This floor's story
We all know the appeal of chevron parquet floors, how they first gained popularity during France’s pre-Revolution ancien régime, and how they give floors a delightful structure and pleasing symmetry…
WE’VE SKILFULLY RETAINED THE MAGIC
We can only guess at the tales this genuine seventeenth-century antique oak would tell, if it could. And the history it’s seen over the centuries. The spirit of those who’ve trodden these town-house boards is part of the magic our artisans retained during the restoration process. And while painstakingly hand rolling its edges, applying Hardwax Oil to its gentle undulations and burnish it relentlessly.
SCARCE OAK MEETS FINE-TUNED CRAFT SKILLS
In Fortnum, scarce oak met the skills of our top craftspeople as they hand-worked it – then engineered modern enhancements such as loose-tongued tongue-and-groove and a generous 6mm wear layer.
Discover the potential handcrafted into each 595mm x 85mm x 20mm chevron – it’s one of the best formats for showing off our proprietary technique for marrying reclaimed and antique wood with modern engineered wood floors. See samples, then unleash your creativity to create an inspired interior space…
