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.
Handmade Hickory floors in light, neutral hues
For all its good looks, Ávila –like every CRAFT floor is made from North American wood that is Chain of Custody certified (PEFC/29-31-374) to be legal, responsible and traceable back to a sustainably managed forest.
All CRAFT floors have a Declare label and are rated Red List Free; are ultra-low emitting and are certified to GREENGUARD Gold; and are covered by a Product Specific, Type III EPD.
CRAFT’s certifications are verified and summarized in a Validated Eco-Declaration. Review our higher standards.
Ávila starts off with our CRAFT Natural 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.
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
