    Reclaimed English Oak Parquet Block

    Solid English Oak as used in the Victorian and Edwardian periods to cover large open spaces in civic, domestic or commercial premises. The blocks come in a spectrum of mellow browns and light cream shades in the sap with worn and darkened patches in the heartwood.The annual growth rings are strongly marked in this quarter sawn batch and show as a glistening flame like pattern through the grain in what are known as Medulary Rays. The grain itself is straight, with a coarse, variegated texture. English Oak is famously hard and resistant to rot and decay. It is at once attractive and hard wearing which makes it suitable for decorative purposes in high-traffic situations such as public rooms, hallways and commercial premises. The cultural and historic associations of the English Oak, including it's status as king of the British woodland, have ensured its use throughout British history in vernacular architecture and joinery from Shakespeare's Globe to Nelson's Victory. These blocks are reclaimed and have a light layer of bitumen on their underside. We encourage customers to call our flooring office for any further information.

    Brunswick lace panel

    Handloom weaving was brought to the Irvine Valley, Scotland, in the late 16th century. The craft of lace making was later introduced to the area in 1876 followed shortly by the invention of the power loom in 1877. Lace and Madras weaving continued to flourish there until the late 1970s. The struggle for companies to compete with the distribution of emerging European and Asian economies had a profound effect on the Scottish textile industry. Fortunately these patterned lace panels continue to be woven in Scotland on some of the last remaining Nottingham lace looms in the world. The manufacturing process is extremely labour intensive; the looms run at a very slow, controlled pace so as to give a high level of quality control. LASSCO has been working closely with the weavers to develop a unique collection of lace panels. These patterns were selected for use in, and especially woven for, the Saloon at Brunswick House, the 1758 Georgian Vauxhall home of the Duke of Brunswick that is now the LASSCO 'flagship'. With authentic Gainsborough patterns appropriately reminiscent of the Vauxhall Gardens style, the lower edges are worked in embroidered scallops. Currently two in stock.
