This is a brown Oak floor with a cross banded Satinwood border
with Wenge detail lines.
The house, in the most fashionable district of London, is the 'pied
a terre' of the Chairman of one of the UK's largest and most prestigious
companies. He had intended to have a decorative panel floor. However,
the space was awkward and did not happily accommodate such a design
along with the curved staircase foot and an essential entrance mat.
The boards were designed to be of the same length, brick laid, and
subtly decorated with the apparently simple but gleaming golden
satinwood border. It is simple and elegant, yet sophisticated and
a perfect foil for the furniture, ornaments and pictures.
