Flooring as an essential design component

Building and how to build has a special place in Anders Olsson’s heart. For more than 20 years, he built a paper wholesales business. Since he sold the company, there have mostly been other types of projects, such as developing villas and properties.

He tells us about his new track of life.

“Buildings and construction projects have always interested me. So, when I came across some property in the western harbour of Malmö – a place where classic Kockums once lay – I decided to make a difference. Today, you find a tenant-owner association and five completed and sold villas there.”

Modern villa at the sea

We have decided to meet Anders Olsson in Kämpinge bay, by Höllviken. There he lives with his wife Pia in a functional, modernistic style villa. The setting is idyllic with the sea and the tranquillity outside the windows. And the city of Malmö is only 15 minutes away.

Broad planks and herringbone

When choosing floors, the expectations were high.

“We met Fredrik at Kullaberg Flooring at a trade fair. He had a very small stand, but he immediately understood what we were looking for. I was captured by his skills, responsiveness, and flexibility. It also felt sustainable and safe as his lumber came from his own forest.”

The meeting resulted in a beautiful floor in their turn-of-the-century villa. A floor with a slightly worn feel, using planks in different widths. When they later built a new house, the choice of floor went to Kullaberg again. This time with wide planks in a herringbone pattern, with a border plank throughout most of the house. In addition, Kullaberg built a wooden staircase on site.

Choice of material and colour scheme

When asked whether Anders would consider any other floor material than wood, he laughs.

“I have to admit that we have stone floors in the bathroom, but it is more for practical reasons. And yes, we have carpet in the bedroom, but that’s all.”

Anders sees the floor as an important interior part of the whole. These include material selection and colour scheme. He draws inspiration from many different sources, often at furniture fairs.

Wood creating life and movement

The whole family is happy with the result, but is there anything special they want to highlight?

“I would say the personal feel. But also, the product itself, it can’t be more rustic and authentic than this. The comfortable and soft feel of walking barefoot on the floor is wonderful. And the soft edge of each floorboard creates a sense of life and movement. We also have two large dogs, which the floor handles very well.

The importance of laying floors

Anders would like to send along some tips to remember when choosing a floor.

“The floor must fit into your whole style and match the character of the house. Also, do not forget about the actual laying of the floor. It is important that the planks are laid in the right direction. Fredrik has that knowledge and is happy to share from his experiences.”
