Floor code: ANTIQ018
This floors story
Is this the epitome of sophisticated, town-house-worn antique oak? For sure, it’s become another of our artisans’ favourites since we tracked down supplies of the indulgently dark, heavily patinated, antique floor. We can only guess at the history it must have seen since the seventeenth-century…
THE PLEASURE AWAITING THIS FLOOR’S NEXT CUSTODIANS
Our craftsmen immediately bonded closely with Fortnum; put huge amounts of time and skill into making the most of the massive potential in this dark, almost ‘chocolatey’, find. We couldn’t keep them away, but why would we when we know how much pleasure their craftsmanship will mean to the next privileged custodians of this treasure.
TIMEWORN AND UNDULATING
Emotional appeal meets practicality and solid engineering in Fortnum’s 2-ply planks with random widths, lengths to 2,400mm and reassuring 20mm thickness (including a 6mm wear layer). The surface, unsurprisingly, is timeworn and gently undulating, with the addition of hand-rolled edges and our easy-install end-matched tongue-and-groove.
