Waddesdon Manor, a French Renaissance-style château was opened to the public in 1959, having been built by Baron Ferdinand de Rothschild between 1874 and 1885 to display his collection of arts and to entertain. The Manor now welcomes hundreds of thousands of visitors every year.
Celebrating 60 years of Waddesdon in 2019, much work has been carried out behind the scenes over the years to restore Waddesdon to its former glory. Recently, the Manor Shop underwent a renovation, as did the bar area of the Five Arrows, Waddesdon’s boutique hotel which sits at the entry gates. As with any heritage site, careful conservation practices were no doubt observed.
For the Manor Shop renovation, the client chose Ted Todd Husk, a 15mm engineered wood flooring available in herringbone and plank designs. This Nature grade floor is 100% FCS certified, with smoky oak tones and an undulating surface full of surprises every board is unique. It was fitted to be sympathetic to the aesthetics of this listed building and to match the high standards of the estate, it was supplied and expertly installed by one of our retail partners – M J Harris Flooring.
