Against the Grain: Bolefloor

April 26th, 2011

My husband sent me a link to this beautiful new flooring called Bolefloor. Bole, which means the trunk of the tree, is a new tongue-and-groove system with curved boards that come from the tree’s natural growth.

I wish we had the means to re-floor our entire house with these! There is something so absolutely stunning in their irregular curves and details. Definitely putting this idea in the inspiration folder for our future dream home!

    Stunning! My husband and I want to put rustic hardwood floors throughout our whole house. This is exactly what we have in mind. So beautiful.

    This is so GORGEOUS. I’ve never seen anything like it. I’m normally drawn to the clean lines of traditional wood floors, but I think there is something to be said of the organic feel this evokes. Very pretty.

    I am preparing to re-floor a retro house that I bought, inspired by the innovations of Frank Lloyd Wright. I love the home but the floors have to go. After seeing the photographs on line of the Bolefloors, I am obsessing over having them installed in the main areas. Does anyone know how to find the product and an installer in Southern California? I don’t mind waiting a while, but I would love to think that there are some U.S. flooring companies wanting to take this on. I would even go to Amsterdam if necessary, to provide diagrams, measurements and have the material shipped, but I don’t know who could install them without factory training. Any ideas?
