From architects and interior designers to plumbers and electricians, homify is a terrific source for professionals in the design / construction industry. And that includes flooring experts, which brings us to today’s designer spotlight: Cadorin Group.
Located in Possagno, near Treviso, Cadorin Group is an Italian company focused on the design, creation, and production of wood plank flooring and parquet surfaces. Thanks to these flooring experts, residential homes, corporate offices, and a wealth of other structures have come to enjoy deluxe wooden flooring surfaces that have been kicked up a stylish notch.
Aside from presenting exceptional visual splendour, Cadorin Group is also known for its commitment to the environment via its eco-sustainable wooden floors.
Let’s take a look at some striking samples with tree bark finishes chosen for their “real feel” look.
It’s evident in numerous design styles (not only rustic) that there is a definite need to flaunt wooden surfaces in and around man-made structures that represent a raw, natural look. It could be anything, such as a wooden countertop in a kitchen, a timber-clad focal wall in a living room, or even a full-blown cottage made entirely out of wood.
Yet, it happens way too often that these wood finishes don’t represent the “real” feel of the natural wood found in nature. And once varnishes or oils are applied to the wood, the different grains and shades are altered quite considerably. The result is an artificial appearance – precisely the opposite of what was desired.
Try and compare a piece of raw, natural wood found in nature (like a tree branch) to an altered surface with its “man-made” hues found in a modern home. There is certainly a difference, and not only in the colour.
It only takes a walk outside to reveal what Mother Nature intends for wood to look (and feel) like. And that is what Cadorin Group has achieved successfully. Thanks to its commitment to both the environment and interior style, the company fully understands what wood’s original colours are supposed to look like.
And that can be appreciated in Cadorin Group’s new ‘Tree Bark’ finishes for the Epoch Planks and Pregio Planks Collections.
It is the professional opinion of Cadorin Group that noble timber from all across the world is perfectly suited for its Tree Bark finishes, not only Oak parquet (which is usually used).
The Epoch Planks that are suitable for Tree Bark finishes are:
• Old Noghera
• “Spaccato” Pear
• 19th Century Cherry, and
• Sawn Hard Maple.
For the Pregio range, clients can choose from:
• European Walnut
• European Cherry
• European Pear
• American Walnut, and
• Hard Maple.
But what is the reason for singling out the specific shades in the Tree Bark range? Simple: these tints are perfect representations of the sort of colours and styles usually found in untreated wood in its natural state. From a wealth of various greys and reddish browns to streaks of chestnut brown, Cadorin Group has ensured the final effects are as far from an artificial look as possible.
