bella it was bargain stuff from kimpton. Do get samples before you buy. It was laid after the suite because we only tarted up the room and kept the suite as it is fine. You do need a fitter who knows what they are doing as the sub surface must be perfect (level and smooth, we had ours put over nasty old tiles and they skimmed them with latex first) and the joins are quite technique sensitive.
The samples arrived and they are great. The trickiest thing is we have an E15 table bigfoot. With different chairs to the pic. But it's about 3m quite substantial bit of wood. The floor can't look too bad with this.
Anyway, also remembered that I loved this ultra glossy parquet. I love light so if the floor bounces light then great.
