Oak parquet: the wood

Oak is an incredibly long-lasting wood, characterized by excellent resistance to compression, bending and to attacks by microorganisms and parasites. 

What most distinguishes this essence is its iridescent hue which has shades of sapwood white, up to the stronger yellow-brown shades of the heartwood.   

The oak has a coarse texture and a straight and irregular grain.

It is a flooring able to embellish the rooms and make every space intimate and warm, qualities that make it particularly appreciated; moreover, its natural resistance and longevity make it a long-lasting and therefore highly amortizable investment. 

 The wide range of shades and shades then make the oak capable of interpreting any design project in an always effective and never banal way.
