The inspiring restoration work of architect Bernard De Clerck with reclaimed wood floorboards supplier, Corvelyn.
The old planks in this kitchen are from a warehouse in France and have a width of up to 50 cm (over 19 1/2 inches.)–Corvelyn (new & reclaimed wood floors)
The wide planks have the unusual characteristic of being tapered; the original craftsman wanted to keep the planks as wide as possible, so followed the natural tapering of the trunk when he cut the wood. –Corvelyn (new & reclaimed wood floors)

The convector gratings are by Corvelyn, made to measure with the same wood as the plank floor.

So much to admire. I’ll be sharing more from both Bernard De Clerck and Corvelyn in the weeks to come.

200 year-old pine barnwood from old Swiss sheds with plank widths of 40 cm and wider.
The planks are placed irregularly with their heads in one line as they are tapered (the shape of the tree.)
