With the floors in the Pratovecchio range, made from recovered wood, boards and beams from ancient homes are given another chance to shine, and an opportunity to pass on powerful emotions. Oak, elm, pine and poplar timber is recovered and expertly transformed. The products in this range are in three-layer planks: one hardwood layer, a wooden support layer and wooden counter balancing for stability. The craftsmen at Idee & Parquet choose their materials with care and work with artistic flair to restore the wood, using ancient manual woodworking techniques: brushing, rounding, distressing and hand bevelling. Planks from a bygone era are therefore reborn, ready to enhance new, highly atmospheric environments. The floors in the Pratovecchio range are filled and waxed by hand, with bevelling on the two long sides. They are simple and quick to install: they can be glued, laid floating or nailed to concrete screed or pre-existing floors, provided they are suitable for supporting this type of flooring.
