährs floor never fails to amaze and feed the senses!
Whatever the size of room or interior style, there’s a Kährs floor that will enhance the space. Our wood floors come in many wood species, sizes, patterns and finishes.
From pure white to inky black. From warm russet to soft grey. Kährs offers the widest range of colours and shades. To obtain the right nuance, we use staining techniques and different surface treatments in our design processes. These enhance the natural tone and texture of the wood, without disguising the fabulous natural feel.
