European Oak Flooring with a Friendly Price Tag

At Chateau Domingue, we have spent many years curating the very best selection of both newly-quarried and reclaimed stone for our store.  Alongside this effort, we have located hundreds of lots of 18th c. French oak and specialty reclaimed wood flooring options for our clients.

We are now pleased to present our carefully edited selection of newly-planked European oak.  This collection offers authentic, high quality oak with a friendly price tag.  It is also available in different widths and patterns including popular herringbones and parquets.

Ask us about matte finishes that last for years and special color options – the sky is the limit!

We were thrilled to welcome Martha Stewart to our showroom in Houston over Super Bowl Weekend.  We share Martha’s love of all things lifestyle and home, and naturally we loved showing her all that our companies have to offer!  Martha was incredibly kind to write a blog about her visit to CD, which you can check out at the link below.

Read Martha’s blog about CD here!

Over the past five years, we have founded three sister businesses that further our vision to offer our clients the very best curated products that cannot be found anywhere else.  Domingue Architectural Finishes exclusively sells the same all-natural lime and mineral based plasters and paints made famous in the projects of Axel Vervoordt.  Atelier Domingue manufactures low-profile European inspired steel windows and doors, and Maison Domingue manufactures bespoke doors of reclaimed French oak and pine.  We had fun showing Martha all of our lines at the showroom, and welcome all of our followers to visit us soon!

We’re Loving This…Collection de Boucherie

Over the years, some of our favorite items originally decorated or served functional purposes in French boucheries and Italian macellerias. Zinc animal heads indicated the type of meat for sale, while marble-topped tables kept the product cool.

This iron sign originally hung in an Italian butcher’s shop in the northern Piedmont region of Italy at the turn of the 20th century. Imagine it accenting a grand kitchen or dining area.

We’re Loving This…18th Century Porte Tiercé

This 18th c. Porte Tiercé originally guarded the entrance to a courtyard in the heart of Beynac-et-Cazenac, a Village in the Dordogne Region of France.

The back of this monumental piece shows exquisite craftsmanship in both function and form. The hand-hammered hardware would have protected the residence while also serving as a focal point of the courtyard.

A Greenwich Dream Home

Chic in dress and poised in presence, designer Emma Jane Pilkington’s Connecticut house is no exception to her unparalleled taste.

Raised in Greenwich, CT, an adolescent Pilkington told herself she would never move back to the quaint area after experiencing the excitement of Chicago and Paris during college, and then New York City where she settled during the 1990s. After falling in love and marrying financier Todd Goergen, also raised in Greenwich, the couple came full circle and purchased a Norman-style house in their hometown.

After an extensive remodel by the talented architects at Ike Kligerman Barkley, this month’s Elle Decor explores the couple’s European-inspired abode – light-filled rooms, antiques mixed with modern, and exquisite flooring abound:
