These are Interwoven Eco-Panels by New York-based Architectural Systems, Inc. The company has tons of green materials for retail, hospitality, and entertainment projects, etc, but these interlocking panels would work as a focal point in a multifamily- or single-family project, too. They come in walnut, maple, and American oak with no VOCs and FSC-certified wood, upon request. Interwoven panels may contribute toward LEED credits for low-emitting materials and certified wood, according to ASI.
Reclaimed wood is a growing category of floor covering, and that is good news both for consumers and for the environment. Because of the popularity of reclaimed wood flooring, there are more and more affordable choices than ever. Sourcing just the right material for your home is still a little more work than buying off the shelf at your local flooring store, but armed with some basic information before you start talking to suppliers will make finding your perfect floor much easier. Not all suppliers are created equal, either. In most cases it is worthwhile to do due-diligence to make sure the company is reliable, established and has consistent stock before you fall in love with a particular style.
Last week I talked about how you can source the right reclaimed wood flooring for your project, and this week I want to conclude with some detail about choosing and installing a floor finish. One thing to keep in mind when installing any wood floor, you should always (always!) follow the guidelines set out by the National Wood Flooring Association. They cover every possible scenario you might encounter. We have them posted on the Viridian Reclaimed Wood website here.
