Leeds-based flooring retailer, Stories Flooring, has recently helped to transform one of the oldest pubs in London.

The Footman, based in Mayfair, underwent a major renovation before it welcomed guests back into its establishment. The team wanted to modernise the pub during lockdown, while maintaining its original charm. To achieve this, they worked alongside renowned suppliers and designers, including Stories Flooring.

The pub was originally known as The Running Horse, built in 1749. It catered to the footmen who worked within Mayfair households. Today, it retains its rustic, luxurious charm while providing a modern, exquisite menu.

Each zone within the establishment was given its own unique style during its renovations. Eating and drinking areas were elegantly upgraded, while the upper floors provide a true VIP experience. The team wanted to ensure the best quality materials were used to breathe new life into the space.

To achieve a luxurious and elegant look throughout, the Stories Flooring Herringbone Engineered Oak floor was chosen. Offered exclusively by Stories Flooring, this engineered wood parquet floor blends modern appeal with traditional elegance.

Made with three layers of cross-grain wood, the Herringbone engineered oak floor is suitable for high-traffic areas. It can also be installed in areas prone to spillage thanks to its natural water-resistant qualities. Sold with an impressive manufacturer’s warranty, this practical and durable floor is ideal for commercial settings.

Parquet style floors are some of the most luxurious on the market. Once only available to the rich and famous, today they are much more widely available. Adding traditional character into the space, the Stories Herringbone engineered oak floor was a great choice for maintaining the elegant ambience within The Footman.

Stories Flooring offers one of the largest collections of engineered wood flooring at discounted prices in the UK. Based in Leeds, West Yorkshire, the brand provides a range of exclusive and top-branded floors at up to 65% off RRP. A Kahrs Platinum reseller, it is also known for its huge choice of free samples and expert advice.
