the market and what is best suited to each customer;

Solid Wood Herringbone

Well there’s
no doubt about it Solid Wood Herringbone Flooring is the cream of the
crop.  This floor comes unfinished and is
fitted and finished to your room’s individual specifications, leaving you with
a Bespoke Herringbone Floor. 

Let’s say

sanded, stained and finished to suit the look you want!  The result is a work of art, as in the picture

Engineered Wood Herringbone

Wood Herringbone is a fantastic compromise, as it gives you all the beauty of
