Wood flooring trends in 2017 inspired by nature

Interiors in 2017 are all about going back to basics, connecting ourselves with nature once again. In a world that's so fast-paced, we as humans have an innate need to hold on to the natural, the organic, said an industry expert. 

This is now being translated into interior design trends, with homes focusing on having a harmonious, natural and calm feeling, stated Nordic Homeworx, the exclusive distributor of Kährs, one of the oldest wood manufacturers in the world, based in Sweden.

It was founded in 2006 by a Swedish national Pauline Madani to bring premium Swedish wood flooring into Dubai. Nordic Homeworx is not only the exclusive distributor for the Kährs but also the agent for the brand in the Middle East. 

"Creating a home with a soul. Having a natural wood floor at home is a big part of creating that feeling- because wood is a material that affects all senses," remarked Emanuel Lidberg, the creative design manager for Kährs in Sweden.

According to Lidberg, a current trend in Scandinavia is big windows, covering a whole wall from floor to ceiling in an effort to erase the lines between indoors and outdoors. 

"This means that the light falls in a way that can cause reflections on the floor, confusing our sense of colour. That is why we're seeing matte surfaces becoming a big trend in the near future," he stated.

Wood floors provide a natural warmth and beauty to a home that very few other flooring materials can. Wood floors also add style to a home, are easy to care for and clean, comfortable to walk on and are non-allergenic and child-friendly, said the expert.

"Though investing in a high-quality natural wood flooring in Dubai will most likely have a high initial price, it will surely cost you less over time. This is due to the fact that much like most high-end brands - more research has been done into the product, skillful manufacturing implemented and high-quality raw materials used," observed Lidberg. 

"There is usually a valid reason for a wood floor's price. It generally takes a little bit of investigation into the brand to understand better. We also recommend you to look into other clients' experiences through testimonials or word-of-mouth as an additional background check into the supplier," observed Lidberg.

The 160-year history of Kährs is the story of a strong passion for nature and the environment; for wood as a material and for interior design, combined with innovative thinking and a commitment to the highest quality standards, he added.-TradeArabia News Service
