Flagship Floors

Karen Simonsen has opened her first flagship store in Store Regnegade in central Copenhagen, complete with – dare we say it – her trademark Junckers floor: our textured Mountain Silver Black Oak.

We have a long-standing collaboration with Karen, providing floors for her catwalk shows and exhibition spaces. The sinewy silver threads which enhance the natural grains of the timber on an almost black background add drama and sophistication – a perfect backdrop to Karen’s latest collection.

Neon Pink Wooden Floors?

When you think of wooden floors, warm, natural tones come to mind. Honey hued oak or trendy colours like deep, dark brown and light-reflecting paler woods but neon pink? Not likely…

So why pink? To show that we can create truly unique floors, beyond all expectations. Believe it or not – the ever increasing trend for bespoke and customised products also applies to solid hardwood floors. We’ve launched our Signature Colour Concept to offer specifiers a chance to create tailor made floors for their clients. Anything is possible – a wooden floor no longer needs to be traditional, it can take on any colour, including pearlised and metallic finishes.

Our new concept has proved hugely popular, both to create striking, one of kind statement floors for bars, restaurants, galleries or large public spaces, or to create a floor that ties in with company colours or branding.

Our bright, neon pink planks, used on both floors and walls, for Danish designer Karen Simonsen’s stand at Copenhagen Fashion Week were certainly very hard to ignore. Developed in close collaboration with the designer herself, the floor echoed the pink colour used in her collection and captured the eye of every single visitor!

Junckers Catwalk Debut

We often say that every room needs a good looking floor and there aren’t many places where a Junckers solid hardwood floor won’t look gorgeous. Last month, we tried something new, by building the catwalk floor for Danish designer Karen Simonsen. Her fashion show at Copenhagen Fashion Week was a stunning affair, helped a long a little bit (we’d like to think) by our Mountain Silver planks.

Part of our own new Design Collection, which takes a more experimental approach to flooring with new colourways and surface treatments, Mountain Silver formed a striking back drop to Karen’s new collection. Made from our dark Black Oak which is brushed then stained with a silver pigment and finally sealed with our UltraMatt lacquer, this is a truly sophisticated floor. On the catwalk, the lighting highlighted the silver threads, accentuating the structure of the timber to spectacular effect.
