Sweet Swede floors
Located in Nybro, Sweden, on the same site where it was founded by Johan Kahr in 1857, Kahrs Floorings is Europe's largest wood flooring manufacturer, has sales forces in 11 countries and is active in more than 40 markets worldwide.
Producing both parquet and wood plank flooring, Kahrs products are mainly of the floating variety - the boards attach to each other, not the underfloor - and are manufactured in three-ply boards with one, two and three strip versions available.
No matter what type of wood flooring you're looking for, Kahrs likely carries it. With a product line featuring 18 species, Kahrs has the standards, such as oak, ash, beech and Brazilian cherry, and a wide variety of unique woods, like Maobi, Wenge and Doussie.

Floor color selection
Courtesy of the Kahrs Flooring website, here are some helpful hints on choosing the perfect shade for your floor:
- Dark floors "swallow" light, yet create a warm and cozy feeling, especially in large rooms.
- Light floors reflect light and create a sense of spaciousness, particularly in smaller rooms.
