Stunning Mixed Teak Floor

This is to show you parquet fans how beautiful a floor can be! 
This mixed teak floor was recently laid in a mid century house near us in Lincoln and suits it really well, all the colours and grain of the wood giving a vibrancy and warmth to the room. An exciting floor and beautifully laid in herringbone with a double line border. The whole thing took about a week to do for one man, but there were 7 doorways!

These photos just illustrate how reclaimed parquet is a lovely quality, very classy flooring with just a bit of time and patience.

Oak from North and South

School in Plaistow
We have recently acquired some reclaimed English oak, from a school on the Queen's West Road, Plaistow on the edge of London. A nice clean block which is selling out fast. Then we have travelled all the way up the length of the country to Middlesborough to source another nice oak block, slightly larger in size, but also a great looking block

For very good aesthetic reason, oak is the favoured timber for many customers. However our customers often tell us that whilst you can source Chinese oak in a new block, it is very satisfying to have the character of proper English oak which is reclaimed and has travelled no further than a few hundred miles. The other big plus is that it doesn't shrink the way a new block will, so as you would expect from English oak - it is reliable!
