Surfaces

Handmade custom surface finishes, artistic workmanship. The boards are treated one by one, resulting in sanded, sandblasted, planed, rounded or worn finishes, thus our artisan touch excels in every single plank.

All our floors are unique based on the 13 surface preparations. Combined with 144 standard colours, three grades and requested gloss level, the possibilities are almost endless.

Aged
Hand smoothing to create “groove” effects along the top and edges of the board. This creates the pronounced three dimensional effect of a surface marked by the signs of time.

Rounded and irregular bevel on 4 sides.

Engraved
Reserved exclusively for the Palatine collection, this process recreates the unique atmosphere of ancient noble palaces. Deep incisions run lightly along the piece, revealing the most intimate beauty of the wood.

Hand planed and antiqued
This is the most complex manual treatment, combining planing and ageing to reproduce the style of bygone days and the signs left by time. Bevel on 4 sides.

Hand sculptured
This exclusive manual process is performed by master craftsmen using chisel blade planes. The result is an evocative interweaving between the marks left by the sculpting and the grain of each individual board. Bevel on 4 sides.

Rounded and hand planed
In addition to hand planing, the long sides of the boards are also rounded manually to give the floor an attractive “wave” effect.

Rounded and sandblasted
The wave effect on the long side of the boards gives the surface a three-dimensional effect, while sandblasting emphasises the naturalness of the wood grain. Bevel on 4 sides.

Sawn and sandblasted
The 7.2 mm thick wood slat are sawn and sandblasted. The enhanced grain down the length of the board combines with the marks left by the sawing to create a geometric pattern exclusive to Mardegan Legno. Bevel on 4 sides.
