Danish design house Republic of Fritz Hansen has chosen Junckers Oak Boulevard for its HQ showroom. The company’s classic designs are now displayed against a backdrop of Junckers’ widest dimension floorboard, measuring 185mm wide made in solid oak.
The many world famous classic pieces and contemporary designs made in collaboration with leading international designers sit perfectly on Junckers’ signature long-length planks, which add a further architectural dimension to the space. Finished with our newly reformulated UltraMatt Lacquer, the floor has a completely natural, matt appearance which looks just like an oiled finish. Developed in response to the growing trend for natural, ‘unfinished’ looking floors, Junckers UltraMatt Lacquer protects the solid wood floor, making it durable, hardwearing and easy to care for. Even though it looks just like an oiled finish with no surface sheen, the new lacquer gives the floor superior protection against spills and scuffs. The natural, matt appearance combined with a highly durable, easy to clean surface has made UltraMatt Lacquer Junckers’ best selling finishing product – over 80% of all pre-finished floors are sealed with it.
All Junckers pre-finished floorboards are now available with UltraMatt Lacquer, ready for immediate use once installed. The new formula enhances the natural beauty of the various timbers Junckers offers, including oak, ash, black oak and beech. Junckers specialises in long-length planks – the true mark of a high quality floor, and its floors are suitable for use over under floor heating. UltraMatt Lacquer can also be bought as a finishing treatment for all types of timber.
Hugh Broughton Architects have specified our solid hardwood flooring for the new Harley Gallery on the Welbeck Estate in Nottinghamshire. The new 890m2 gallery, set within the grounds of the existing Harley Gallery, will show changing displays of the privately owned Portland Collection.
The design reflects the historic architecture of the Estate in choice of materials, colour and scale, as well as introducing a sense of light and space. Our Single Stave Blocks parquet flooring was installed to add natural warmth and beauty, to compliment the dramatic space. Durable and easy to maintain, all Junckers’ FSC and PEFC certified solid wood floors are the ideal choice for public buildings.
We’re constantly striving to find new, exciting ways to finish our hardwood floors and when a client asked for an ‘out of the ordinary’ floor, we rose to the challenge and came up with a pearlised, slightly reflective surface. The success of the project led us to develop our Pearl range – a grey pearl wash in three different intensities; Natural, Silver and Gold, pre-finished on our best-selling solid Oak boards.

Junckers have added three new pale floors to their Design Collection. Part of their Scandinavian Nature range of solid Oak wide planks, these new floors have a brushed, textured finish combined with that coveted bleached wood look.
The three shades available vary tonally in both warmth and brightness ranging from the silvery white Glacial White to Frosted White which has a bit more colour and Antique White which is warmer, more golden.
Glacial White, Frosted White and Antique White are available on 20.5mm thick solid Oak planks in a choice of three widths: 129mm, 160mm and 185mm.
