At DUCHATEAU we have perfected a signature weathered look in our Atelier line. Alpenglow is a clear natural color that reflects the surrounding colors beautifully, like the way sunlight is cast on a mountain at sunrise and sunset. The color doesn’t cast olive or yellow but retains a nuanced balance of tones as though the floor had aged in place.
One of the characteristics of an extraordinary floor is the variation from plank to plank, which makes your space come alive. The individual tannins in each board along with the time of year it is produced all add to this natural beauty. You should expect this variation in each Atelier floor. Take a look using our Visualizer.
Depth and Richness
Our proprietary techniques are used to manipulate and enrich the wood from within to create colors with extraordinary depth and richness. The various reactive processes are meticulously applied to every plank which elicits a uniquely Atelier response from the wood. Every Atelier floor tells a story all its own.
Unlike urethane finishes, our finishes allow the wood to breathe. They create beautiful matte finishes and offer a lifetime of enjoyment when maintained properly. Our finishes also allow easy spot treatments if needed to keep your floor looking amazing.
The tannins in our planks continue to evolve and change. As your Atelier floor ages, it will become richer in color and develop a natural patina that is unique to your floor. Like a fine wine, it improves with age.
