This floor's story
The inevitable first reaction of anyone meeting Ruskin for the first time is to caress the wood, marvel at its rich, dark patina and enjoy the gentle undulations hinting at centuries of history…
UNAVOIDABLE EMOTIONAL, VISCERAL CONNECTION
It’s hard not to connect emotionally – viscerally even – with this exceptional 400-year-old French oak and its history… Our most experienced craftspeople certainly connected when we presented this scarce resource to them, dared them to waste a fragment of such treasured material and set them to work.
A 400-YEAR-OLD TREASURE MEETS MODERN ENGINEERING
The result, now crafted lovingly into stunning 377mm x 85mm x 20mm herringbone with gorgeous hand-rolled edge detailing, is a masterpiece of history, design potential, sense-assailing beauty and practicality…
Practicality? Of course, because our artisans wood engineering skills enabled them to match history to modern design benefits. The result is that you can enjoy this 2-ply engineered floor with underfloor heating. It’s another practical detail alongside skilfully engineered tongue-and-groove (for easy-laying and long-term stability) and an extra-thick 6mm wear layer.
