DID YOU KNOW? – When to Order?

Did you know that typically engineered wood floors, due to their custom-manufacturing nature need to be ordered and installed before your kitchen?

Engineered wood flooring is structurally more stable than solid wood. While this translates into reduced shrinking and expanding (making it easier to install and maintain), you still do need to install your floors before the kitchen.
This is to ensure the wood has room to breathe.

Since our wood is custom-manufactured to your specifications, it needs to be installed first to account for the demands placed on it and to let it settle comfortably into the floor. With over 17 years of experience with multi-unit and high-end custom residential projects, Khayeri Flooring knows that design starts from the ground up.

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.

Views From Versailles: The Palace Collection

At one point in history, a certain Louis XIII turned a humble two-story hunting lodge a few kilometres southwest of Paris into a chateau. Years later, his successor, Louis XIV decided more was needed. So bit by bit, year after year, rooms and wings and terraces were added, art and trophies were hung, and the gardens were enlarged. It became more than a place for quiet reverie. It turned into a place of ceremony, a place to entertain; it turned into a palais at Versailles.

As the nobility’s taste grew richer, the Palace of Versailles grew too. When the French Revolution came and the nobility went, the palace still stood. Now, with a country’s history etched into stone and marble, it stands as a museum. Now, representing the rise and fall of an era, perhaps, spectres of bygone residents still roam the halls at Versailles.

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.

Hand-selected to favour wood with the fewest small knots, the result is a more consistent, cleaner look, with less variation between planks.

The Palace of Versailles was a testament to the grandeur of 17th Century French architecture and art. It was a stage, with the country and wider world the audience, mesmerized by the actors’ play unfolding before them: the monarchy. The Palace Collection is Khayeri Flooring’s most luxurious and customizable line of premium flooring. Like Versailles, it is your stage. The Collection pulls your home together and gives you the base from which you can build your own story, whichever one that may be. Like the nobles at Versailles, you turn what you imagine into a reality. Where the kings had the Hall of Mirrors, the Royal Opera and the Hameau, you have open, modern spaces, warm interiors and a glowing light that fills the room.

When you walk, the echo of a time long ago follows.

Underneath It All Is A Pattern

Patterns are everywhere: a patchwork quilt, a checked shirt, the way farmers plant their crops, the way cities are moulded into grids, history and mathematics, the predictability of behaviour and the rhythm of breathing. If you look close enough, you can even find them in a series of seemingly unconnected events.

From the natural and artificial, to the metaphysical, patterns are how we make sense of the world and often, patterns are how the world presents itself to us

At Khayeri, flooring patterns are how we present the character of a country, its people and its history. There’s a touch of sophistication, an old-world, European elegance that is brought to you – and at the same time, you get taken there.

Nine different patterns bring nine different feelings; nine different memories.

Chevron

Etched into the wood, lines extend out from the middle at angles, almost as if taking flight. The shade varies as does the texture; capturing methodical movement. Like a bird in the sky.

herringbone

Similar to Chevron only wilder and more unkempt, the pattern of wood extends from the middle but one on top of another, jostling for position; wanting to be seen. It’s darker, more commanding.

Versailles

Crisscrossing, sometimes above, sometimes below, Versailles is an ode to the palace from which it takes its inspiration. It has an authority to it that the dark tones seem to agree with.

Castel

Castel captures the artistry that runs through France: pattern lies on top of pattern, the wood’s natural coloring resembling the drip of an artist’s paintbrush. Beautifully careless.

variance

Variance stands strong, upright, regal. The blemishes and textures of the wood visible. The pattern: two bold, horizontal lines meeting in the middle, in union. Broodingly dark.

empire

Understated elegance and quiet confidence. An empire doesn’t shout out its authority or the extent of its reach; it doesn’t need to. When you step in it, you know.

chateau

When you think of a chateau you picture a little house, quietly tucked away behind trees, on a hill somewhere in the country. Chateau’s pattern camouflages into the wood in much the same way. You’ll see it and it’ll welcome you in.

Chantilly

Even in chaos there is calm, in madness there is method. Chantilly is a patchwork of wood in different direction, different patterns, blemishes and tones. And it works.

Kruis

Translating to “cross” Krius’ pattern takes from its name. With the color so light, calming and quaint, the more you look at it, the more it starts to speak.

Sustainability: We Only Live So Long

Oak trees grow one millimeter a year. Each tree takes an average of 180 years to reach its final growth stage. It takes generations to reach adulthood. This long-drawn coming-of-age is why the oak tree lends itself to such veneration and respect. It has many names: The Mighty Oak, The Wise Oak, the King of the Forest.

