Millboard have announced two exciting new developments. On the back of customer demand, it has launched a brand new colour: Enhanced Grain Burnt Cedar, and an upgrade to its existing Weathered Oak Embered line.
The new colour, Burnt Cedar, has been created to reflect the burnt texture that customers have been asking for. It strikes the right balance between warmth and design flexibility. These atmospheric boards draw their influence from the traditional Japanese Yakisugi technique. A method that produces the charred surface associated with heritage Eastern architecture. Western design has fully embraced the aesthetic, utilising it in prestigious builds across Europe and the USA.
While creating this new line, Millboard developed an enhanced coating, to be applied to Burnt Cedar and also to the existing Embered style.
Millboard’s Steven Holmes, Product Manager states that:
“This new coating is ideally suited to our darkest boards and offers improved stain, UV and fade resistance. It offers improved heat reflection and reduces surface temperatures significantly – an important feature for black toned flooring. This coating also protects against long-term wear.”
Millboard’s Marketing Manager, Caroline Birdsall, states that the new line makes:
“a dramatic statement and complements the existing product range beautifully. As a company, we are very engaged with major design trends and we are already seeing a lot of interest in Burnt Cedar. The colour lends a bold elegance to any design scheme but also looks understated and clean in a contemporary landscape.”
‘We are also thrilled to offer the newly enhanced Embered style. We are positive that both developments will be incredibly popular with our customers.’
The new Burnt Cedar line will join current best sellers Brushed Basalt and Driftwood. Millboard decking is the only hand moulded decking available and has been featured on Grand Designs, Ugly House to Lovely House, and Love Your Garden with Alan Titchmarsh.
