Australian Wormy Chestnut Flooring

Eucalyptus Obliqua, E.Sieberi and E.Fastigata

Australian Wormy Chestnut is as individual as you are. The harshness of life deep in Australia’s south-eastern forests is etched in to the grainy heart of every Australian Wormy Chestnut floorboard.

Attacks from blistering bushfires, the parched years of drought, the ravages of insects and the sand-blasting of relentless winds shapes a bespoke wood perfect for today’s modern design requirements.

Wormy Chestnut is aptly named: squiggly worm trails, ambrosia beetle holes and deep red veins reflect its struggle for survival in the savage beauty of the Australian landscape.

This is a low maintenance wood that makes a statement and is finding favour with designers and architects nationally and internationally.
