Deco Wood Floor Competition Winner meets his Frozen Umber

Our recent competition sparked a wave of inspired entries as we asked you to suggest a new name for the final wood in our new, contemporary Deco wood floor collection.

The ultra modern engineered wood flooring range consists of six modern colours and finishes, created with a combination of traditional colouring techniques to deliver soft, subtle tones.

John Perkins, from Pontyclun in Mid-Glamorgan, Wales was selected as our winner, naming the final wood in the collection;

Frozen Umber, “Frozen Umber is inspired from cold winter days when rich warm tones of umber coloured earth have been frosted over. All these elements are prominent in the strong character of these beautiful oak floors.”

He visited his local V4 retailer, Floor De Lee this week to collect his £1000.00 prize voucher towards a new Deco wood floor.

His reaction to winning, “All I can say is WOW! Thank you so much, this is incredible news for me as I never win anything and just entered the competition as I already have V4 in my dining room and like it so much.”

Frozen Umber, along with the other finishes in the full Deco collection, features a stylish finish, produced from a 6mm top layer of real oak, which is lightly brushed to release its natural grain. A coat of wood lye is then hand applied to lighten and softly bleach the oak surface. The result is a textured, yet smooth surface, to which layers of coloured oil are applied to create deep lustred boards, each with a distinctive tone and grain variation.

Wonderfully stylish, the DECO boards combine on-trend modern tones with the authentic grains and textures of real oak.
