Authentic Oak Flooring

Authentic Oak Flooring

Authentic is our name for our truly luxurious range of aged and distressed oak flooring products.

A luxurious flooring choice which evokes a feeling of times past, this aged and distressed look can be enhanced using a range of techniques: hand scraped edges, rolling and tumbling. They can be chosen either individually or as a combination for you to create your bespoke look and feel. The knots are hand filled with a natural filler which dries to produce sunken knots and, as our Authentic oak is pre-finished, all boards are machine coated twice with an Osmo hardwax oil of your choice from our colour guide which can be found here.

What kind of finishes are available?


The Authentic range is completely customised to your requirements, with a wide range of finishing options available:


In order to add style and authenticity, the edges of the boards are scraped by hand to provide that special final touch. This is reminiscent of a technique used years ago, prior to machine-based sanding and the stunning effect holds true today.


This effect is produced by machining the top of the boards which results in surface indentations and a lightly distressed look.


This effect is similar to Rolled but more pronounced as the boards are more heavily distressed, particularly on the edges. The boards are tossed around in a drum along with chains, nuts and bolts to randomly distress the surfaces; no two boards are the same.

Which grade is available? 

Our Authentic range comes in a character/prime grade. Knots are hand filled and upon drying become sunken, which provides an authentic, period feature.
