Project Description

The collection of French, Italian and European classics, which reconstruct the Renaissance floors, includes production classified as follows:

Versailles, large and small Chantilly, Grenobles, Stella or Fontenbleau, La Rochelle and Caserta.

These European classics are made entirely with mortise and tenon joints and fitted with wooden nails.

We reconstruct them with utmost care and with respect to the original, the way a skillful legacy is preserved.

It is the joining of patterns and of the forces that let the flooring move freely without changing the external dimensions that allow us to combine the stripes together.

Our factory is specialized in the construction of all types of historical flooring, both in stripes less than 14 mm thick and in 22mm and 30mm thickness.

Part of the classics is also the French Chevron with a 45-degree angle, as well as the Hungarian Point at an angle of 60 degrees. The floorboards play with light in the alternation of right and left strips.

Part of this is the maxi-chevron with double the measurements.

The Renaissance plank is characterized by its 5 or 6 widths and lengths (Louis XVI).

As far as the structure of the wood in the curves of the lines molded by the years is concerned – we preserve it by alternating the strips in the opposite direction joined by oblique lines as is the natural direction of a board cut from a trunk.

This way of assembling in a direction opposite to the fibers of the two boards, creates a natural balance of the wooden floor, enriching it with harmony and stability.

The revival of the Renaissance constructions is part of our production interests.

Historically, these floors have spread from France to all European palaces and after that  – to the houses of the nobility and the notability of the period.

From the same period date the classic Chevron and the Hungarian Point as inlays like Sword, Cannes.

Our marquetry compositions are rigorously made only by hand, both by saw-cutting the stripes and by breaking the supporting wood, and exhibit those little points of disjunction that enhance the authenticity of execution.

Each piece is first worked by hand, with planing and subsequent satin polish, followed by the oxidation reaction for color definition. After that, the whole is assembled.

The same logic applies to the planing, in order to lend form to a material that lives in its natural shape – a form that, at the same time, is random in uniqueness and beauty.

The steps consume the wood as if to give softness to movement, and then the hand of our staff recreates the emotions of the soft and harmonious form that characterises the natural wood.

Our product is not a carpentry product but a product of art that comes from the need for truth, in order to imagine and to dream.
