Founder of Renaissance Floor In-Lays, Eugene Klotz, passed away on December 23, after a long battle with cancer.
Klotz founded Renaissance Floor In-Lays in 1989. As a graduate of the School of Craft and Arts in Poland he has designed and manufactured the most unique hardwood floors using only his talent and marquetry technique as a method of hand cutting inlays from various species of wood.
Winning numerous National Wood Flooring Association Floor of the Year contests has brought Klotz recognition and the most demanding clients including the Queen of Thailand.
When he started his business in San Francisco, he was one of the first pioneers in the U.S. hardwood floor market to introduce hand cut marquetry for decorative inlaid floors. After moving the company to Poland in 2009, he found yet bigger challenges in Europe.
Klotz always believed in talent, artistry and handmade craftsmanship.
