A magnet for writers, artist and statesmen, so many notable people have lived in this unconventional yet fashionable area over the years. Thomas More built a now-vanished house here, while Wilde, Carlyle and Whistler came to live, as did George Eliot, though sadly only to die in 1880.
Among buildings, St Luke’s offers confident early gothic revival in contrast to the bombed out remains of the old church. Crosby Hall is a notable example of late 15th domestic architecture, transported from Bishopsgate and rebuilt, with its timber frame and splendid wooden roof.
Despite the advent of modern building materials, timber remains a natural and enduring product. Wooden floors are as popular as ever in all kinds of domestic and commercial buildings. With their good looks and durability, they are also hygienic and easy to maintain.
Whether in a pub, school, home, gallery, office or restaurant, they are a valuable feature that merits care and attention. Feet and neglect can take their toll, so if your floors are looking sad, marked or damaged - it’s time to restore them to a good state of health.

Useful facts about Chelsea:
Chelsea is an affluent area of central London, England, bounded to the south by the River Thames, where its frontage runs from Chelsea Bridge along the Chelsea Embankment, Cheyne Walk, Lots Road and Chelsea Harbour. Its eastern boundary was once defined by the River Westbourne, which is now in a pipe above Sloane Square tube station. The modern eastern boundary is Chelsea Bridge Road and the lower half of Sloane Street, including Sloane Square, along with parts of Belgravia. To the north and northwest, the area fades into Knightsbridge and South Kensington, but it is safe to say that the area north of King's Road as far northwest as Fulham Road is part of Chelsea.
Chelsea is an upmarket neighbourhood equivalent to that of New York's Upper East Side, Los Angeles' Beverly Hills or the 16th arrondissement of Paris. This is shown in the average housing price in Chelsea which is above £1.3 million. The exclusivity of Chelsea as a result of its high property prices has historically resulted in the term Sloane Ranger to be used to describe its residents. Recently, Channel 4 has broadcast a reality television show called Made in Chelsea, documenting the "glitzy" lives of several young people living in Chelsea. Moreover, Chelsea is home to one of the largest communities of Americans living outside of the United States, with 6.53% of Chelsea-residents being born in the United States.
Chelsea once had a reputation as London's bohemian quarter, the haunt of artists, radicals, painters and poets. Little of this seems to survive now – the comfortable squares off King's Road are homes to, amongst others, investment bankers and film stars. The Chelsea Arts Club continues in situ; however, the Chelsea College of Art and Design, originally founded in 1895 as the Chelsea School of Art, moved from Manresa Road to Pimlico in 2005. A central part of Chelsea's artistic and cultural life was Chelsea Public Library, originally situated in Manresa Road. Its longest serving member of staff was Armitage Denton, who joined in 1896 at the age of 22, and he remained there until his retirement in 1939; he was appointed Chief Librarian in 1929. In 1980, the building was purchased by Chelsea College of Art and Design.
