The figure of George the First stands atop the Hawksmoor Church of St George. He gazes down on an area still synonymous with a certain literary exclusiveness and bedecked by the squares which appear so representative of London’s calm and confident prosperity. Indeed, Bloomsbury Square was the first of its kind in London, laid out by the Earl of Southampton in 1661.
The high building standards remain, obvious to the casual passer by. Inside these properties, whether remaining as domestic buildings or modern offices, as well as in the more recent pubs, cafes and restaurants, wood floors provide their own class and beauty. They are also the most practical of floor surfaces, being easy to clean and extremely durable.
Yet wear and damage can turn them into embarrassing and inadequate underperformers. Delay no further.

Bloomsbury is an area of the London Borough of Camden, in central London, between Euston Road and Holborn, developed by the Russell family in the 17th and 18th centuries into a fashionable residential area. It is notable for its array of garden squares, literary connections and numerous cultural, educational and healthcare institutions.
Bloomsbury is home to the University of London's central bodies and departments, including the Senate House Library and School of Advanced Study, and several of its colleges, including University College London, Birkbeck, the London School of Hygiene and Tropical Medicine and the School of Oriental and African Studies.
An 1878 publication, Old and New London: Volume, mentions the idea that the area was named after a village called "Lomesbury" which formerly stood where Bloomsbury Square is now, though this piece of folk etymology is now discredited. At the end of the 14th century Edward III acquired Belmond’s manor, and passed it on to the Carthusian monks of the London Charterhouse, who kept the area mostly rural. In the 16th century, with the Dissolution of the Monasteries, Henry VIII took the land back into the possession of the Crown, and granted it to Thomas Wriothesley, 1st Earl of Southampton.
