We don’t deal with artificial materials and we have no need for artifice.
We make floors of real substance. At Trunk Floor our ethos is very simple, we prepare and treat pure, raw materials to give them a new life within your home. Our work pays tribute to the elemental nature of noble Oak and solid Stone. We elevate, we don’t embellish.

Ours is a generational business based in Ireland, with expertise honed over decades.
We are artisanal in our approach but manufacturers in scale. Every floor is made to measure in the truest sense, unique and informed by our creative direction. Each one is an homage to the resilience and beauty of its composition and is made to last lifetimes. Trunk Floor – The natural world at your feet

To create floors of real substance we go to the ends of the earth, not just to source the best natural materials but also to seek out those individuals who best understand them and the unique challenges they pose. The felling of a tree or blasting of a block represents the crucial first step in a time-consuming and meticulous process that culminates with the finishing process undertaken at our Irish workshop. Everything that we do at Trunk Floor is informed by the character and texture of the Irish countryside around us, by the stern beauty and brooding nobility of our unspoilt landscape. The pure wash of river and stream over solid hillside stone, the hue of the light through stands of strong, upright trees.

We choose the raw materials of your Trunk Floor for their defining traits, for the properties man has valued for centuries.

We choose the raw materials of your Trunk Floor for their defining traits, for the properties man has valued for centuries. For wood floors we favour the noble European Oak, characterised by its refined grain, colour consistency and stability. In natural stone we work predominantly with Limestone and Marble. Delved from the earth, we don’t believe that they can be improved upon, we merely grant them new purpose. Timeless Limestone bears witness to the imprint of history itself, while Marble fascinates with its breathtaking kaleidoscope of colour. In wood or stone, our floors are rooted in nature and grounded in beauty.

Our respect for the honesty and integrity of wood and stone means that our work begins and ends with attention to detail. Time, care and skill don’t allow for shortcuts. Our craftsmen honour the new life of living materials with the work of hardened hands and knowledge that spans generations. In measuring, planing, brushing and smoking, the standards that we meet at Trunk Floor are our own. Our process coaxes copper or charcoal tones naturally by activating the tannins deep within the oak.

We look to modern technology to complement our process in the service of efficiency, that is all. In truth, each one of our unique floors is the product of years of curation. The patina and natural aging of these beautiful, tactile surfaces make an appeal to the senses. They work themselves gently into the space to settle over time into the fabric of the building in which they are laid.

For us, the form of your Trunk Floor is all about proportion. It is a matter of context that other makers/competitors often fail to take into account. We believe that there is always a right answer to the question of ‘what works best?’ One size will never fit all. It is about translating the unique characteristics of our natural materials into the design language of your home. It is an holistic approach. We want your beautiful hand crafted Trunk Floor to properly inhabit its space, to be a foundational element, rather than an addition. From the sizing of our herringbone blocks to the precision we take with the width of our noble oak planks, our approach to fit and form is always a considered one.

Our London and San Francisco stores are temporarily closed and Dublin open by appointment only.

Our sales and design teams are working remotely and are just an email away: info@trunkfloor.com. Our workshops continue to operate whilst introducing a stringent hygiene protocol, including professional social distancing. We are still able to send our material samples or anything else you may need for current or upcoming projects.

During this challenging time we are thinking of you and hope that you and your loved ones stay safe and healthy.

We look forward to welcoming you to our showrooms again soon.
