Floor code: RARE011
This floor's story
Durham is characterised by its built heritage. Despite the City’s world-famous medieval architecture, few buildings erected before 1650 remain in use today. The majority of Listed historic building were last substantially rebuilt during Georgian Era.
These floors came from a Georgian building near Durham University. Unlike some of our other Rare Finds, where we have restored the timber in order to make floors, this Pine has been pulled from existing wood flooring. Each long plank has been carefully extracted and fully restored, with extra care being taken not to disturb the intricate details left by centuries of history. Packed with a charming heritage, the Pine would perfectly compliment period restorations and contemporary interior projects, whether used as flooring, wall cladding or in furniture creation.
To celebrate these boards we recommend that they are not fitted too ‘perfectly’.
We would love you to see our Rare Finds. Book an appointment at one of our Design Centres or call us today on 01925 284495
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.
