Global hardwood supplier announces Canadian debut

Thursday, January 17, 2019

Global hardwood supplier, Havwoods International has announced plans to open its first Canadian showroom in Toronto.

“Havwoods International has opened showrooms in design districts of major cities across the world such as London, Dubai, Sydney, Rome, Melbourne, and New York City,” said Allan Singh, general manager of Havwoods International. “Our first showroom in Canada provides clientele in the Toronto area with convenient access to the brand’s superior quality wood designs for both the residential and commercial markets.”

Sophie-Zacha Lameret, manager of Havwoods International’s New York City showroom said that the opening of its first location in Canada is in response to the growing demand for engineered wood products.

Engineered wood flooring is hardwood flooring where the boards consist of more than one layer of material.  According to Lameret, it’s more durable, sustainable, and stable compared to other hardwood flooring and it’s easy to clean and maintain.

“We always tell our clients for every wood project that the humidity of the space has to be monitored,” Lameret added.

You cannot have a humidity level under 35 per cent or over 55 per cent as hardwood flooring reacts to changes in the environment. Low humidity can cause the wood to shrink and high level can cause expansion. As a general rule, areas should be adequately ventilated to prevent a build of moisture in the atmosphere.

At the 1,600-square-foot hardwood flooring showroom in Old Town Toronto’s King East Design District, you will be able to, learn more about engineered hardwood, pick out samples, use the space to meet with clients, get project consultations and inspiration. Toronto’s Havwoods location will be open in March 2019.
