アメリカンチェストナット(栗科)は現在、新材を取る事が出来ません。この貴重な北米樹種を古い納屋からリユースする事で、味わい深い空間を演出する事ができます。最近では、このようなチェストナットを見つけることが非常に困難な為、希少材として、価値が高く大事にされています。テキストでは伝わらない程、美しい材であることは間違いありません。

アメリカンゴシックという名付けは、昔ながらの伝統的、洗練されたニュアンスを表す表現です。この商品の大半は、解体された納屋の梁や柱素材を利用してリソーしてから加工されるものです。

Color & Character

ツヤを持つゴールドと深くて華やかな茶色で、 釘穴、細かい節があるのが特徴です。(虫食いの痕が入る事があります)。チェストナット材は、柔らかく、温かさが伝わる素材です。

Finishes

Most of our solid and eco-friendly engineered flooring is available unfinished or prefinished. Prefinish includes hand applied oil and wax or factory applied aluminum oxide which requires a micro bevel on each piece of flooring. Scratches that occur on a floor finished with oil and wax can often be lightly sanded out. Reapply oil and wax after sanding and let cure.

  • Spills of any kind should be cleaned up immediately.
  • Broom clean for regular maintenance.
  • Consult finish manufacturer for appropriate cleaning instructions.
