antique herringbone...


"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?

Ugh... I used to have a brochure for Exquisite Surfaces from when I worked for a builder. So glorious, but so expensive and out of reach!

I think I've died and gone to heaven and that I need this in my house- so so gorgeous!

What a fantastic idea! I love that they use salvaged wood. There truly is nothing more elegant than a hardwood floor, in my opinion, but it's so hard on the environment! This is a great switch up from bamboo flooring, too. So classy.

It's not fair to be jealous of a floor.

Looks like everyone is loving these floors! If only it wasn't as expensive, but you get what you pay for! I love the herringbone pattern!

The herringbone floors are one of the things I miss most about my Paris apartment! There's just nothing like them. :) Happy new year, Daniella! xo

My dad once reclaimed hardwood floors from a house being knocked down. They actually let him take them free!

This herringbone is just drop-dead gorgeous. Wow!
