Iroko is a timber species from Western Africa. Freshly installed it looks almost yellow. However, after a couple of months, it ages into a very nice rich, honey colour. This is the closest colour to a traditional NZ native timber species like Rimu.
The floor has been down since 2010 and still looks as good as when it was done. Best floor we could have put down in a high use area. Andrew Denton

I bought Karelia Arctic oak in the 188mm wide boards. We used the wood to replace tiles in our kitchen dining and front entrance way. The floor looks awesome now. I put it down myself and found it relatively simple. The joins lock together nicely and even though the existing floor wasn’t as level as I could have made it there is no squeaking or movement. I dealt mainly with Donna throughout the whole process and found her great to deal with. I changed my mind a fair bit before purchasing the floor so she was very patient and never tried to push me one way or another. Both her and Boris gave great advice and were both a pleasure to deal with. I would definitely recommend the product and the team at Karelia.
We are delighted with our floor and the way it enhances our home. The installation was carried out by our builder and this proved straightforward, thanks to the comprehensive instructions which are well worth reading carefully. We were most impressed with the fit and finish of each board and the way everything fitted together so accurately. The finished floor looks amazing and seems to be standing up well to our children and dog.
What a fantastic quality product! Easy to install (with help from my builder) and great service from the team at Karelia incl. keen pricing. The results speak for themselves with value added to our home in a timeless fashion. Love walking on it (in bare feet) and looking at the visual symphony of (beech) wood which warms the senses. Has completely transformed our home and friend's reactions confirm the same positive response. Can't speak highly enough of it....If you are in the market of parquet flooring, look no further!
