Solid Oak Flooring Compliments Atelier-Ellis Furniture

We are very grateful to Cassandra Ellis of Atelier.Ellis for mentioning us in The Sunday Times recently. Cassandra is a designer, maker and writer and comes from a family of furniture and textile makers.  She firmly believes good design can change lives. Cassandra’s ethos is to make quiet, beautiful, hand-made furniture and paint that helps you tell the story of your home.

We are very proud to have supplied Cassandra with solid oak flooring which features throughout her home.  She chose our rustic grade oak, a rugged oak, with plenty of character and grain patterns within the boards, which also includes filled knots and small splits.

A mixed width floor is laid with wide boards up to 250-300mm. Larger width boards mean fewer joints creating an aesthetically pleasing design.  They become a major feature of the floor and as such should be placed in areas where they are seen. We love the look of our flooring in this property and Cassandra’s stunning design flair, furniture and paint really sets it off.



Made by respected English furniture makers and textile craftspeople Atelier.Ellis’s furniture is exceptionally well made and beautiful in its simplicity.  A great deal of attention is given to both the construction and finishing details.  By understanding fabric as much as frame and form and function the pieces are deeply comfortable and work in both contemporary and traditional environments. The collection is designed to be simple, useful and beautiful.


A fabulous range of calm luminous colours offering a quiet enveloping backdrop for the home.  Cassandra is inspired by the way we live in nature, in cities and society, and her colours truly reflect this.  Available in 38 beautiful tones which work in harmony together offering a generous choice for complete schemes. The colours will soften a contemporary apartment or infuse a traditional home.

Available in Matt Emulsion which is washable and scrubbable, Wood and Metal paint comes in Matt or Eggshell finish. 

In keeping with a commitment to providing the highest quality product Ellis Paints are exclusively hand-mixed to order in London by the renowned paint maker Mylands

Cassandra plans to make her converted Victorian school house into a pied a terre and showroom to showcase her beautiful paint range and furniture.  We highly recommend you visit her website for more inspiration – you won’t be disappointed.
