All Pierre Cronje solid wood flooring and architectural fittings are custom made with the distinction of quality to suit the most refined tastes. The integrity of their design, with the combination of the best construction and use of solid timber are the distinguishing characteristics of all Pierre Cronje creations. The design and manufacture of their projects are artistically inspired, incorporating the natural character of solid wood. 

Central to their philosophy is a commitment to craftsmanship – handcrafted, intensive work marked by quality and distinction. This belief relies on their artisans being dedicated not only to their materials and workmanship, but also in continuing a tradition which began over three decades ago.

Luxurious Hardwood Flooring

Wood is a natural material and will, from one tree to another, vary in character, colour and texture. Every timber floor is unique. Your floor will age and mature with time, enhancing the overall appearance. Natural hairline cracks and some timber movement may occur. Colour variation may occur depending on the exposure to light and surrounding atmospheric moisture. Every timber floor follows a timeous manufacturing and installation process to ensure that no shortcuts are taken, and that the floor will last for many decades, if not centuries.

Herringbone

Herringbone floors have a rich history as a traditional floor pattern in Europe, and in modern times, the popularity and prestige of herringbone can be seen around the world. The beauty of herringbone is that it can be installed in several configurations to cater for client’s individual requirements. You also have the option of a border or no border with your configuration/design.

Pattern

Wood floors have far more potential for variety than you may have thought. Broken into smaller pieces, they are very intricate and even in their longboard form, variations that are worth noting exist. Custom pattern floors are very exclusive and will add creativity to your space.

Structural Integrity

The structural integrity of all Pierre Cronje installations carries a lifetime guarantee and every installation receives a reference on completion. Pierre’s signature is imprinted on a designated floorboard, so as to ensure the authentic origin of your purchase. All their floorboards are hand-finished and are 220mm wide by 22mm thick in varying lengths. If you required wider boards you are welcome to discuss this with them.

Striking Ceilings for a Contemporary Accent

Ceilings, representing the largest exposed interior finish in a building, are a key contributor towards defining the aesthetics, acoustics and lighting performance of building interiors. Countless generations of building designers have turned to solid wood to bring richness and texture to their creations. No other material can provide the range of colours and patterns of this most natural building material. It can make a structure simple and elegant, sleek and modern, classic yet cool – skilfully used it can create exactly the ambience needed to make any space special.
