Reclaimed Wood and NYC

While Jered was traversing NYC to meet with folks and look in on a few projects he kept us up-to-date (have to love technology!) with photos. Here are a few from his stops:

Chobani, NYC
On his way to meeting with potential clients, Jered stopped by the new (and only) Chobani yogurt store. He charmed his way in the door even as they were preparing for a commercial photo shoot. Some of our redwood, salvaged from a Finger Lakes winery, has new life as the fixtures and ceiling paneling in the shop. It really looks stellar!

Steve Madden, Broadway NYC
Jered made another quick stop to the newest Steve Madden store capturing a few images of our Grandma’s Attic mixed softwoods flooring and antique grey barn siding on the walls. The contrast of the antique wood with the LED shelf display lighting (see image below) is a perfect example of old melding with new. To think that in the past this antique wood handled whatever Mother Nature and farm animals dished out…today it faces a new challenge: shoe obsessed humans.

Sunburnt Calf, NYC
Speaking of wood that has dealt with animals, Black & Tan, Black reclaimed horse farm fence boards now offer protection to the exterior waiting area at the Sunburnt Calf bar/restaurant. Don’t worry, the black paint was traced back to its original source and was found to be an environmentally friendly, waterborne polymer. It is a non-toxic, non-flammable, solvent free, low VOC waterproof coating used in agricultural settings and safe for use around farm animals…and hungry folks.

Chevron Pattern, NYC

We’ve been salvaging flooring and bleachers from educational institutions that are re-vamping their gymnasiums. Some of the bleacher boards have made their way to the floor in an interesting chevron pattern. All of the original aisle numbers, paint markings, bolt holes, dings, dents, and scuffs were maintained in this floor. The only thing missing is the old gum stuck to the bottom – our prep crew had fun scraping it off! (We heard that Juicy Fruit continued to offer a recognizable scent. Now that is long lasting.)
