Showroom: A Touch of the Arctic on a Summer Day

 

Terra Legno's newest introduction to its Quercia collection offers clients a fresh, modern option in engineered wood flooring. Image courtesy Terra Legno.Sometimes basic brown just doesn’t do it. That’s exactly the thinking behind the new Arctic White offering from Terra Legno—a new addition to the company’s Quercia collection. The engineered wood flooring provides a light, bright alternative to heavy, dark shades and is a natural fit in commercial or residential spaces where a contemporary look and long-lasting, hard-wearing floors are required.

Besides being physically durable, a quality the company has perfected over years of development and research, the material is easy to clean and changes color only slightly when exposed to light over time. It has a thickness of 9/16 inches, a width of five inches and comes in an oil finish. 

“Terra Legno is named after the Italian word meaning ‘earthy wood,’ ” notes Richmond Eshaghoff, the firm’s managing partner. “Like Italian artisans, we too take pride in our work and the careful crafting of our engineered hardwood flooring that is FSC certified and has been harvested from forests certified to be practicing environmentally and economically responsible forestry.”
