One of our most popular floors, Ávila flooring features a cleaner look with minimal colour variation. Ávila has light, neutral hues that compliment both modern and traditional designs, while creating a sense of light and openness in design spaces.
Hickory is hand-worked using VintageCRAFT techniques to create stunning time-worn textures. This combined with the incredible hardness of Hickory, means that an investment in an Ávila floor will withstand the rigors of an active household while still looking beautiful for years to come.
Ávila starts off with our select character grade of Hickory, which is graded to have a cleaner look and less colour variation. After texturing it is then put through a multi-step colour treatment process which involves bleaching and staining in order to achieve its unique, light colour.
