We supplied a parquet de Versailles engineered wood floor for this prestigious project in London.
Located on Wellington Street, in the heart of Covent Garden is Penhaligon’s, a renowned perfume house whose story began during Queen Victoria’s reign. The witty and wildly creative William Penhaligon was a Cornish barber who arrived in the vibrant capital during the 1860’s to begin his illustriously scented career. William’s original perfume, Hammam Bouquet, was created in 1872 after William inhaled the sulphurous aromas of his neighbouring Turkish baths. William went on to become barber and perfumer to the Royal Court, cementing the Penhaligon’s brand into the 21st century.
This bespoke Parquet de Versailles floor was specified for Penhaligons’ longest standing boutique at Wellington Street, London. This statement floor certainly matches the grandeur of its surroundings, integrating with the architecture of the building, classic tiling, wall panelling and period furniture that wouldn’t go amiss in an 1870’s apothecary.
To achieve this result for your project we offer two options in our Parquetry collection. Hillstar is crafted from the finest new prime grade European oak and is unfinished. Hermit is also unfinished and is made from nature grade European oak, which is known for its broad range of characteristics. The construction of the Parquet De Versailles panel is 2-ply, 20mm engineered and bonded to 100% Birch Plywood. Both Hillstar and Hermit will allow you to create a look entirely unique to your project.
