About Navarre Oil Finished Hardwoods
Inspired by the 19th century Arts & Crafts movement, Navarre marries the craftsmanship of Olde World artisans and 21st century manufacturing technologies to create heirloom quality oak hardwood flooring. The distinctive character of each Navarre plank is achieved using a variety of antiquing and aging techniques and finished with natural oils to preserve the original beauty of the wood.
Navarre's natural oil finish provides a warmth and refinement to the floor that cannot be achieved with modern day acrylic or polyurethane finishes. The rich patina of each Navarre floor is only enhanced with age and use - the more it is walked on, the more beautiful it gets. The natural oils in Navarre floors penetrate the grain and become part of the floor, while acrylic and polyurethane surface coatings detract from the natural beauty of hardwood and degrade with age and use.
Navarre floors feature a distinctive and sophisticated range of distressed, smoked, and antiqued floors finished with either natural or pigmented oils. Each Navarre floor is meticulously crafted to ensure lasting beauty for generations to come. A solid oak hardwood top layer rests on a multi-layered, dimensionally stable core giving each Navarre floor the strength to withstand decades of use.
