Limed and Whitewashed Pale Oak
This Limed and Whitewashed Pale Oak is from world renowned Italian manufacturer Quadrolegno. Each plank has been lightly fumed to give it an oak colouration that is ever so slightly darker than normal. The boards have then been treated with a white oil finish.
One of the main things that separates these planks from similar products by different manufacturers is the amount of attention to detail and the lengthy hand finishing processes that Quadrolegno use. Rather than simply applying a white wash to a lightly brushed plank to give a grain that is lighter in colour. Quadrolegno use a centuries old liming technique that ensures the longevity of their products finish.
As shown in the pictures below, each plank is brushed deeply for texture before being spread with a clay slip. This clay fills the natural grooves and is left to dry. Upon drying the excess clay is sanded away leaving a perfectly smooth finish. The planks are then oiled to achieve the chosen colour.
Quadrolegno excel at combining traditional techniques to achieve brilliant quality contemporary flooring, this floor is no exception and would look perfect in any modern home.
