About the Project

Designed in Spanish-American style, Boomerang (circa 1926) is a heritage-listed historic home in the Sydney suburb of Elizabeth Bay. It is regarded as the oldest and finest example of Spanish Mission style art deco architecture in Australia, and was featured in the Tom Cruise film, Mission: Impossible II as a Spanish mansion in Seville, Spain. The floors on the ground level are limestone paved and in the dining room, former library, central lobby and upstairs bedrooms there is high quality timber parquetry of English oak with black ebony and American walnut borders.

LOCATION: Boomerang House, Elizabeth Bay NSW 2011

The heritage listed parquetry floor was water damaged in 2016. We were asked to restore it to be perfectly identical to the original, which featured a border of six hardwood species in lines of differing coloured wood. The overall cuts involved over 120 mitre joints without any gaps, all precision cut on site. This also included some mixing of stains and colour matching onsite, to achieve a near perfect match in installation, and finish. We completed the works with compliments from the owners who appreciated the care and attention to detail.

About the Company

Dedicated to excellence in flooring, We Love Parquet was launched in 2018 by parquetry experts Ivan Kirton and Wail Daftar.

We Love Parquet had its beginnings in Kirton Fine Parquetry, which had been in the flooring business since 2009, honing skills and customer service and transitioning to more specialised areas of timber flooring.

The origins of We Love Parquet go back many years. Wail and Ivan met in Technical College when they were studying flooring technology and have since worked together in the flooring industry. Their diverse family histories, individual expertise and industry backgrounds are complementary when working on flooring installations.

At We Love Parquet we aim to exceed industry standards in the installation and sanding of our parquetry floors. Our family names and history stand behind every floor we install, sand and polish. We use quality timbers and market leading equipment to ensure our clients are getting the best result possible. We install and sand our floors completely in-house to ensure the highest level of quality control.

Ivan and Wail are dedicated to attention to detail and set the highest standards of craftmanship. Both Ivan and Wail understand customer needs and you will find them and their staff easy to work with to deliver the flooring best suited to customer requirements.
