When we stumbled on images of artist/designer Richard Woods‘ show D.I.Y at the Alan Cristea Gallery  in London, we literally gasped. LOOK at those floors!. They turn out to be Woods’ trademark vibrantly-coloured and exaggerated wood-grain motif.

…deceptively simple in form, these bold images are produced using traditional block-printing techniques and installed as parquetry (inlaying wood in geometric patterns)…

We’re always on the lookout for cool ways to paint our plywood floors, currently a neutral oyster color, when it starts to wear, or when we want to shift our view…

Woods has devised floor patterns based on offcuts in a range of patterns and colors.
