The liming technique used by artisans of Europe in the art houses spotted along the banks of the Thames river have pleased many for centuries. A similar effect is found in the engineered wood planks of the Shaw Floors Hardwood Thames Hickory series.
A part of their Epic Plus collection, the three shades belonging to this series are astounding in their own right.
Abingdon displays a rare tone which is achieved by mixing light gray, taupe and tawny brown. The gray becomes prominent through mineral marks, saw cuts, knots, and grains.
Brey is taupe with an overtone of beige – marks are more prominent here and gray appears only on the marks. Imagine a worn out effect of old moss and mix a little brown with it – the liming effect comes out beautifully in this one. The suave shade of Brey suits workplaces and libraries the most.
The entire Thames Hickory collection from Shaw Floors is just right for the modern interior decoration styles where the reclaimed and worn out look from the past is given preference.
Each plank here is different from another giving you a final unique look. Tones of gray and white washed effect to play with each other on each plank and enter the depths of the wire—brushed grains of the hardwood. The final look is that of a soft, naturally beautiful wood floor.
It is difficult to give one simple engineered wood flooring definition but one can refer to the Shaw Floors products to know their features. Durable, environmentally sustainable and protected from scuffing are some of the most prominent markers.
