Hardwood flooring products are not usually considered to be green flooring choices. Environmentally-conscious buyers now have a choice – engineered wood flooring by simpleFLOORS.

Vintage Couture Brazilian Teak Engineered Wood Floor

Engineered wood is constructed using a veneer, or surface layer, of the desired wood, which is bonded to more layers of softer, renewable woods like pine, balsa and poplar. This manufacturing technique is better for the environment because it reduces harvesting of slower-growing hardwood forests.

Engineered wood also lasts longer than many solid woods because it is more resistant to climate and humidity changes. Flooring that lasts longer ensures that less wood will be needed to meet demand.

Inspired by classic modern design, the Vintage Couture engineered wood collection by simpleFLOORS adorns both traditional and modern interiors with "perfect imperfection". Authentic hand-scraped floors are available in much-acclaimed natural species sourced from around the planet, including American Cherry, Black Walnut, True Teak, African Walnut, Brazilian Cherry and Hickory.

simpleFLOORS also uses sustainable cork underlay with most flooring installations, as it offers excellent durability and sound-dampening properties.
