Wood Work

The first thing you’ll notice when you step into Custom & Antique Flooring of Connecticut is warmth. With sunlight streaming in through the storefront’s high windows, the wood samples take on a sun-kissed glow, in hues ranging from honey to deep brown. The second thing you’ll notice? The pleasant smell of wood and varnish that brings to mind a cabin in the woods. Recently opened just off Sound Beach Avenue, the store relocated from North Street in Greenwich. Sales manager Lygia Linardi, a fan of the town’s sense of community, loves the new location.

“People stop by, even if they don’t have a flooring project, to see what the place is about,” she says. The family-owned business specializes in wide-plank and custom flooring options, plus, they boast a few surprises, like furniture built from lumber reclaimed from old barns. If you’re itching to try something bold, make sure you stop in. They’re the only place in Connecticut and New York that offers leather flooring and wall panels.

On my own trip to the store, Linardi was eager to show off a wall panel that’s made up of leather belts, which would add a touch of rock ‘n’ roll to any room.
