Despite our undoubted passion for timber, and the growing resurgence towards sustainable, natural materials, it is true that most of us don’t really know where or how to buy real wood, especially if our needs are not ‘standard’.

This is where Broadleaf comes in. Established to solve exactly this problem, Broadleaf are accessible real wood specialists with an unrivalled range of floors, doors and accessories, as well as an entirely bespoke service design service for architectural joinery.

Their beautiful showroom, situated in the Courtyard, Montpellier, provide inspiring spaces where you can browse at leisure and talk through your project with their knowledgeable staff. They also have a stunning brochure and comprehensive web site full of images to inspire and clear, simple information to guide you through the basics of the selection process.

They understand real wood, so you do not have to. You make the aesthetic choice, and they provide the expertise and advice to make sure that it is successfully installed into your home. Their involvement begins when the tree is felled, sourcing the carefully selected, sustainable timber that is central to the quality of their products and continues through the design process, into their workshops and machining facilities, combining the best of traditional craftsmanship and modern technology.

With a unique collection of plank and parquet floors including Traditional, Vintage and Contemporary Oak options, as well as a versatile selection of exotic species there is sure to include something to complement your style of property and preferred design scheme as well as most budgets. They are specialists in the use of solid wood over under-floor heating and can successfully solve most installation issues. They can also offer design advice and a range of bespoke finishes.

If you want to make a real entrance, look no further than their hand-built external doors. Choose from a range of classic designs or let their design team create a bespoke door to meet your individual requirements. All doors are made to measure in Oak or paintable hardwood and a complementary design drawing is produced for every external door.

Internal doors are often overlooked, despite the impact they make on an interior scheme. The Broadleaf collection offers quality options for homes of all styles, all of which are available in bespoke sizes - a welcome relief if you have an older property without standard doorways – and as fire doors. And for that really special feature, be it an Oak truss or a complete garden room, a panelled fireplace or a complete library, talk to Broadleaf Design. There is no standard, and each piece is as individual as the tree from which it originates and the home for which it is designed.

So, if you want to bring the warmth and beauty of real wood to your home, make sure that Broadleaf is your first port of call.
