An antique floor adds character to any room.
A reclaimed antique floor is a rustic floor crafted from salvaged timbers that were cut and sawn by hand, and used to construct family homes, barns or factories during the 19th century. At Carlisle we strategically procure our antique reclaimed timbers from specific areas of the country to ensure a higher quality. For example the best Antique Oak flooring comes from building throughout the Ohio River Valley because that is where the best Oak grows today. The best place to find high quality Antique Heart Pine is in New England because the best Heart Pine flooring was shipped to the Northeast during the Industrial Revolution.
A Wide Plank Antique floor will retain the original nail holes, stains and knots, giving each floor a sense of warmth and history. Walking on an antique floor, you can feel the connection to the past and to the hard work of the people who settled this land and built things to last.
As one of the leading providers of antique floor products in North America we provide you with a stunning range of antique floor options.
