I was at the studio today looking at how I was going to replace the horrible blue carpet with something else. When I pulled back a corner I discovered that there is a parquet floor underneath the carpet. And it looks in pretty good condition too. All I need to know now is how to clean/sand/polish/seal/restore it.
I really hope this is possible as it would be fantastic to have a proper parquet floor which can be used as a feature in photographs.
