Classic French Oak Wood

Classique French oak is characterized by its yellow brown cognac color. The classic form of French oak has the busiest French oak grain pattern. This means that there are large knots and may also be areas of the heart of the tree to come in the grain pattern of the floorboards. This gives the oak floor an 'old' and exuberant character. Classique French oak is widely used in older homes and farms.
