Harper & Sandilands is a Melbourne-based company who manufacture Royal Oak Floors
Harper & Sandilands specialise in premium wide-board timber floors that are durable, elegant, distinctive and can enhance the look of both contemporary architectural spaces and traditional homes.
They also offer an exclusive range of matching solid oak mouldings and trims, that enable floor boards to be utilised across a unique and stunning array of applications including ceilings, walls and cabinetry.
Our Aged boards are designed to display ‘worn’ characteristics whilst our Antique boards use recycled timber showing splits and cracks and rustic pegging.
French Oak in ‘Driftwood’ (pictured above) combines the beauty of French Oak that has characteristic grain swirl around large knots with a chemical process that brings out a nutty brown base colour. A grey wash is applied then cut back before being finished in hard wax oil. The overall effect of this hand-finished floor is a soft warm grey with great depth to the colour and beautiful timber feature.
French Oak in ‘Pale Grey’ (pictured above) uses French Oak and again, applies a chemical process that brings out a nutty brown base colour. A heavy grey wash is applied then lightly cut back before being finished in hard wax oil. Compared to Driftwood, Pale Grey is lighter in tone and flatter in finish with less brown base showing through reminiscent of perfect off-form cement but soft and liveable.

American Oak in ‘Antique Stout Brown’ (pictured above) has the look of a very old and rustic floor that uses recycled antique oak, some of which can be over 300 years old. The top layer is oak that has been engineered onto a multiply base for stability. The top surface of the boards has been deliberately left rustic and unfilled, butterfly-shaped repair pieces are incorporated throughout the floor and add to the overall effect. It comes pre-finished with a UV oil finish coating.

Teak in ‘Burnished Gold’ (pictured above) is the colour of treacle. This rich and beautiful timber is enhanced by the handwork of Artisans who facet, scrape, distress and polish each board. It is a slow process but the results are there forever.
The Teak is sourced from fallen cyclone-damaged trees along the Mexican coast and is available in widths up to 310mm.

Or 230mm or 310mm widths.
American Oak ‘Smoked’ (pictured above) is a mid honey colour oak and has been one of the most popular colours in the Architect Collection. “Smoked” refers to the fumigation process used to oxidise the boards prior to finishing and is used to get the natural warm colour that American Oak goes to over time without the wait. This Smoked colour permeates right through the oak layer so it can never be sanded off and gives a more natural look than staining. Long lasting flat UV lacquer clear coat is used.
