It's Kahrs engineered hardwood ( They're a Sweedish company. The wood type is: KAHRS, Doussie Dakar, 5” width, 9/16” thickness.

I found this other site with showcasing pictures of their floors:

Keep in mind that exotic woods "tan" with time, so it's best to move furniture & rugs around till they all darken evenly (they all catch up and even out). Mine don't look like the samples anymore but we were told to expect richer color. These floors are ~5 years old. So far, floors seem to like Bona cleaners & high-gloss polish products.

Good luck with your search!

The gray colors in the room are:
Sherwin Williams "Requisite Gray" (SW 7023) and "Alpaca" (SW 7022).

Shelves are painted in "Marshmallow" (SW 7001). The gray counter top on the shelf is stained birch--achieved with 50/50 mix of Bechwood and Rustic Gray. Make sure you test the stainers to get desired tone (nothing looks like the swatches). This one luckily has same gray warmth as the wall paint.

The shades are from Smith and Noble ( They are "solar shades" and come in different gradients to let more or less light.

Advantage of solar shades is that there is daytime privacy from the outside and you can still enjoy your views. Unfortunately the color I have here has been discontinued but they have similar ones. You can order free swatches. They're very easy to install but make sure you get the measurements very accurate.

I found these 2 desks at West Elm ( They're called "Parsons desk" and come in Mirror, Laquered White, and Galvanized Metal. Price didn't kill my budget and S&H is very reasonable as well. They've both very good and I've read some readers used this same desk as a console table somewhere else in the house.

Two matching desks were put in the room, one in white lacquer (visible in the previous photo), and one in mirror. The walls were painted a rosy gray to keep things neutral but still add warmth.
