Axe split floors

In order to produce wooden floors, tree trunks are normally first sawn into planks. The uniqueness of axe split flooring is that the wood used for this type of flooring is not sawn, but cleft. This creates a rather rough and uneven surface showing diagonal axe marks. The wood gets a unique pattern that emphasizes the grain pattern of the oak. The quirky nature of the wood, with its knots, grooves and cracks, ensures that no two boards are alike. It must be said that axe split flooring makes every interior very special. Classic or modern, the wood will bring style and interest to the space.


The procedure of cleaving wood produces magnificent floors and titillated our designers to a very special collection that excels in individuality and character: the BARN Collection. BARN floors are cleaved, distressed and finished so that they are reminiscent of the weathered wood of the typical old Canadian barns. A look that is very "now" and appeals to architects and designers, but also to anyone who wants a character floor.

The axe split flooring in this series are all works of art. They are the culmination of a long search for the delicate balance between natural beauty and expertly implemented elegance. The floors of this series are finished entirely by hand.

Even an axe split barn floor, can be re-sanded after years of use. If you so, you will partially lose the structure effect.

In any case, Barn flooring is breathtakingly beautiful and gives you a traditionally cleft oak floor with a contemporary look.
