About this product

Our French Estate Oak floor has always been one of our most prized Rare Finds, now available in a new pattern design, Parquet de Versailles.

French Estate Organic Oak has been restored by our highly skilled artisans to a Grade 1 level using the finest genuinely sourced Antique French Oak. Throughout the entire restoration experience, the original patina and historical features remain intact, ready to be selected by the select few who appreciate its true magic.

The surface is burnished to help accentuate the natural patina, which can only be found in woods of this age – never manmade or replicated. Humble. The result is stunning, feeling natural and luxurious at the same time.

This is a characterful Antique Oak with a selection of pit-sawn, adzed, and circular-sawn surfaces in random widths and lengths for the most traditional and original look. Due to the impermanent nature of reclaimed wood, however, this floor will not be available for long. Besides our new Parquet de Versailles design, this floor is also available as random-width planks.

Architectural details are available for our antique and reclaimed floors, but the ultimate consideration is required to ensure these best complement your floor.

Architectural Details

Add the perfect finishing touch with our architectural details all of which have been specifically designed and manufactured for Ted Todd. 

Mouldings, trims, beads, skirting, architrave, treads and risers are architectural details that are an essential part of every flooring installation. Special consideration should be given to floor-to-floor transitions, floor-to-wall design, and how floors progress across multiple levels.

Architectural details give spaces cohesion and create a harmonious flow, softening connections and hiding delineations. All of these  details are most effective when they work seamlessly with your floor. This is why our floors and architectural details are created by us, to complement each other.


Installing a wood floor is no mean feat and we always recommend it is undertaken by a professional flooring fitter.

Everything you need to know to install and care for your floor can be found in our installation guides, which you can find here.

Care and maintenance

To prevent any potential harm to your floors, it’s crucial to choose the right cleaning products. Unlike many generic floor cleaners that contain solvents or bleach, which can lead to floor damage and discolouration, our Ted Todd specialist cleaning products have been designed to protect and promote floor longevity.

  • If your floor has a lacquered or hardened oil finish, use Care System 1.
  • If your floor has a natural oil or hardwax oil finish, use Care System 2.
  • If your floor is white and has a lacquered or hardened oil finish, use Care System 3.
  • If your floor is white and has a natural oil or hardwax oil finish, use Care System 4.
