Rustic Interior Style Inspired By Ancient Japanese Tradition

What is Shou Sugi Ban?

This beautifully designed floor was inspired by the ancient Japanese art of wood charring known as Shou Sugi Ban.

This charred-like effect is created by applying a black fill to the spring wood and grain of the board during the manufacturing process. The combination of the dark, golden brown colour and the black fill gives this beautiful oak floor an elegant, rustic feel.

Originally, the Japanese would perform this charring technique as a way of preserving the timber, making it much more durable and resistant. Fortunately, this isn’t necessary for our floors as we seal each board individually with our 9-layered “Tuff Coat” polyurethane UV coating.