It has, and will, see more than any of us can lay claim to.

The Oak has its place in legend as well. Ancient Celts used to honour the Oak for its endurance and noble presence. The Greeks believed that the same way Zeus’ voice was heard in thunder; it was heard in the rustling of oak leaves.

Should something so grand, so steeped in mystery and veneration, be given mere fleeting consideration?

At Khayeri, we truly value wood as one of nature’s best and most extraordinary materials, and our outstanding European-engineered white oak flooring collections directly reflect those beliefs. Khayeri uses rare and beautiful hardwood solely for the surface layer. In order to be environmentally-friendly, the support layer is made using a quicker growth wood – like Baltic Birch or Nordic Pine – or high-density fibreboard for structural stability. We capture nature’s beauty while minimizing our ecological footprint and letting the trees continue on in deep slumber.

But sustainability covers more than footprint; protecting the air we breathe is equally as important.

Khayeri offers many sophisticated wood finishes including natural oils, pigmented oils and aluminum oxide finishes amongst others. These finishes are completely free of Volatile Organic Compounds. A VOC-free finish means that the hardwood floor does not produce any solvents and other compounds that evaporate into the air and contribute to the formation of an unclean and unhealthy environment. Throughout our process, from sourcing the wood through till the finishes, Khayeri is committed to protecting natural resources and the environment.

In addition to flooring, a sustainable home needs to have a reduced energy consumption. It’s important to install quality windows that provide excellent insulation. Window coverings, blinds drapes and carpets are all excellent thermal insulators.

It’s about cherishing the ground we all share.
Nature is the true artist and at Khayeri, the genius is in the design.

Inspiration deserves our deepest, highest respect.

The Khayeri Journey – To Distant Shores And Back

The Khayeri Journey is meticulous and thoughtful one. We are the vessel through which, old-world, European forests are placed at your feet. Every detail and consideration is carefully measured to align with Khayeri’s overarching philosophy: worship the ground you walk on. We do the forests from which we source our wood justice by creating floors that shine with natural beauty; floors that resurrect memories of places you’ve never even been to.

The Khayeri Journey unfolds over five stages: Selection, Processing, Manufacture, Design and Shipping.

Selection and processing is thorough. Only the finest wood with the richest texture is chosen. Hand-selected to favour wood with the fewest small knots, the process translates into an end-product that looks cleaner and more consistent, with less variation between planks.

Khayeri Flooring is a long-term member of the NWFA (National Wood Flooring Association), the world’s largest professional association in the wood flooring industry. Our crews are trained in accordance with the association’s standards and our services are performed according to the strict guidelines and regulations set forward by the NWFA. The job is done right, and it is done keeping in mind the highest standards.

Our large warehouse facility ensures adequate stock for your product. This translates into multiple installation crews and the ability to add additional labour if needed to speed up the process. A high quality, full product line-up of engineered, laminate, and vinyl flooring is installed by our reliable and detail-oriented crews that ensure the job is completed to satisfaction the first time. Under the supervision of a dedicated Project Manager with a decade of experience in the industry, our installation crews work together to install flooring and transform interiors.

Our French White Oak and European Ash are strictly harvested from Certified Forests. The meticulous forest stewardship of French Oak forests has meant that their size has more than doubled over the past 100 years, making genuine French White Oak the most sustainable hardwoods in the world. It is from these near-everlasting sources that Khayeri finds, and provides, inspiration. Even in the initial stages, Khayeri’s process abides to strict standards. The coda always in sight.

The highest manufacturing quality-control standards are in place to ensure peak performance during North America’s harsh, dry winter months and contrasting humid summers. Only the best European-sourced and made engineered support is selected from Baltic Marine Birch, Nordic Pine and Spruce. Combined with detailed moister content conditioning, wood that was once foreign to our climate has gradually, like an old friend, come to find itself more and more at home.

Khayeri’s design process takes into account both aesthetic and environmental impact. As a paean to the forests, care goes into ensuring the wood takes centre stage: extra-long, extra-wide planks, with structurally-stable cores and natural finishes. Using the latest European ECO formulations, our specialty natural vegetate-based oil finishes ensure no VOC’s and Formaldehyde seep into the wood to maintain its natural complexion and texture, and to give the space it’s installed in a healthy heart.

With a warehousing facility of over 1 million sq. ft. and gradually-developed factory-direct relationships, Khayeri ensures adequate stock and the perfect storage conditions. With over 17 years of experience with multi-unit and custom-residential projects, no project is too big and no order goes unfulfilled.

t’s a journey to faraway places and quiet forests. And in the end, after all the countries, cultures, and all the people, it comes back as a memento. So you remember.
