Specialist in antique floors and fireplaces
From the start our company specializes in antique floors with character; such as old tiles, hard stone, marble and wooden floors. We sort these carefully by material, colour, age and quality. In our workshop, our stone workers ensure that the antique stone floors are ground, cleaned and sawn to the correct size. Our carpenter ensures that the lots of wooden floorboards are prepared and usable.
In addition to old floors, we have a collection of more than three hundred antique fireplaces in all kinds of styles, materials and sizes such as; robust sandstone fireplaces or monumental castle fireplaces and elegant or sleek marble fireplaces. If there are any imperfections, our restorer will professionally correct them, after which he will set up the fireplaces in our showroom.
We can call ourselves with right a specialist in antique floors and fireplaces.
Unique interior objects
Our range has expanded considerably over time, as a result we now have a large collection of special interior objects such as; antique mirrors, chandeliers, design furniture and sanitary facilities. Our buyers travel throughout Europe to find that one vintage piece of furniture, that antique chandelier or that special mirror. One of our special products are our Dutch Walltiles the so called “Witjes”. We make these ourselves, by hand, in eighteenth-century manner.
Sustainability and reclamation
In addition to exclusivity, we are focused on sustainability. We contribute to the circular design of interiors and gardens because we work with reclaimed materials. In addition, we ensure that materials that no longer have a function in their original state are still being used. We transform the remains of floor parts or parts of architectural ornaments into a special interior object; such as a mirror, a lamp or a table. In this way we reuse every part of the material that comes to us.
