Technical Details

The flooring chosen for this project is in the Sazerac colour, a part of our Vienna Woods Distilled Collection. Named after the first-ever known cocktail, the Sazerac adds a touch of elegance and history to the home. Lithuanian oak is renowned for its durability and density, a result of the slow growth caused by the region’s average temperature of 8 degrees Celsius. This slow growth process allows the timber to develop a dense, solid structure with unique and intriguing colouring and grain profiles.

The unique grain patterns and subtle variations in the wood create a visual interest that complements the overall aesthetic of the home.

Fun Fact: The Sazerac Cocktail

The Sazerac cocktail, first created in New Orleans in the 19th century, is considered one of the oldest known cocktails. Traditionally made with rye whiskey, absinthe, sugar, and bitters, it embodies sophistication and a rich history, much like our Sazerac-coloured oak flooring.

Photography and Presentation

To capture the essence of this stylish home, we collaborated with photographer Jo Currie, who typically specialises in fashion and portrait photography. This choice allowed us to highlight the flooring’s intricate details and the overall ambiance of the space in a way that truly reflects its beauty.

The home was photographed in the strong morning light, which cast long, dramatic shadows and added depth to the images. These photographs not only showcase the flooring but also convey the sophisticated style and design of the home.
