A short time ago we asked for your feedback on our products–many thanks to all who responded! We want you to know we’ve heard you and we’re incorporating your feedback into our pricing, product collections, and R&D. A few highlights: all of you continue to feature wood in projects – from reclaimed, salvaged, vintage woods to sustainably harvested fresh wood products. Yes, us too. Then you told us that our new finishes and patterns continue to strike a cord. Cool, because we’ve spent the entire year coming up with new colors, patterns, and textures. Some of you said price can be a big player in whether or not you can design with wood while others said you thought all reclaimed wood was expensive. Perfect timing, we’d like to bring your attention to 8 of our species/grades that are under $8 per sq ft:

Grey, Lavender, Chocolate, Vanilla, and Walnut: Yum!

A few weeks ago I would have said there was no way I could possibly like Reclaimed Ash in Custom Grey any more than I already did. Turns out, I was wrong.

Sparkling Sawdust—HiLo Hotel in Portland

InviteBlog post by Deborah Roe

Thursday night (7/13) was the opening for HiLo in downtown Portland, Oregon. A few of us from Pioneer Millworks attended the event where we ate, were painted gold, and silently discoed the night away. The 120-room boutique style hotel resides in the Oregon Pioneer Building (a National Register of Historic Places). We have a few ties—turns out back in 2008-10 our own Elise Payne worked in the building.

Drinks

The party started as soon as we walked in the door. There were specialty drinks and intricate food of various varieties scattered throughout the hotel.

And the barn wood we know and love? Even it has another side—an inside, an underside, a creative side. It’s time to push the envelope further and get adventurous with colors in the cracks and crevasse.
