This floor's story
Centuries ago, Grand Tours by Europe’s elite traversed remote inner Alpine valleys amid the slow-growing, centuries-old Swiss Pine, Spruce and Larch, and past the Alps’ eternal glaciers to reach the gemütlichkeit of romantic mountain inns…
They returned with tales of romantic Alpine landscapes, their ubiquitous pine-built buildings and cozy rooms – Zirbelstuben – clad with super-resilient, sweet-scented pinewood of the locally felled Zirbelkiefern.
BROUGHT BACK FROM THE ALPS FOR YOU
Centuries later, we returned from the Alps with scarce supplies of antique pineal wood and meticulously readied them for the next part of their story – in your project. Featuring the inside face of former interior panelling, our artisans painstakingly restored each carefully selected timber into engineered, end-matched, tongue-and-groove planks with exquisite hand-rolled edges. Naturally, they carefully preserved every authentic feature from centuries of lightning strikes and snow-breakage during harsh Alpine winters…
IMAGINE HOW AMAZING THIS WOOD WILL LOOK
Think how amazing these reclaimed and restored antique woods, with our durable Naked Skin Lacquer finish, will look. Imagine the room you’ll create with the 250 mm-wide, 20mm thick and up to 5000mm-long 2-ply planks. And the stories someone very fortunate will be able to tell about this pine’s Alpine provenance…
A reclaimed floor
The charm of a reclaimed wood floor is hard to define and impossible to replicate. Reclaimed wood holds wonderful records of a past life, from beautiful patinas, rusty nail holes and weather cracks, to the smooth sections which have been corroded by the repeated touch of a thousand hands. The character that reclaimed wood holds is inimitable and its unique history provides a talking point to all who come into contact with it.
