The Kings of France 18th Century French Oak Flooring - this is an aged French oak wood floor with a vintage surface unlike any other on the market. The color is not arrived by stains or oils, but by an oxidation process working within the oak tannin that actually changes the composition of the wood fibers. This is a 7-10 step process with drying time in between each plank.  The boards are then individually worked and crafted to achieve the authenticity of an 18th century patina. The texture and finish cannot be reproduced on-site. Over time, these wood floors will continue to age and patina in one's home.  They are stunning.
