Any experience with French Connection by Garrison? - white oak
Would like to install Garrison French Connection (Chandon or Lava) in 90% of our house, but would like to know if anyone has experience with this particular floor. Or with Garrison? It appears they have many lines.
I have tried an exhaustive search on Google, but cannot seem to find alot of user feedback on it. Makes me nervous.
However, the vendor I'm using is very reputable and been in business since 1962. They have been selling the product for 4 years and the estimator says it's a good product. But in today's Google age, I always like to do my own research as I'm sure most people on GW are like :)
I have two boys under age 4, no pets and a husband who loves wearing his shoes in the house (he has "sensitive toes" lol). I picked this floor because it's wire brushed and feel the variegated coloring of the Chandon color will be very forgiving.
I'm ok with the maintenance of an oil finished floor (in theory, ha ha)
Also, one of the areas where this will be laid is not on slab and may have very slight undulations so we needed something that would be forgiving with that as well.
Below is the link. We like the Chandon the best. In person, there is much less white streaking.
Also, here is a pic to the gallery so you can see it installed. I love it.
If I could hear from at least one other person that has this floor, it would make me more comfortable.
