When French heritage and flooring luxury combine

GH Commercial presents the Corsica Chevron by Godfrey Hirst – an all-new engineered timber solution informed by centuries of design ingenuity.

When French heritage and flooring luxury combine

The origins of parquetry can be traced all the way back to the 17th century technique known as Marquetry. An intricate process used for making furniture, Marquetry involved inlaying small pieces of wood into delicate patterns. The application of this approach to flooring gained rapid popularity as the birth of parquetry swept across Europe, becoming the standard flooring style in formal rooms for palaces and mansions throughout the continent.

Even now, parquetry remains a symbol of luxury and opulence. From Herringbone to the ever-popular Chevron style, parquetry provides a timeless and elegant outlet for design expression in modern and traditional spaces alike. Chevron in particular has an ethereal sophistication which is often used in high-end spaces looking to express feelings of luxury.

And there is perhaps no Chevron more luxurious than Godfrey Hirst’s Corsica Chevron. With a real European Oak surface, Corsica Chevron has the true-to-life diversity of knot and grain variations which create authentic, natural spaces. Every board offers clean yet distinctive character, finished with a high-quality lacquer from Germany and a light brush veneer for maximum performance. Corsica Chevron walks on a tightrope of impossibilities: it is natural, yet durable; contemporary, yet timeless; and malleable, yet full of character.

This new range is an extension of the Corsica Oak range and features four of the most popular colours carrying over into a new parquetry style board. With a genuine French Oak veneer, and Wear Guard UV cured lacquer to fortify against spills or general wear, this is the perfect flooring solution for high-end spaces – particularly in premium hospitality venues and luxury apartments.

Flooring provides the foundational backdrop upon which all spaces are built. Whether in a bar, restaurant or hotel, flooring is fundamental to the creation of a specific atmosphere. Creating a luxurious environment is simple with Corsica Chevron, which holds a superior durability capable of keeping up with the high-pressure demands of hospitality environments.

GH Commercial has a profound commitment to sustainability. Corsica Chevron is PEFC Chain of Custody Certified, meaning that it has been sustainably sourced from responsibly-managed forests which adhere to the highest ecological, cultural, ethical and environmental standards. The PEFC Chain of Custody certification accounts for every log from forest to floor, guaranteeing that the timber in these products has been ethically produced.
