A true understanding of the Kings of France 18th Century French Oak Floors would mean you have done your research, you have seen other wood floors on the market and you know these wood floors just have no comparison.  With unparalleled beauty, each oak plank is aged, not by pigments or colorants, but by unique oxidation procedures working with the natural tannin of the oak. Each plank is hand worked giving unbridled character to a floor.  Each oak plank will continue to age over time in one's home.  And in the Cast Iron Collection - this floor called Cast Iron Grey, authentic patina rivets are hand worked into the wood.  Metal + Wood?  For those who appreciate these materials...this is something just out of heaven!

And as it is said, a picture is worth a thousand words...what then is worth a video? With much more videos to come in our new Historic Decorative Materials YouTube Channel, please enjoy the ambiance, authenticity and beauty of these unique aged grey French oak floors that is the Kings of France Collection.
