design et al are delighted to announce that Weldon have been shortlisted in the Flooring category of The International Product Design Awards 2015
Weldon recently worked with the Leconfield Property Group on this stunning project in central London. The brief from their interior design team included specifications for flooring which would compliment a Grade 2 listed building and look like the floors had always been there. Weldon were commissioned to design and install hand made floors to the principal reception areas in the property. Sourcing the finest quarter sawn, first grade reserve French oak was critical in the production of the giant herringbone parquet. The development of the product is particularly interesting because of its uniqueness. All components were individually hand crafted in their workshops, the edges rolled and surfaces hand sanded with slight undulation in order to replicate the natural movement and texture of an ageing floor. Work involved the painstaking application of shellac finishes according to tradition techniques to each and every piece. This antiquing patination process was undertaken in Weldons Nottinghamshire workshops before being delivered to London for fitting.
