A Trip Down Memory Lane: The Nordic Collection

Deep on the Scandinavian forest floor, you’ll find a few winding trails that lead you into the thick canopy of trees that fall above you. You walk with the sound of twigs and foliage breaking under your step, the trees whispering the histories of Norse gods: Odin and Rind, Fjorgyn and Saga sit, listening to their legacies. You walk further, the landscape changes: where there were rocks, now rivers, the sky turns leaf green. The sun is left to peep through gaps, its light is fleeting. The sound of birdsong grows faint. Standing there in the Norwegian skog, the green sky above and the familiar floor that led you in below, you’re completely immersed.

It is from this rich, enchanting history that Khayeri Flooring created the Palace Collection. A display of extravagant opulence, the Palace Collection features old world European craftsmanship, each plank an artisanal masterpiece. Custom-made in the Netherlands, this collection features the ultimate structural support with 100% Marine Birch backing topped with premium, sustainable old-growth French White Oak.

In the true spirit of the Kings of Versailles, who requested materials from across the country for their workers, who then had to overcome the structural and technological challenges of their time, Khayeri Flooring’s imported, luxury hardwood flooring and artisanal hand-finish treatments, evoke the same sense of elaborate beauty, regal perfection and mortal ingenuity. The Palace Collection boasts extra-wide and extra-long planks with warm and neutral tones that make any space feel like home. Hand-selected to favour wood with the fewest small knots, the result is a more consistent, cleaner look, with less variation between planks.

The Nordic Collection’s inspiration comes from these sustainable Scandinavian and Baltic forests from which our luxury hardwood floors are sourced. As an homage to the region and its hazy, abundant forests, we highlight the natural beauty of the wood through our sanded smooth and lightly-brushed finishes. The result speaks for itself: aesthetically vivid and beautifully natural, the collection captures the spirit of Scandinavia.

There’s also a distinct affinity for minimalism and functionality that characterizes the region. That clean refrain is brought out in light and neutral tones, with a unique colour selection, hand-selected to favour wood without knots. With little variation between planks, the Nordic Collection pulls a space together, providing the perfect backdrop against which to build a modern interior. The two-tone designs, allow for creative flexibility, imbue an ethereal, airy quality to any living space, and enhance the grain of the natural hardwood. Made with the highest structurally stable core support, the Nordic Collection is maintenance free – just like a Scandinavian forest.

Khayeri Flooring captures a story and an emotion. We bring the nostalgia of a distant memory to every interior with our luxury hardwood floors, through which, art imitates the nature it comes from. The purpose of the Nordic Collection’s wide plank flooring was to have Scandinavian serenity reign supreme. French White Oak or European White Ash, together with 8” wide and 84 ¼” long planks, accentuate the wood and create an effortless sense of balance that is both timeless and beautiful. Wide plank flooring enhances the size of the space, provides a feeling of harmony, and with fewer joints across your floor, gives an interior a life of its own.

In every interior, design starts from the ground up. The visual tone is set by the flooring with everything else serving to compliment and emphasize that foundation. At Khayeri, we know the importance a floor can have in inspiring a space, allowing it to take shape and taking you on a journey, as if you were walking down a winding trail. The Nordic Collection does that by bringing Scandinavia, and memories of it, to you.
