Flooring is the base on which everything else rests. It is home to the furniture, it intersects with the walls and it influences the perception of light.
To achieve a vintage effect maintaining all the charm of antique parquet, the exterior part of the original planks is left on view, that which is known as first patina, the surfaces that tell the story of all those who have walked on the wood in the past. To enhance these signs of times past which give recovered wood its unique aesthetic, the surfaces are not re-finished but merely cleaned.
If this vintage effect is not in harmony with the style of the rest of the space, VintageWood also offers second patina flooring when the underneath part of the original planks is on view as this has no sign of previous footfall and can be given a wide range of finishes. In both situations the recovered wood is then paired with a multilayer base of birch. It is possible to choose large formats alternating with joint features, chiselling in darker shades to display geometric motifs, inlays interspersed with other materials such as weathering steel, stone or brickwork.
