COLLECTION:

Originals

Abbey Ale

Our originals collection encapsulates the rustic and aged charm of a truly authentic antique wooden floor, These floors are made to order using modern materials and construction methods to meet the most demanding building specifications.
Available in wide boards and parquet, this range rich coloured flooring is specifically suited to historic buildings or warehouse conversions, but can equally serve as a statement floor in any modern setting.

The grain is enhanced by both surface planing and soft brushing, adding to the authenticity of these aged floors. Loved by designers and architectural specialists these create a striking look suitable for
both heritage and contemporary interiors. Available in two thicknesses of engineered boards in plank, herringbone or chevron.
