Create A Vintage English Look With Aged And Antique Wood Flooring – New In At Urbane Living
Wood flooring and interiors retailer Urbane Living is pleased to now be able to offer aged and antique wood flooring – for a new look with a vintage-style twist.
London (I-Newswire) August 17, 2012 - The latest stock in at Urbane Living offers homeowners the chance to get that popular shabby chic look in their home – the aged and antique wood flooring is hand-finished to give the timber the stylishly weathered and old-time look which is so popular at the moment.
Creating a distressed and aged appearance in wood flooring is time-consuming and requires skill – luckily Urbane Living has saved homeowners the trouble. A unique combination of pigmented finishes and wax oils is used to create colours that look inviting and natural.
Each plank is handcrafted by experienced artisans, using meticulous and varied techniques, such as worm holes, hand scraping, French polishing, rough sawing, tumbling and even the use of heavy chains. This means that each and every floor has an individual appearance, rather than looking mass-produced. Custom orders are also available, allowing customers to choose scraping and bevelling finishes to fit their taste and décor.
Each of the products in the range has been named after an English village, such as Aldbury, Ashridge, Chipperfield, Denham, Egham and Latimer, adding to the charm of the collection.
A key benefit of the antique and aged wood flooring is that it is very easy to care for – there is no need to apply an extra layer of oil once the flooring has been installed and the planks are suitable for high-traffic areas. The planks are available as solid or engineered flooring (15mm or 21mm), and a variety of different widths and grades are on offer to suit various budgets – the widest plank available is 260mm, tapping into another hot interiors trend for wide wood flooring.
Adam Robertson, co-founder of Urbane Living, commented: “The vintage look has never been bigger in both fashion and interiors. Our aged and antique wood flooring allows anyone to effortlessly and affordably create the shabby chic look in their home.”
Price: From £92.92 inc. VAT
