Exotic Hardwoods from FSC-Certified Forests by BR-111

Amid the recent influx of manufactured alternatives to wood, it’s nice to see a company that’s able to go back to basics without dipping into the font of environmental degradation and toxicity. The BR-111 exotic hardwood floors – like the Cubix, Metro and Reserve Collections, among others – are engineered products that manage to achieve a synthesis of material purity and sustainability. The secret? BR-111 sources FSC-Certified wood: “Durable. Simple. Beautiful. Wood floors can transform any space and reflect understated style or bold sophistication.”

As the man says, “ain’t that the truth.” Truly, there’s nothing like the pure beauty and durable simplicity of wood. And the material shines so very brightly with BR-111’s new Metro and Reserve Collections.

Both lines offer the slightly rustic yet eminently elegant aspect of wide planks. With an 8” width, Reserve and Metro display the kind of versatile aesthetic appeal to grace a Zermatt ski lodge, a cavernous Tuscan villa, or a spacious Manhattan penthouse with equal aplomb.

The Metro line is comprised of lighter-toned woods: Brazilian Cherry, Tigerwood, Brazilian Walnut, and Santos Mahogany cover the spectrum of these light and bright styles. From the slightly reddish tint of Santos Mahogany to the distinctive sheen of Brazilian Cherry—“Featuring varied grain patterns, coupled with a litany of colorful hues, Brazilian Cherry matures to a beautiful, rich mosaic over time.”

The Reserve Collection offers the same width, thickness (3/4”), and wear layer (4mm) in the slightly more urbane incarnation of oak—and seven incarnations at that, each exhibiting a pronounced European sophistication. Choose from Avignon, Brittany, Chambord, KingsBridge, Lorrain, Normandy, and Rhone, each deeding “a beautiful combination of contemporary and rustic that will instantly add a modern, sophisticated feel to any room.”
