Forests are places of mystery, folklore and legend – and home to majestic trees that hold a thousand tales. The Silvan story starts in the forests of Britain and Northern France.

Choosing the correct timber for your floor is a key consideration at the beginning of the process. Such is the precision of our service that, should you wish to know later on, we can tell you exactly where the wood comes from.

Our mill has been a sawmill for over 60 years set on the outskirts of the village of Thurlaston in Leicestershire. It has provided employment for local millers for decades and this is still the case today. Many of our skilled team live and work within a two mile radius of the sawmill itself.

We believe in combining the best of modern techniques with practices that have stood the test of time. Whilst this may take a little more time, you can rest assured your finished floor will have beauty and quality that can only be achieved by this personal attention to detail.

At each process the human eye is watching over the floor in terms of quality and to date we still feel this is the best way to ensure the floor meets the client exacting standards.

All our floors are handmade from the finest grades of timber and are sustainably sourced. We use only Veneer grade logs. These trees are all old growth and yield perfect grain structure and colour. This all goes to make for a floor of the finest quality and character.

All the trees we use are hundreds of years old. The history we are priveleged to discover in working with them is a humbling reminder that these magnificent species have stood through so much.
