The Vintage Collection is made by balancing a thick top layer of solid sawn French Oak over a base of solid wood substrate. By using solid lumber as the core product for balance, the finished product becomes one of the most stable engineered hardwood products on the market. Due to a special aging process of wire brushing, hand scraping and distressing each individual board provides a unique appearance. This process creates a truly authentic distressed style.This state-of-the-art coloring process is fumed/smoked with grey wash and displays the same color throughout the entire top layer. This process of color treatment enhances the wear-ability of the wood by camouflaging any deep scratches which may occur from use.The Vintage Alaska offers a soothing cool tone which enhances and draws focus to surrounding wood work. Ranging from a white washed brown to a grey tint, Vintage Alaska has quickly become a favorite amongst designers for its powerful statement and complimentary style with many modern decors.
