The Kings of France 18th Century French Oak Floors are extraordinary. The colors of these aged French oak planks are not created by applying stains or oils, but by using an oxidation method that works within the tannin of the oak itself. This changes the composition of the wood fibers where color is created authentically. The resulting French oak floors appear salvaged or reclaimed and partners beautifully with modern interiors softening lines and creating a one-of-a-kind aesthetic.
