“…The timeless appeal of hardwood floors is an ever-present characteristic whether you choose a French Château parquet-inspired floor, an elegant wood floor with a classic pattern inspired by stylish 19th Century architecture, or a more contemporary wooden floor in a natural grey or chalky shade.” -An excerpt from AUTHENTICITY by Francois & Co.
Francois & Co. offers a variety of solid and engineered wood surfaces that are held to the same standards of fine quality and aesthetic as all of our collections. Our French Oak solid hardwood floors are pre-finished by hand in France and include a variety of classic and contemporary patterns, textures and colors. Our engineered hardwood flooring line combines quality and a variety of styles to accommodate a range of design palettes.
Solid French Oak Flooring
Three of our favorite wood floors right now are Parquet de Versailles and Correze from our French Oak collection, as well as one from our engineered hardwood floor portfolio, Montmartre.
Parquet de Versailles, Rustica Finish with Square Pegs, Oil Color: Saint Amour
In the October 2011 issue of Veranda, the classic Parquet de Versailles took center stage in our feature. Reminiscent of flooring in the grandest French estates, such as the Chateau de Fountainebleau, these floors are 7/8” thick solid French Oak and, like the rest of the collection, aged according to the finest traditional methods. Parquet de Versailles is timeless and is available in three equally timeless oil finishes.
Correze Solid French Oak
The Correze solid French Oak floor is gracefully aged with scuff marks, worm holes and uneven, rustic edges. These charming characteristics are recognizable in antique flooring, but rarely duplicated with success. We offer Correze in a variety of size & patterns as well. Thus, at your discretion, the Correze hardwoods may be the subtle backdrop for the rest of your design or a patterned visual highlight in your room.
Montmarte, European Engineered Hardwood Oak
Our superior collection of engineered hardwood floors includes Montmarte, a European White Oak 3/4” thick mixed rustic grade surface. The floor achieves considerable depth and richness with a hand-scraped and deep-brushed finish application. The soft variation in color, from mid-beige to brown with a dusting of grey, is rarely found in an engineered floor. With a 1/4” wear layer and an oil finish, Montmartre matches its beauty with considerable durability and ease of maintenance.
