Blanco Wide Plank, a durable range of extra wide flooring boards from Havwoods was selected for the London store of popular streetwear brand October's Very Own (OVO).

Co-founded by Canadian hip-hop star Drake, OVO has four retail stores in major cities across North America. For their fifth standalone store, OVO appointed Brinkworth and Wilson Brothers to collaborate on the interior design.

Building on the successful design of the existing OVO stores, the designers have reinterpreted the concept to resonate in London’s Soho.

Having supplied products for most of Brinkworth’s projects, Havwoods was once again engaged by the designers to meet the specific requirements of the OVO London store fitout. Seeking to elevate the finishes and materials to a premium level, the designers preferred a contemporary and sophisticated look on the floor.

Havwoods’ Blanco Wide Plank, a stunning range of UV oiled extra wide boards was specified for the store’s flooring. The flooring boards in double white stained finish offered sufficient natural warmth to stand out from the otherwise monochrome palette utilised in the store.
