The world of Swedish wooden flooring presented by Kährs

With a history dating back to 1857, Kährs of Sweden is the oldest and most innovative wood floor manufacturer in the world still in operation.

For Kährs, beauty is more than skin deep. The design of the floor, quality and durability are all key elements of what the brands stands for with a commitment to contributing to a sustainable society. Kährs blends design with innovation that has radically changed the production of wood floors globally while contributing to the environment.

For more than 50 years, Kährs has been an environmental pioneer in the wood flooring business. Kährs has, in fact, invented and implemented a number of solutions aimed at reducing the environmental impact of both producing wood floors and the end product.

Many of these inventions have subsequently been adopted globally. This resulted in Kährs being the first wood flooring producer to gain an environmental certification more than 20 years ago.

Kährs invented the engineered wood floor and the first to introduce a mechanical glueless joint system – the ingenous Woodloc® system. All Kährs wood floors come fully pre-finished from Kährs factory in Sweden, and are installed in a completely glueless, floating manner on top of any existing tile or marble (or any other solid, leveled surface), making the entire installation process is extremely quick and clean.

Nordic Homeworx is the exclusive distributor of Kährs in the United Arab Emirates, as well as the agent for the brand in the Middle East.

“We’re fortunate to be able to cater to every interior design scheme. Kährs offers so many different designs and colours with its wide variety of over 180 different sustainable wood floors, that there is a floor for every style and preference,” explains Pauline Madani, founder Nordic Homeworx.

Over the past decade, the company has developed a successful concept based on a strong passion for Kährs as a brand with its Nordic heritage. Focus has been on maintaining a boutique-style concept, providing inspiration for a lifestyle that Pauline wants to share with designers and clients alike.

The UAE market is extremely service-oriented and Nordic Homeworx’ focus has been to provide the best service consistently, from initial client meeting, to project finalisation and after-care. The company has close relationships with homeowners, architects, interior designers and contractors, providing them with samples to inspire them for their projects.

“Our clients love to work with Kährs because it has such a wide range of products, including colours, wood species and finishes suitable for any type of project. It’s really inspiring to see how such a broad range of clients and designers visualise their concepts using our wood floors in so many different interior designs,” Pauline says.
