Lucas Lau of Lax Studios chose the Oak Pallido herringbone flooring from the Havwoods Italian Collection for a luxurious Melbourne penthouse apartment to bring all the spaces together harmoniously.

The owners of this Melbourne apartment desired a space that delivered penthouse living and also functioned as an occasional guesthouse. Lau was approached to create and execute a concept that would navigate the challenges of heritage facades and neighbouring apartments and yet deliver a modern, stylish penthouse.

Approaching the penthouse interior design project as a large blank canvas, Lau sought to create distinctive spaces that would work coherently and come together in a unifying way. The selection of a floor covering was, therefore, pivotal to the project.

Lau said that the selection of Havwoods’ Oak Pallido Herringbone provided this unity. Yet through its pattern and subtle shades within the timber planks, a sophistication echoing the interior and furniture was achieved.

The stunning Oak Pallido herringbone timber flooring provides warmth and style at the same time, coupled with durability and low maintenance to ensure the penthouse is not only the perfect place to spend one’s time but also a special, elegant and sophisticated space to host guests.
