    This is a detail of the marquetry floor in the Crimson Drawing Room at Windsor Castle which, along with the decorative parquet in the Green Drawing Room and the parquet and boards in the Grand Reception Room, David Gunton and his team of craftsmen recreated and restored after the great fire.

    For this work we were awarded;

    The Worshipful Company of Carpenters Special Award in Recognition of Outstanding Achievement in the Restoration, Re-Creation, New Design and Quality of Craftsmanship at Windsor Castle.

     

     

     

    When looking at this photo or being in the room, it is hard to credit that all that you see was utterly destroyed in 1992.

     

    This photo shows much of the floor we recreated.

     

     

     

    This picture on the right shows a part of the floor we restored and substantially recreated in the Grand Reception Room
