Why choose wooden flooring in chestnut?
The most classic American oak parquet is now so common that it is sometimes overdone and quite common. Wooden flooring in chestnut, rather, is an undoubtedly more exclusive alternative. Chestnut is a typical wood of the Mediterranean maquis and throughout the European territory, with variegated fibres that make it stand out from American oak, offering a valid alternative in terms of comfort and aesthetic impact. In addition, chestnut is also suited to a variety of finishes and colour alternatives.
