The Woodenfloors.uk.com Team

Jonathan Cowan - director

With a 16 year background in jewelry manufacturing, Jonathan Cowan joined forces with Jonathan de Friend back in April 2005 to help kick start Woodenfloors, a real leap of faith at the time – but one that has ultimately proved to be successful. Back in 2005, the company was an internet based firm only but with hard work and the understanding that a high street presence was required, it soon developed into the double fronted split level showroom it is now, servicing both the residential and commercial markets alike.

Jonathan heads up the contracts side of the business, and deals mainly with Architects, developers, contractors, designers and shop fitters in getting medium to large scale projects fitted with high quality and low cost engineered or solid wood flooring. In his time at Woodenfloors, he has had multiple timber floors specified in Harrods, The Cavalry and Guards Club and The Brewery and has worked alongside designers and firms such as Kelly Hoppen, Argent, London Projects, Fenton Whelan and Regal Homes, shop fitters like Reflex, Tomei and Sons, Portview Fit Out and Jaysam, and building firms such as Rackham Construction, Vascroft , Knight Harwood and MY Construction.

Jonathan is a keen sports fan and lives in Hertfordshire with his wife, two daughters and two dogs.

Give Jonathan Cowan a ring on 020 7625 1701 or 077474 873 182 or email him on jc@woodenfloors.uk.com if you are interested in specifying a high quality, low cost engineered or solid wood flooring, with a renowned and experienced company – he will be delighted to help.

Jonathan de Friend - director

Jonathan de Friend started his passion for property in 1990, enjoying a long and fruitful career until he decided he wanted a change in direction, and founded Woodenfloors.uk.com in December 2003.  With his hunger to grow the business quickly through the marketing of a new website & on-line sales, it soon became apparent that with business growing at a steady pace in its first year, and with the need to push the name and brand harder, Jonathan Cowan joined the company to head up the commercial side in April 2005.

The company has grown from strength to strength opening our flagship showroom in late 2005, since then the company has expanded its current premises displaying an array of timber floors, products and services in over 1600 sq feet of showroom space over two dedicated floors.

Jonathan specializes in the domestic sector of the business, and believes that with his passion for detail, “our hands on approach and high customer service” has made the business such a success!

Anita Gorsia

Having left school and jumping straight into the wood floor industry, its fair to say that Anita Gorsia has a fair amount of knowledge in the retail section of the wood flooring business. 17 years experience dealing with Interior Designers, Architects and end users means Anita is able to give sound advice on all wood  flooring requirements, and can advise clients which material would suit their needs and requirements. She has extensive knowledge on wood species and their suitability to any and all environments.

‘Every client has individual tastes and needs, and it is up to us, the professional, to steer them in the right direction and to make sure they choose a floor they will be happy with in the long term’ says Anita.

She joined the company in April 2011 looking for a new challenge with a view to putting all the years of experience to good use in a fast growing company. She has known the Jonathan’s for over 10 years and says  ‘it just seemed like the right decision to join Woodenfloors, as I knew they had a vast client portfolio which I knew I could help expand’ says Anita.

When Anita is not helping the world choose the right wood flooring she spends her free time looking after her 2 young children, keeping fit in the gym and less strenuous activities like listening to music and reading a good book.

Please contact Anita on sales@woodenfloors.uk.com or call her on 02076251701 for any information you may require on all aspects of wood flooring, she is only too happy to help.
