OLD NOGHERA Hand‐planed finishing, oiled and waxed: the charm of infinite shades of walnut
The “Noghera” in Veneto dialect is the “walnut”, the nut-bearing tree. This wood is known for its aesthetic characteristics, and since ancient times has been used for making fine furniture and planks in old farmhouses. The Walnut is a common tree in Italy, particularly known for its noble, warm and charmingly variegated wood. Cadorin proposes the “Noghera”, in a wood flooring from the Epoch Old Noghera Planks collection: big wooden planks, completely hand planed and enhanced in their extraordinary tones and shades with natural oil and wax.
The wood flooring is made in three hardwood layers, from 12 to 28 cm in width for lengths of up to 3 metres, all obtained from the cutting of the same piece. That’s why, in your living room, you can find on the ground the design of a large Noghera.
This is certainly an exclusive flooring with multiple variants that reflect the themes of the boards of times past. The typical variegated grains and the large knots help to give the room its own personality.
In the making of the wood flooring, each feature or grain of the wood is enhanced, the knots are carefully secured and treated with wood paste, and the planing of the surface entirely by the hands of craftsmen gives an irregular and vintage look, making it even more special and unique.
