Old parquet floor borders for restoration in New York city residence

Some time ago one customer requested the reproduction of a parquet border to be used in the recreation of an old floor in a New York city residence. The border to be reproduced was a well known pattern. Attached are two images showing the pattern but also the degree of deterioration the flooring was in at that date.
Unfortunately there are a lot of this kind of works on which the time-effect and the lack of care are devastating.

  1. Sometimes these things make your hard floor ugly, you always have to take care of your hard wood floor. Do you mind if we quote/reference you sometime? We'll be re-blogging wood floor restoration info fairly regularly.

  2. We have this exact pattern in our house. Do you know the approximate year this pattern was being used? Our house was built in 1859 so we are trying to determine if the floors were original or not.
