Private residence, Earl’s Court
Working alongside the client and interior designer, we were asked to create leather flooring for the media room and office in a London apartment. With natural acoustic qualities, leather made the perfect material for use with the client’s cinema and audio equipment.
A 3mm thick vegetable-tanned shoulder leather was selected for the project. Set out in a grid format, cut leather panels were then bonded to a ply flooring substrate, which was laid with a tongue-and-groove fitting system. Extremely resilient, the floor simply requires an annual wax to keep its lustre, and will darken and patinate over time.
