When the floor tells a story

Thomas Reiner originally worked as a furniture restorer for the Württemberg State Museum in Stuttgart and as a reviewer and consultant for Europe’s preservation of historical monuments. During that time, he fell in love with the charm of antique parquet floors. To follow his passion, he founded his company Antique Parquet to rescue, collect and restore historic parquet, deal board and boarded parquet floorings. One of the most meticulous and uncompromising artisans in his craft, Thomas has worked on significant preservation projects all over Europe and beyond. His floors embellish major palaces and castles like the Vienna Imperial Palace, Schönbrunn Castle and Ludwigsburg Palace and private houses in nearly every major city in Europe.
