What is Moda?
Moda is a curated collection of pre-finished engineered timber flooring designed for fashionable interiors. Moda products are available an array of stylish colours, complete with a unique finish that is unlike anything else in New Zealand. Moda's SilkMatte finish looks and feels raw and untouched like an oil, but has the added durability and repairability of a lacquer. Crafted in Europe from sustainably certified European Oak, Moda is Forté's most eco-friendly range yet. Moda products are available in a variety of formats, from regular planks to parquet patterns such as herringbone, chevron, geometric patterns and acoustic wall panels.
Moda has been developed to make designing cohesive interiors easy. Matching skirting boards, stair nosings and reducer transitions are available, ensuring a seamless look throughout your interior. Each colour is available in a matching stain that can be used to colour other oak surfaces such as furniture, cabinetry and more. If required, imperfections caused by the natural wear and tear of timber flooring can be repaired using the Moda Wax Pen and SilkMatte Refresher, meaning you can keep your floor looking fresh for years to come. Please keep in mind that the Moda finish does require maintenance, so please ensure that this is going to be attainable for the application where you propose to use this product.
