French leached grey parquetry finish

When a piece of timber is left exposed to the weather for several months, it gets that inimitable driftwood colour that is usually seen on well seasoned outdoor furniture.

At the Good House this is no longer an inimitable finish, thanks to a new dual coating process that is both durable and simple to apply on site. It is all the rage at the moment in France, and it's easy to understand why when looking at this Versailles panel:

 Unlike most similar finishes that are quite opaque, our leached grey finish is fully transparent and leaves the striking features and grain of French oak exposed and even enhanced. It is not a thin surface coating that will wear off quickly, but a deeply ingrained finish that can be re-done when required on a heavy traffic area.

A light grey driftwood colour suits most types of design, from traditional country look (reminiscent of Provence benchmark lime wash) to contemporary Scandinavian or minimalist style. Talk to us in regards to installation and possible combinations.
