This week DuChateau Floors announced that the company is bringing European-style floors to the U.S. market with an eco-friendly hard wax oil and FSC-certified woods. DuChateau has eight distinct collections with long-length, wide-plank, or parquet patterns that have been hand scrapped, smoked, wire-brushed, and treated for a vintage, old-world look. They’re made for interior commercial, retail, and residential applications, whether on the floor, ceiling, or wall.
In an economic climate that has companies hunkering down rather than innovating, sustainability leader Kliptech has spent considerable effort making their EcoTop recycled-paper countertops even more environmentally-friendly and affordable. This extremely durable surface material already received plenty of LEED points for its high recycled content — and at $35sq/ft, EcoTop was a pretty good deal.
So why mess with a good thing?
Housefish, a modular furniture company based in Denver, Colorado, conceived a new shelf design with inspiration from a beehive. Called Hex Modular Shelving, each shelf is made with custom aluminum extrusions that are light, strong, and hexagonal. The extrusions are then paired with FSC-certified, zero-VOC finish, maple plywood boards to create a strong and contemporary piece of furniture.
