ITALY 2018

Here are some photos from our recent trip to Italy! We visited our friends at Listone Giordano and had an opportunity to tour their manufacturing facilities and see first hand the process of making these beautiful floors.

To achieve the precision and quality Listone is known for, the facility is a fine balance between state-of-the-art technology and expert flooring craftspeople who diligently inspect every board to ensure the highest of standards are maintained. 

Thank you to our hosts! We are grateful for your hospitality and look forward to visiting again soon!

Natural Genius: Biscuit by Patricia Urquiola

We'd like to place a well deserved spotlight on these brilliant pattered floors from Listone Giordano. Inspired by fabrics, Biscuit is a collection that focuses on rediscovering the decorative power of wood flooring.

Exploring the concepts of softness and femininity, designer Patricia Urquiola redefines the classic rules of what a floor should look like and the traditional laying patterns that have been in place for over a century.

PROTOTYPE FLOATING TREADS

When it comes to wood applications, there's nothing as beautiful as a well crafted set of stairs! Here are some prototype examples of floating treads. These would look so nice against glass siding or just on their own! This particular example was made using a pre-finished floor and highlights an advanced mitre process with polyurethane seaming that would be suitable for residential applications. For high traffic spaces an integrated solid nosing component on the edges would be a good idea. Featured here is Deep Down Taupe and Gris Charmant by Woodlife!

New Armoury Showroom Now Open!!

After five fabulous years in Mount Pleasant we moved our showroom to our new home in the Armoury District of Vancouver! We love our new neighbourhood and are so excited to be a part of this growing architecture and design community. It's such a treat taking Alfie for a walk every day around the seawall and Granville Island!

The inspiration for our new showroom came from the boutique parquet shops of Europe - simple, sophisticated, and functional! Bursting with product options and samples ready to go!

Here are some behind the scene snapshots from our showroom renos! If you're in the neighbourhood come in and say hi!
