Our highly prized and unusual European Brown Oak Flooring has a very distinctive tiger stripe patterning across the boards. This patterning is a natural phenomenon which occurs during the lifecycle of the tree and is caused by the action of the beefsteak fungus which attaches itself to the base of the tree as it grows. The growth of the fungus is not detrimental to the tree at all, but causes an intruiging, random darkening of the timber. Boards from the base of the tree will be full dark chocolate brown, with patterning becoming more random and stripy midway up. Boards from higher up the tree will be a light tan/biscuit colour with less patterning. We recommend loose laying boards before fixing to achieve an even spread of the variegated tones and patterns.
Our samples are an excellent way to demonstrate the quality of machining and finish that you can expect from us, however please be aware that wood is a natural product and as such is subject to subtle differences in tone, grain pattern and knot sizes.
