DuChateau Floors Unveils The Heritage Timber Edition for 2012

NEW Collection that replicates the patina of reclaimed building materials

DuChateau Floors unveils their NEW Heritage Timber Edition for 2012 - a collection that replicates the patina of reclaimed distressed building materials. With the natural look and charm of reclaimed barn wood, DuChateau Floors transforms the wood into planks of unparalleled beauty.

The original character of recycled wood is celebrated with artfully distressed surface scrapes, nail holes, notches, and saw kerf marks reminiscent of salvaged textures. The Heritage Timber Edition embraces warm browns and weathered grays to give this flooring a luxurious timeworn look.

DuChateau Floors 2012 collection

The new FSC-Certified collection is available in Chalk, Coal, Lintel, Slat and Trestle. Combining old world craftsmanship with luxurious modern design, The Heritage Timber Collection is suitable for interior commercial, retail and residential flooring, ceiling and wall panel applications. The FSC European white oak planks are 7-7/16" wide, but have a random width appearance due to the antique surface quality. The flooring is tongue and groove for easy installation and engineered for added stability.

As with all DuChateau Floors, The Heritage Timber Edition utilizes an environmentally friendly hard wax oil finish, offering excellent durability and renewability, while penetrating deep into wood fibers and protecting from within. This environmentally friendly, zero-VOC, preservative-free, unique lustrous finish maximizes the wood's natural character and beauty. Natural ingredients include: sunflower, soybean, and thistle oil, combined with natural waxes carnauba and canella. It also contains tiny silicone dioxide (glass) beads, which make the floor more resilient, lustrous and benzene-free.

"Our Heritage Timber Edition brings new life to the original character of vintage wood with its beautifully irregular marks of time and old craftsmen," says Misael Tagle, CEO and cofounder of DuChateau Floors. "The collection delivers visual movement and authentic rustic character to both residential and commercial spaces."

European Style Hardwood Floors Combine Pure Elements & Luxurious Design

DuChateau Floors Introduces Eco-Friendly Hard Wax Oil to the U.S. Market

Originally developed in Holland, DuChateau Floors feature antique reproduction hard wax oil floors that reflect styles from centuries ago. Polyurethane, acrylic, and aluminum oxide finished floors have become so standard in the United States and Canada that many people don't realize they have another option - a hard wax oil wood floor, a repairable floor finish used in Europe's most famous museums and buildings. DuChateau Floors have a character of timelessness that fits with nearly every d├ęcor. Combining old world craftsmanship with luxurious modern design, DuChateau Floors are suitable for interior commercial, retail and residential flooring, ceiling and wall panel applications.

Eco-Friendly Modern Twist on Vintage-Style Flooring

Using all FSC-certified wood, DuChateau Floors puts a modern twist on vintage-style flooring. Keeping true to their hardwood floor production philosophy, DuChateau creates textured hardwood floors with changing grain patterns of the natural wood characterizing true artistic design.

Eight hand-crafted collections from renewable hardwoods are available; Chateau, Vernal, Riverstone, Terra, Fine Sawn, Atelier, New Classics, and Palais. These collections feature long-length, wide-plank or parquet patterned floors that have been hand scraped, smoked, and/or wire-brushed for a truly one-of-a-kind appearance.

The Riverstone Collection is their latest series, an evolution of hand- sculpted hardwood flooring that blends beautifully with interiors old and new. Natural distressing and raised knots give the floors a raw and organic contour. The Riverstone Collection effortlessly merges modern and rustic to create a truly original and inspiring floor.

"Some of the most impactful spaces blend modern and rustic elements," says Misael Tagle, CEO and cofounder of DuChateau Floors. "Combing raw textures, natural materials and old with new creates interiors that are sophisticated but comforting and surprisingly accessible."

Alternative Renewable Floor Finish

One of the first to bring hard wax oil to the U.S. market, DuChateau Floors offer excellent durability and renewability while allowing the wood to breathe and live with you. Instead of coating the floor with a shiny layer of plastic, pure hard wax oil penetrates into wood fibers and protects from within. This environmentally friendly, zero-VOC, preservative-free, unique lustrous finish maximizes the wood's natural character and beauty, and gains a rich patina and refinement as it ages. Natural ingredients in DuChateau Hard wax Oil include; sunflower, soybean and thistle oil, combined with natural waxes carnauba and canella. It also contains tiny silicone dioxide (glass) beads, which make the floor more resilient and lustrous and benzene-free, low-odor mineral spirits.

Unlike with polyurethane or aluminum oxide finishes, DuChateau Hard Wax Oil natural finish allows easy spot repairs. There's no need to strip the whole floor or even to remove old hard wax oil. For repairs, just lightly sand the damaged area along its grain and buff with maintenance oil. And as it has been tested with time, a DuChateau Hard Wax Oiled finished floor will last for generation after generation.
