Valentino’s catwalk

This morning I received an email of the company QUERCUS.

This French company is a maker of high-quality handmade wood floors.

They work in the tradition of the French and Italian woodmakers of the 17th and 18th century.

I discovered this company at the Maison & Objet exhibition in Paris this year.  And I can tell you that their work is beautiful!

So in the email the company QUERCUS was proud to announce that they had delivered the parquet floor for the catwalk at the fashion show of Valentino. Fashion week in Paris, 2 weeks ago!!!! Isn’t that fantastic?!


These first 5 images I got emailed from Quercus this morning.
