Detailed item info

Description
Lileum is t vinyl! The word lileum has become a generic term for resilient flooring of all kinds, but it is NOT vinyl. Lileum is a flooring product made of natural materials, including linseed oil, resins, wood flour, cork, limestone, and jute fabric. This fascinating new book focuses on vintage lileum; more specifically the marvelous patterns produced from its invention in 1863 until its almost complete eradication in 1960s due to widescale vinyl production. Lileum is also about the rebirth of authentic lileum flooring in the past couple of decades, and the hope for a future in which lileum receives the long overdue respect it has always deserved. Drawing upon their expertise in restoring and photographing old homes, the authors share the history and evolution of floor coverings generally, and lileum in particular. With humor and insight, they single out the differing types and patterns of this durable product, discuss its care and maintenance, and list major resilient flooring companies where lileum can easily be found. This is a must-have collectible book for anyone who ever played with toy cars on grandma's kitchen floor, or arranged their marbles to fit the curious patterns that stretched from corner to corner. Jane Powell is the proprietor of House Dressing, a business dedicated to revating and preserving old homes. She is the former president of the historic preservation organization in her hometown of Oakland, California. Her books include Bungalow Kitchens and Bungalow Bathrooms. Linda Svendsen specializes in architectural interior and exterior photography, and her work has been showcased in Camps and Cottages, Bungalow Kitchens, Bungalow Bathrooms, Old House Journal, Old House Interiors, and Lifestyles Magazine.
