We’ve been privileged to work with Anthropologie creating unique reclaimed products for their stores throughout the US. We were excited when they called to say their newest store would be in Eastview Mall, Victor NY – right up the road from our Farmington shop. Opening day Jered waited among a group of Anthropologie fans and media for the doors to open. He wasn’t disappointed – the main flooring exceeded even our expectations.
A custom mix of reclaimed species, the floor includes barn siding that is partially planed leaving some of the original paint intact. Visually popping throughout the floor are boards previously painted grey-blue. The color is a unique find even in our vast inventory.
Shelving and trim called for one-of-a-kind reclaimed wood. Jered recommend reclaimed pickle vats (similar to wine vats).When gently sanded some of the brine and minerals continue to show through in the grain as a light coating of white.
Going for a cleaner look the shelving, created by NEWwoodworks
, smoothed out the pickle wood giving the bright color and natural black mineral staining a chance to shine.
Much of the pickle vat wood was used on the ceiling and overhangs throughout the store. We really loved how the herringbone pattern looked in the corners.
If you’re in the area be sure to check out the store. While you’re there scoot over to see our shop, chat with Jered and enjoy the mosaic of our office floor.
We’ve been working away at creating a new website and we’re happy to announce it is here! With cool new features including a flooring selector, lots of large photos, wood history and a square footage calculator. If you already have one of our floors send us a note with a picture and we’ll put it up. Enjoy!
On a recent trip to New York City, I had the pleasure of stopping in to the shopping Mecca of Bloomingdales to check on a floor of ours. It is cool enough that I’ll be using it an upcoming kitchen project in my own house, and as you can see, it further proves that our flooring works well with all sorts of designs. The area of the furniture showroom where our flooring is installed shows a modern decor – and looks fantastic.
This is our American Gothic Oak, and we have plenty more to go around. Give us a call or drop me a line and we’ll hook you up with a new floor for 2010.
Happy New Year!
If you think our current website is cool, wait till you see how hot the new one will be.
Check out Pioneer Millworks starting tomorrow. Have a seat, grab a cup of coffee, and peruse the most comprehensive selection of reclaimed wood around.
