This kind of Oak is called so due to its reddish shade of its wood. It grows in the North America and around the Mediterranean Sea and, as well as its relative - a white oak, is highly appreciated for its sturdiness and classical appearance. As years go by floors from a red oak become covered with a unique patina of golden-red colour. Traditionally Oak considers as a symbol of improbable force, therefore oak floors are called long-livers. They keep their beauty for many years. And as true lords of creation they set the fashion to any interior, being an ideal background for lively designer catch.
