The CRAFT Elite Grade Hickory that we use for Modena is put through a multi-step, specialized colour treatment process to create a beautiful French grey tone without altering the underlying wood’s inherent beauty.
Handmade hickory in a neutral grey brown
Skilled artisans carefully select wide hickory planks with a consistent medium colour, and that have occasional lineal sapwood strips to provide subtle contrast.
The grey brown tones of a Modena floor make it a great choice for projects using modern furniture and contemporary concepts.
