Distressed to impress: Kentwood delivers on top trend with new Milltown Collection

January 2017:  In response to today’s trending “distressed” aesthetic, renowned flooring brand Kentwood is excited to present The Milltown Collection. This one-of-a-kind line of hardwood floors gives the popular raw, rustic look a refined new edge, which is achieved through the thoughtful application of saw marks to the surface of each hardwood oak plank. The results? Imperfection has never been more beautiful.


The Milltown Collection appeals to a wide variety of style preferences, finding itself equally at home in a country-chic cottage, a city-cool condo or in that untouchable luxury estate on the hill.


Regardless of where these stunning floors end up, they’ll stand the test of time in terms of look and durability alike. “What I love about Milltown is that these are floors that take what life has to throw at them. They’re floors you can live on,” says vice-president of sales and marketing, Brady Page. “You can host a big dinner party, children and pets can play all day on these floors and they will take it all. Because of their weathered surface, these floors age particularly well over time, even improving with age.”


The weathered, barn-board-style collection is complemented by a palette of contemporary colours that range from soft greys to bold browns.
