Natural Genius: Biscuit by Patricia Urquiola

We'd like to place a well deserved spotlight on these brilliant pattered floors from Listone Giordano. Inspired by fabrics, Biscuit is a collection that focuses on rediscovering the decorative power of wood flooring.

Exploring the concepts of softness and femininity, designer Patricia Urquiola redefines the classic rules of what a floor should look like and the traditional laying patterns that have been in place for over a century.

PROTOTYPE FLOATING TREADS

When it comes to wood applications, there's nothing as beautiful as a well crafted set of stairs! Here are some prototype examples of floating treads. These would look so nice against glass siding or just on their own! This particular example was made using a pre-finished floor and highlights an advanced mitre process with polyurethane seaming that would be suitable for residential applications. For high traffic spaces an integrated solid nosing component on the edges would be a good idea. Featured here is Deep Down Taupe and Gris Charmant by Woodlife!

LOCAL INSPIRATION: ETERNAL GREY

Since moving to the Armoury District this past fall we have enjoyed visiting all the amazing local furniture and decor shops found in our neighbourhood. This area is truly a design mecca offering everything from luxury cars to the latest in homewares and furnishings. It's always fun to consider what floors would pair well with what we're seeing so we decided to create a local inspiration feature here on our Log for your viewing pleasure. Below are some pieces we think would look absolutely fabulous with Eternal Grey by Woodlife:

New Armoury Showroom Now Open!!

After five fabulous years in Mount Pleasant we moved our showroom to our new home in the Armoury District of Vancouver! We love our new neighbourhood and are so excited to be a part of this growing architecture and design community. It's such a treat taking Alfie for a walk every day around the seawall and Granville Island!

The inspiration for our new showroom came from the boutique parquet shops of Europe - simple, sophisticated, and functional! Bursting with product options and samples ready to go!

Here are some behind the scene snapshots from our showroom renos! If you're in the neighbourhood come in and say hi!

2018 FLOORING TRENDS

Her are some of the noteworthy trends we're excited about for the new year!

1) ENVIRONMENTALLY CONSCIOUS CHOICES Homeowners are more informed than ever about the materials and chemicals that go into their homes. We’re expecting the demand for environmentally sound products to continue into 2018! Look for products that have a European #E1 and North American #CARB2 emissions rating and compliance.

The milling has to be exceptional for this to work well. Featured here is Slide from #ListoneGiordano’s Natural Genius collection. Italian designer Daniele Lago created this product to empower you with the ultimate control over the design of your floor- to help you create a truly distinctive statement for your space.

Aymong Residence Project

We've been busy these past few months working on some great projects and are excited to share about some of our experiences. This Kerrisdale residence was especially memorable because of how lovely the homeowner was to work with. We hope you enjoy your beautiful new home Eve! When @gaileguevara first shared with us her vision of transforming this 1930s home and bringing it into the 21st century, we knew right away this was going to be something special. When working with #gaileguevara quality is of the utmost importance. @woodlifefloors was the only option. They crafted for us a beautiful floor made out of Select Grade European White Oak. #ExtremeWhite Builder: @caisleydevelopments Suppliers: @somafurniture @miele_com @haydesign @midlandbcappl @boccidesign @livingspacevancouver
