"Unlike most salvaged wood on the market, which is cut from old wood construction beams, Exquisite Surfaces' antique French oak is pulled from actual wood flooring installed in French homes and farmhouses. From large country house boards to more refined Parisian small planks, each piece is carefully selected and is typically re-tongued, re-grooved or planed to ease the installation process."
Recently I came across the company Exquisite Surfaces while flipping through an old mag, and I am in love with their "Antique Herringbone" wood flooring. Isn't it just gorgeous? The perfect pattern, chic and classic... put together with craftsmanship and charm – something seriously lacking in home construction these days, don't you think?
