Montaigne Brussels

French Oak — Belgium

The Montaigne collection combines the timeless beauty and characteristic grain of French oak with an extensive palette of rich color variations. Brussels has a distinctive light warm gray hue that is achieved through a unique, multi-layer reactionary process.

Beneath the Surface

A History of Quality

The raw oak in the Montaigne collection comes from forests in regions throughout Europe. These areas are carefully maintained by forest managers, and trees are selected in adherence with strict standards according to their maturity, quality and suitability for use in flooring applications. After sourcing, the logs are transported to Belgium where they are cut specifically from different sections of each log to yield usable planks for both solid and engineered formats. After fabrication, every plank is hand-finished individually using a reactive oxidation process that naturally transforms the color of the wood without the use of synthetic dyes or pigments.

Why do we love it?

The blend of traditional oak characteristics with a uniquely contemporary sensibility.

How does it look?

Montaigne Brussels has a light warm gray coloration with rich grain and a contemporary finish.

How does it wear?

Minor to moderate wear can be expected over time, depending on traffic. Wood discoloration is inherent with consistent exposure to UV rays.

Where can I use it?

Suitable for indoor use in moderate and high traffic areas.
