Reims Antique Oak

Reims Antique Oak

Floor code: RARE003



Reims is a city rich in medieval and modern history. It was the traditional site of the crowning of the kings of France and where Germany offered an unconditional surrender at the end of World War II.

It is also home to some of the world’s best known champagne producers. Above the plains of Champagne, vast forests provided the wood that this Rare Find came from.

Reims is antique oak that was extracted from outbuildings of an old chateau in Reims. The rich, dark antique oak bears witness to centuries of use. It has now been sympathetically restored while retaining characteristic nail holes, pit saw marks and natural movement.

We’ve taken nothing away from the natural aged patina and time worn edges of these quarter sawn boards so that they can add a quiet confidence to any project they are used in.

We would love you to see our Reims Antique Oak. Book an appointment at one of our Design Centres or call us today on 01925 284495.
