Marri timber flooring springs to life in your home, brimming with natures texture and personality. Predominately a light blond-coloured timber, Marri has distinctive black gum veins interwoven throughout the boards, and is a striking backdrop to the current industrial look, a rustic homely feel, or a simple contemporary home.
And your Marri floorboards will remain looking as stunning on day one, as they will forever, with Lifewood’s revolutionary Stabilised Solid technology. Scientifically developed and embodying years of experience with timber milling, a Stabilised Solid board has a patented, engineered core, which stops the boards and floor from cupping or warping due to the reaction of moisture with the natural timber product.
The Stabilised Solid core is secured between a thick layer on top of the best quality and most beautiful looking part of the Marri timber, and the base, which is a whole plank of the same uninterrupted timber. Using the same timber type for the whole floorboard creates balance and in harmony within the board, and incredible stability. It is also the most environmentally sustainable flooring practice in the world.
Throughout the boards construction are multiple moisture barriers, with all layers bonded together with emission-safe glue. On the finished product, all six sides of each and every floorboard are coated in an extra moisture barrier.
Your Lifewood Marri timber flooring comes with a lifetime guarantee.
Marri is Jarrah’s neighbor, growing along side it in Western Australian forests. It matches Jarrah for its strength and hardness, and is considered one of the premium Australian hardwoods. Featuring a combination of lighter tones of caramel-yellow, pale brown, fawn and white, with striking dark veins running through the wood, Marri is a perfect suitor for those wanting a floor that adds excitement to the look of their home, but which will work with any look.
It is also now very popular for use in high end furniture. The Marri tree has protrusions of deep red gum, which give a Marri milled timber wonderful texture and veins running along boards and turned wood.
Lifewood also offers Marri staircases, which are a majestic compliment to Marri flooring in any home. The pale colour of Marri, and with its stunning interest in the dark veins running through the wood, work beautifully en-mass in this combination.
Choose from satin or semi-gloss finishes that are scratch resistant and hard wearing, and which enhance the beautiful grain and colour of Marri timber flooring without cloudiness or an overly-reflective high gloss.
