Inspiration behind Provence Hardwood

French Connection Collection

When we first designed our French inspired hardwood collection, we envisioned a Provencal landscape filled with olive trees, lavender fields, and golden, sun-filled wheat farmland. The luminous colors and incredible movement within this landscape became our muse when we designed Provence.

“We aimed to create a perfectly timeless light-blond hardwood, not too warm or too cool, with a broad variation of shades.” – Jim Hilaski, President

One of our favorite Van Gogh paintings, “Wheatfield with Cypresses”, elevated the final design. The painting’s showcase of amazing color range and captivating motion-like shapes were incorporated within the hardwood graining detail.

The resulting incandescent shade instantaneously brings light into any interior and simulates a soft, everlasting light on a Parisian summer afternoon.
