In this sitting room we re introduced period features that had been removed by the previous owner such as, panelling and dado rails, picture rails and a ceiling rose. Creating an aesthetic that was more true to the original design of the house.
The same client also designed this floor herself, a style known as Parquet. This style of flooring first became popular in the 17th centaury and was favorited as a good alternative to marble for the next several centuries. The boom in textile production in the 1930’s meant that carpet soon over took it as the flooring de jour and many parquets were covered or destroyed. We are thrilled this style is making a resurgence back into homes today.
