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

Because of the individualized nature of the materials we sell, many of the products have significant variation in size, shape, color, texture and thickness. These irregularities are inherent in hand-made and natural materials such as ours. It is the responsibility of the owner/purchaser and those acting on behalf of the owner such as the designer, architect, contractor or installer to verify that the material specified is appropriate for its final application and to review and approve all materials before the materials are shipped. Samples are available on request. Samples are given as an indication of a particular product and are for reference only. Due to the inherent variation in the size, shape, thickness, texture and color of our materials, individual samples cannot be considered exact representations.
Through expert photography, every effort has been made to faithfully represent our products and materials on this website. However, due to lighting and color variations, no picture can be considered an exact representation of the material being shown.
