GENUINE RECLAIMED ENGINEERED FLOORING
Our genuine reclaimed engineered flooring gives you the opportunity to own a piece of history.
The reclaimed oaks that have been used in creating this product have all been sourced from buildings and ships constructed in the 18th and 19th centuries. The reclaimed pines are from early to mid-20th century.
The trees from which the timber was derived, grew in forests rich in biodiversity. They were felled when they reached maturity – often hundreds of years old – and possess features that cannot be seen in the new timbers of today: Denser grains, unmatched size and richer deeper colours. These features imbue the timber with an intrinsic beauty and durability that is unsurpassable by new timber.
What better way to impress your guests than to tell them that the floor they are standing on could have once been the deck of a Gondola in 19th century Venice, the roof beams of a Victorian workhouse, the stable doors of the Royal Mews or the pillars of a Brunel bridge!
It is in the ‘Trafalgar’ range that you see the most texture and interest. The oak in this range has been taken from the very external face of the original timber. You are seeing the same face of the timber that your forbears of the 18th and 19th century would have seen, along with all the marks that the passage of time has endowed this beautiful, characterful range of flooring.
Our other ranges in this genuine reclaimed collection are taken from ‘inside’ cuts of the same historic timbers. You see rich and unique dense grain patterns but with a smoother finish as these have been sawn after the external face of the timber has been removed. These are exquisite in their own right because there is a limited supply of such timber in the world and when these old constructions have all been dismantled, there will be no more timber with such history, character and interest.
