CALI introduces the Barrel Collection — luxury cuts of European white oak in beautiful, understated, neutral shades to give homes a refresh that will never go out of style.
Named for both the wine barrel and the barrel of a wave, the collection pays tribute to two distinct California cultures – wine valleys and surfing. With names like Sonoma Salt, Pacific Crush, and Beach Town Blanc, the nine Barrel colors offer the perfect blend of craftsmanship and coastal attitude.
Measuring 74-13/16” by 7-½” and 1/2″ thick, Barrel planks are engineered and feature a 2mm plain sliced beauty layer of European white oak over a core of sustainable acacia wood. This eco-friendly design makes planks more dimensionally stable and enables four times as much flooring from each oak tree compared to solid wood. All timber is Lacey Act certified for healthy forests, and planks are low-VOC for healthy homes. Made to be easy to live on, Barrel planks are protected by a robust, scratch-resistant aluminum oxide finish, keeping them simple to clean and pet-friendly. This collection is tongue-and-groove milled for installation flexibility, and like all CALI wood floors, Barrel is backed by a 50-year residential and 15-year commercial warranty – one of the strongest warranties in the category.
“Barrel hits a sweet spot in the flooring space,” says CALI president, Doug Jackson. “We were very intentional with respect to design, color, and pricing. The lighter palette is on trend and exactly what our customers want, and the value is designed to sway any floor-buying decision.”
The new CALI Hardwoods Barrel collection is now available for purchase at CaliFloors.com and at partner showrooms across the nation.
