Since thinking about flooring has taken up 30% of my brain activity this past month, this will probably be my last post on anything wood/floor related for this year! Whilst after careful consideration we went for classic honey coloured Oak floorboards I know I will always wish we had been a bit more adventurous.
I have always loved the chevron patterning of classic wood parquet floors so these tables, headboards and chopping boards made of salvaged flooring by Brooklyn based wood-worker Ariele Alasko really sung to me. She creates magic with wood and her online store carries one of a kind headboards hand built from reclaimed wood salvaged from Brooklyn buildings and cheeseboards made from salvaged antique flooring. I think she also makes wall panels as art pieces – i would just love one propped up on a shelf with other art.
