British perfume house Penhaligon’s has been making distinctive scents since 1870. When it came to refurbishing their Wellington Street store, they wanted a look that reflected the company’s distinctive 149-year heritage.
ABOUT THE FLOOR
The floor specified for this project was Woodworks by Ted Todd’s Hillstar, a classic Parquet de Versailles design, made of prime grade European Oak to give a clean, elegant feel. The panels are engineered with furniture grade birch plywood for stability and all the material used to make this floor is FSCTM certified.
WHAT THE FLOOR ACHIEVES
The Parquet de Versailles panels are a key design element in this project, conveying a traditional feel to the interior, while at the same
time appearing modern and sophisticated. The natural Oak tones in the floor are warm and welcoming, making a visit to this store a memorable experience. Overall the floor feels natural and effortless. All the elements connect from panel to panel, this works in all directions and is a key feature of all Woodworks Parquet de Versailles floors. Each panel component is carefully crafted so that the focus is on the pattern running through the panels rather than the frame.
A CLOSER LOOK…
From the sizing of each component to the quality of materials we use, to how we hand-cut every element, prepare them and polish them, we attend to every detail in our own unique way. All of our finishes are air-dried and this slow curing approach form finishes that are durable and natural. They take more time in every respect, but the result is more than worth it.
We work hard to deliver the highest quality at the best possible price, so please talk to us if you’re specifying Parquet de Versailles panels.
