Great artisans don’t try to impress their own influence on nature… they embrace it.
They allow nature to speak through their work. And DUCHATEAU is at the intersection where artisans and great design meet.
Introducing our Atelier Collection. This isn’t an off-the-shelf product. It is a living thing, hand-finished in the European tradition, and perfected with modern technology. A look of ancient wood, with a natural matte and luster that comes from within. Wood that breathes and ages like wine, evolving over time. A blend of the old world with contemporary excellence.
Every floor is made to order, with a one-of-a-kind terroir unique to the crop of trees it was harvested from, and the time and conditions under which it was finished.
As nature and technology are forever changing, so too is the artisan method, giving DUCHATEAU a signature aesthetic, and point of view that continues to be refined.
Our new color offerings are about revisiting Atelier favorites, with a new, fuller breath of expression. Artisanal hand-finishing with a refined methodology shows improved color stability and richness as it interacts with light, both day and night.
Traditionally manufactured European oak; hand-finished by North American artisans.
Atelier by DUCHATEAU.
Inspired by a natural occurrence of an Iceblink, the reflection of light on an icefield appearing on the horizon, reflected on low clouds. The white is more transparent than Coast Fog, allowing more grain to shine through.
The appearance of an iceblink was used by the Inuit in navigating and was instrumental in finding the artic northwest passage.
