Bois Brûlé collection by Secret d’Atelier


Secret d’Atelier unveils his new collection  ”Bois Brûlé”  inspired by the Japanese ancestral technique Shou-sugi ban. The advantage of this technique is that it protects the wood naturally by carbonization. The wooden boards are placed on a bed of ember for about ten minutes. The craftsman will then clean each board to rid it of coal residues, water it before letting dry and coat it with oil to complete the finish. The boards are perfectly protected against UV, weather and insects and become absolutely immune due to the resistant surface.


Secret d’Atelier, always in search of originality got its inspiration for this new collection from the past. Each floorboard is worked and burned by hand, creating unique parquet that is ingeniously aged to uncover warm shades and tones. The diversity of the used oils makes it possible to create a multitude of finishes unique for each creation. Rustic and elegant, the burned wood fits perfectly into any interior, whether industrial or luxurious. Secret d ’Atelier succeeded thus to combine the authenticity of the burned wood with the modernity of a customized parquet.


Secret d’Atelier is the first French luxury floor design house. It combines the historical know-how with today’s technological innovations to conceive its custom-made creations. Secret d’Atelier’s products are designed for both professionals and individuals who want to dress their floor with innovative, original and of impeccable quality flooring. Secret d’Atelier considers the parquet as a new form of expression of interior architecture designed to brighten up spaces of prestige: an experience allowing the floor to regain its former honored posture.
