Hand-Made Antique Floors
Using 150-300 year old hand-cut or pit-sawn timber, we work with the existing patina and textures to create the most sumptuous antique floors, which work in both traditional and very contemporary settings. English craftsmen, hand French-polishing, traditional waxes and a deep 40-year knowledge of antique raw materials allow us to make beautiful, unique wooden floors.
Each floor is a one-off project, and takes on average 6-9 months from first enquiry to completion. We only take on 5-6 projects per year. This is because sourcing good enough timber is becoming the critical factor to completing these projects, to the highest quality level.
We take great care sourcing and purchasing the right raw material. We then do a joiner's rod survey of each room and space. Once this has been converted to our CAD facility, 2 or 3 different lay-outs are drawn up and offered to the client. These focus on where the Central Crown row is best placed, how one deals with doorways and other transitional parts, finessing details around room edges, skirtings, expansion points, bay windows etc.
