The Art Of New Beginnings
Our one of a kind meticulously crafted floors & custom millwork represent the antithesis of mass production & today's mass fastness of things. We promise to ethically beautify, inspire, craft, make & install with the Soul of a tree in mind.
We are purveyors of sustainable living. We’ll plant one tree for every 10m2 of wood flooring sold.
With the belief that every surface is an artistic expression that transports and inspires, we bring together practical and technical know-how with a sincere appreciation for the craft. Timelessness takes time.
Staircases & Joinery
We are often specified to colour-match stair treads and risers to our wood floors, whether straight cut or curved, all stair pieces are templated on-site before manufacturing for maximum precision.
Antique Wood Flooring
Many of the valuable pieces in our collections have acquired a special significance through the perfection of imperfections and the ageing of patinas - the passage of time is what we do.
New Wood Flooring
Today’s consumers are more conscious than ever before. Consumers now demand operational transparency and a complete understanding of a product’s supply chain and raw materials.

Slow & Sensorial
Our organic formulas react with the tannic acid that exists naturally within the timber, allowing us to create a time capsule effect that speeds up the natural ageing process. As the wood ages and matures, a unique and deep character develops and unique shades, colours, textures and patinas emerge.
Back in 2001, reclaiming beams and floorboards from Victorian Cotton mills in Greater Manchester would eventually lead to the formation of RFC. From these small beginnings and the birthplace of the Industrial Revolution to the creative hub of Clerkenwell, then to the design district of Chelsea in London, this family-run business has expanded to include international clients from the USA, Middle East and Asia. As of 2022, RFC has over eight years of experience in the USA and over 20 years in the UK.
An innovative range of products incorporates both antique and contemporary design concepts blending rich history, new technology and an unrestricted approach to creativity and craft. After all, unlike every other building material, we all know that wood sometimes has a mind of its own.
We can create bespoke products and designs for domestic clients or businesses inspired by our client’s vision. All platforms, including floor planks, engineered boards, extra long floorboards, parquetry & parquet to your very own 100% bespoke solutions, are carefully crafted by us. Unlike other companies, we are not just resellers of imported products but design pioneers and innovators with hands-on experience.
The natural progression from reclaimed timbers to tailor-made new wood floorboards expanded the RFC brand to include authentically reclaimed, replica reclaimed and specialised new wood floorboards and cladding. An innovative range of patinas incorporates both antique and contemporary design concepts blending rich history, new technology and an unrestricted approach to creativity and craft.
Our Antique Reclaimed Wood Flooring, Harvested Solid Wood Flooring & Engineered Wood Flooring collections have been developed with the utmost environmental care. We encourage anybody to look closer at our products and philosophy.
