Vermeer Plank

Also available in: Herringbone Chevron

Sink into the time-worn elegance of Vermeer, a wide plank timber in a luxurious brown colour that invites you to slip off your shoes and experience its tactile qualities for yourself. Vermeer's rustic-grade Oak wear layer has been intensely smoked, resulting in extreme darkening of the wood colour throughout together with increased colour variation. The surface is heavily brushed to reveal the natural wood grain texture, and knots and tonal differences are celebrated - not erased. Together with an undulating surface and original saw-markings, you have a look that is reminiscent of hand-cut timber from days gone by. Vermeer's luxurious tones are set to enrich your interior for years to come.
