Whether light or dark: this wood is as colourful as life itself.
The wood of ash is simply to fall in love with. The ancient Romans already knew this, believing that Cupid, the god of love, carved his arrows out of ash. The ash tree also has a special meaning in many other mythologies. For example, the evergreen ash tree Yggdrasil, as a world tree, embodied the entire cosmos for the Germanic tribes.
Let a piece of mystical nature move into your home. Whether plank or ship's floor, the noble ash has long secured a place among the most popular parquet woods. It is hard to imagine the Scandinavian furnishing trend without it. By nature, the wood of the ash is white to yellowish. Oiled or colour-finished planks, however, show a wide variety of colours. In addition to its decorative grain, ash parquet also has an enchanting spectrum of colours ranging from white to strong brown.
Wood species: Ash (Fraxinus excelsior)
Wood colour: white-yellowish, colour refinement
Use: furniture, tool handles, sailing tiller, sport bow
The history of ash proves that it is a hardy wood species. Ash is the only tree species from the olive family that found its way back to Europe after the Ice Age and the formation of the Alps. Here it now makes itself at home even at altitudes of up to 1600 metres. Even within your own four walls, parquet made from ash wood can withstand high loads. Even in rooms with high stress, ash is an optimal floor covering.
Ash wood - robust by nature
The wood species ash is considered to be tough, elastic and resistant. Thus, ash is a hard wood that is at the same time extremely elastic and flexible. It is no coincidence that ash is still the preferred wood for sports bows as well as tool handles. Parquet made of ash is even a little bit harder than parquet made of oak. This makes ash parquet the ideal flooring for anyone looking for a hard-wearing floor for a heavily used living area.
Does ash parquet change colour over time?
Colour changes in wood are completely natural. Exposure to sunlight usually causes light floors to darken, while dark floors become slightly lighter. The light ash wood thus becomes darker over time and the yellowish hue is intensified. Steamed parquet made of ash also changes colour over time. The dark planks become noticeably lighter. The through-dyed woods from our parkettmanufaktur by HARO, however, remain almost without colour change.
Colour variety through modern wood finishes
Parquet made of ash wood is naturally light. This makes it look friendly and inviting even in small rooms. Our HARO Range offers you much more than just light ash parquet. The use of oils and natural wood finishing techniques, such as steaming and smoking, creates a wide variety of colours in our parquet made of ash.
