We have taken everything we learnt about restoring and reclaiming old wood and translated it to new woods in order to create bold new design statements, whilst paying homage to centuries-old originals.
These floors have extraordinary proportions, designs, textures and finishes and have engineered constructions suitable for modern life.
High in quality and designed to last, these thoughtfully designed wood floors are versatile, hardwearing and enduring in their appeal. Not all new wood floors are created equal, and we make no apologies for the fact that our handcrafted floors are a cut above the competition.
English Oak is an exceptional variety and is revered for being the finest oak in this species.
Due to being wilder, more naturally grown, this wood features an incredible natural grain pattern throughout the logs. These pedunculate logs are very different to the tall sensile Oaks from commercial forests.
It’s also slowly grown, meaning that the growth rings inside are much tighter than in quicker grown woods, with the hue being richer in colour as a result too.
This wood is amongst the densest oaks available, making it an incredibly durable choice for your floor.
Perhaps most importantly, when quarter sawn, this wood features the broadest medullary rays of any oak. These are beautiful natural veins that run across the planks.
Emulating wood floors which have been walked upon for centuries, we’ve crafted our Aged European Oak wood floors to embody all of the characteristics of our favourite antique woods.
All of our Aged floors are slowly seasoned for 24 months before we begin any handcrafting. This important ageing draws out the beautiful shape, texture and movement which makes this oak so special.
We consider these woods part of our Woodworks 'house style' and our ability in which we bring out this natural undulating texture is unparalleled across the globe.
Grown in the Northern and Eastern regions of the USA, this wood experiences bright sunshine and harsh winters. The natural weathering contributes to the texture and grain pattern differences within the wood, meaning no two pieces will ever been exactly the same.
By hand polishing American Black Walnut can reach an exceedingly smooth finish. It develops a lustrous patina that is prized for its intense strength, interesting grain and unique colour.
The name Douglas Fir honors David Douglas, the Scottish botanist who first reported the nature of this pine species.
Originating from the western coast of the United States, this evergreen tree grows in dense forest areas and has naturalized through Europe and South America.
The tree’s heartwood produces a light pink tone with a wide circling grain pattern, and inside you’ll also find tight growth rings.
Despite the perception of Pine as a softwood, Douglas Fir is used for joinery, veneer, flooring and construction due to its strength, hardness, resilience and durability. Even the only wooden ships still currently in use by the United States Navy are crafted using Douglas Fir.
Statement floors with true modernity.
We broke all the rules when it came to dimensions in 1997.
Wooden planks had traditionally been very thin beforehand, but we pioneered planks in wider widths and longer lengths, much earlier than they became a mainstream idea. We have continued to push the boundaries with wide planks ever since.
Now crafted into extreme widths as large as 16”, the specifications that make up our Superwide collection are amongst the most impressive available, regardless of material.
This modern wide plank look is designed to create a bold design statement, even in the largest of spaces, where a true impact can be made.
When lasting design meets modern innovation and intricate craftsmanship to create timeless, stand-out pieces.
Parquetry is our passion and within this collection you will find classic designs and modern interpretations.
From the iconic elegance of a Versailles panel to our own extraordinary circular inventions, these exquisite designs are statement pieces which showcase the very best of our artisans’ handcrafting skills.
Many of these woods are fumed to bring out the rich patina of the wood, with each element being precisely placed together to ensure the perfect match across the entire motif of your floor, which you certainly won’t find elsewhere.
Expressions of true artisanal talent and developed of many years by our Woodworks experts, is our Editions collection.
Our Editions floors are crafted from the very best sustainably source European Oak, Douglas Fir, American Black Walnut and European Larch. Each of these engineered floors is a limited edition, with a variety of tones, textures and finishes punctuating each.
These floors also host beautiful character and style throughout, and our fine artisan finishing means they are a cut above the competition in every sense.
