Chalet and Chaletino - oak flooring of exceptional length and width

By Vilde Høsfloth  – 

Chalet and Chaletino from BOEN is parquet flooring made with exceptionally wide and long planks of the finest timber.
Current trends in architecture and interior design are moving towards fewer elements that are larger in size.
People are therefore conscious of choosing parquet in large format like Chalet and Chaletino.
With its uniquely large dimensions, carefully selected oak timber and individual adaptation to every room,
BOEN is giving you the opportunity to choose the most exclusive designer floor.

Every Chalet flooring is unique

Chalet is exclusive oak plank with various widths and lengths up to four meters.
This creates a very impressive yet peaceful and comprehensive spaciousness.

A Chalet floor is designed and adapted to each room by BOENs own floor designers. This creates optimal solutions and a unique architecture.
When the designers' proposal is approved by the customer, the customized order is set in production. This makes every Chalet-floor unique.

Chaletino with fixed widths and lengths

The only thing separating Chaletino from Chalet, is that these boards have a fixed length of 2.75 meters and a fixed width of 30 centimeters.
This gives a Chaletino floor a more uniform appearance compared to the random width Chalet floor.

To emphasize the generous length and width of these floors, planks have a micro-bevel machined on all four sides.
Trends also indicate that we are more detailed about being natural and that we prefer natural products with unique differences.

-    The timber used in the planks is taken from oak trees which are almost 200 years old to give these floors the necessary singularity
and quality that we are looking for, says sales and marketing director of BOEN Norway, Jan Nielsen.

Tradition back to the 1600s

With roots dating back to BOENs sawmill in Kristiansand, Norway in the 1600s, are BOEN helping to continue the good old craft tradition. BOEN has therefore own timber specialists who select the right quality of raw materials used for production of Chalet and Chaletino. The oak originates from the Baltic forests ensures a consistently high quality.

Find a retailer

All surfaces are processed with BOENs natural oil Live Natural, to emphasize the floor's natural expression and that you can use the floors right away. Oiling of flooring is also helping to accentuate the structure of the wood and makes the floor feels warm and comfortable to walk on.
