The Floor

Sasha - November 25, 2008

Although this project hasn’t been good for my heart and stress levels in general terms, you can imagine my horror when I checked in on the floor that was delivered, only to find that it was the wrong colour.
With time of the essence, a kitchen to come very soon, and having to wait until just the right moment for the floor to come in, I had to act quickly on that day of installation. Feverish negotiations with the supplier ensued - I was blamed for the colour being wrong and for a moment there it felt like they were going to force me to accept the floor as it was delivered. Well I’d have none of it! The colour scheme, materials and design in this apartment have all been painstakingly chosen, so I wasn’t about to let go of what was clearly a supplier error. The other colour they delivered was a light brown - it just wouldn’t have worked and I was nearly in tears when I saw it. I took the morning off work to sort this out - this was an emergency after all!
After tense negotiations they were able to source and install the floor I ordered that very same day, and here it is going in:

Looking good, huh?
What a relief I was able to sort that one out!

The glass plate has also been installed in the bathroom, and is looking totally hot!

  1. In the aftermath, have you been able to find out what actually happened? I know it’s over and doesn’t matter so much now … but I’m just a wee bit obsessive. So I’d be wondering.
