Not just rustic

We see it all here. Our projects run the gamut from commercial to residential, floors to walls and everywhere in between. And a lot of what our clients ask for isn’t “standard” and doesn’t bear any resemblance to the ‘log cabin’ look people often associate with reclaimed wood. This salon in Boston exudes modern cool with our Weathered White Barn Siding on the walls and reception desk.

The Weathered White Barnsiding helps create a sleek modern look with interest and texture.

In this particular application, the owners needed not only to encapsulate the original paint to prevent flaking but also to make sure that the material met the requirements for the fire code. We were able to help them find a solution that served both purposes- a clear, uniform coating, with a Class A fire rating.

You can see in these images that not only does the coating protect the walls, but it adds a slight sheen.  This touch works to complement the contemporary aesthetic.

The reclaimed material works throughout all of the different areas of the salon. Here it surrounds the retail product display.

As the planks wind their way through the reception, salon and retail spaces, the distressed wood holds your interest, while the monochrome color scheme keeps the look fresh.  The finish reflects the light and contrasts the textures.  Nothing about this barn wood application says barn.

Until next time!

Casual Comfort in the Pacific Northwest

We can’t get enough of the pictures our clients share with us when their work is completed!

Recently we received some images from homeowners outside of Seattle, WA. The home, nestled in a wooded setting included existing rugged timbers and Ross worked with them to find a product that would complement the space and their comfortable style. Enter our Settlers’ Plank Mixed Hardwoods.

One of our most popular products, the Mixed Hardwoods Settlers' Plank works well with a wide variety of spaces and aesthetics.

The varied colors and textures combine to create a floor that is durable, forgiving and not too fussy. It’s a perfect fit with a combination of vintage and modern accessories. Often we see this floor finished with a penetrating Tung Oil, but here the owner opted for a water-based polyurethane, keeping the color tones lighter and cooler- truer to the unfinished look of the material. It’s a great choice.

The flooring flows throughout the main living space of the home, unifying the various areas of the large open space and on into the office where it is again paired with cool paint tones, warm wood and bright white accents.

One of the great things about a Mixed Hardwood floor is that it goes with everything. Here it is paired with a stained Oak desk top as well as painted cabinetry and trim elements.

The timber elements were existing in the home (though they look like they could have come straight form our yard) and are complemented by they textural variation in the flooring.

Our homeowners let us know that they “absolutely love how the floors turned out and get tons of compliments.”

Which is the best compliment that we can get!
