Using Antique Wood to Warm Up a Contemporary Space

When it comes to warming up an contemporary interior with antique wood, Chris Webb of CW Interiors, Inc. is a master! Chris sourced our Legacy® building reclaimed heart pine and sinker cypress for this residential remodel just last year. What do you think about these beautiful tongue and groove Legacy® building reclaimed heart pine walls?

These were handcrafted for a homeowner in Tampa, Florida. Incorporating antique wood in contemporary design is most definitely trending, especially among millennials who value both the uniqueness and sustainability of reclaimed wood.

Chris also built in a stunning heart cypress credenza to complement the room. Here is a closer look:

When using reclaimed woods, the design possibilities are limitless. We find many clients really love the look and feel of sinker cypress. And, since antique heart cypress is rot-resistant, it is perfect for outdoor applications, including siding and ceilings.

Are you ready for a change? If so, give us a call. Whether your space is modern or traditional, antique heart cypress and heartpine offers a beautiful and desirable upgrade to any room in your home or office.

An Antique Twist to Modern Look

Do you love the look of reclaimed wood but prefer a modern style living or work area?  Central Hardwoods of Dallas, Texas achieved both in this sleek office space:

Central Hardwoods used Goodwin’s River-Recovered® and reclaimed wood paneling – antique longleaf to be specific – which resulted in this classy, antique twist on a modern look.  If you love it and gotta have it, give us a call!

According to our resident expert Dan Petersen:

“The UV Oil finish is made of 35 or 40 different raw materials, mostly acrylic based resins and monomers, while the UV Diamond top coat gives the best wear resistance as well as the gloss level that you want. We prefer low gloss systems, so we can show the beautiful wood from Goodwin and not so much the coating. Both the UV Oil and the Diamond finish have better ‘flexibility’ than other UV Acrylated Epoxy Polyesters as described in, “Selecting a Finish System” by the Architectural Woodworking Institute.

In a nutshell, this means you can have the highest quality finish on the market – and, any color you can imagine!  Contact us today so we can help you create the look of your dreams.

 

Antique River-Recovered® Heart Cypress – It’s Not Your Parents’ Paneling!!

If when you hear paneling you think “hardware store”, please stop right there.

One-thousand-year-old Heart Cypress isn’t simply a “photo” of real wood glued on the back of a piece of cheap wood.  Antique Heart Cypress is some of the most mysterious, beautiful wood in the entire world.  It adds mystique and value to your hunt lodge, mountain home or beach house.

Here is an illustration and image of the largest biomass on the planet in Santa Maria del Tule, Mexico.

Tidewater Red Cypress –‘The Wood Eternal’, by the Southern Cypress Manufacturers Association, 1936.

Our Cypress sale ends September 30th, so call us today to take advantage of this special pricing.

An Easy and Affordable Upgrade to Any Home or Office Space 3

We’re Off to the Beach…

heartcypressWe love seeing old wood in beach homes. Mysterious 1,000-year-old heart cypress with rich tans and browns popped with UV Oil elegantly and gracefully bring the feel of the sand and ocean atmosphere into your beach home, office or retail establishment. So, as you can imagine, we are very excited to be presenting at SGA Architects in Pawley’s Island, South Carolina this Thursday, September 17th. SGA specifies a lot of cypress paneling in their beautiful coastal home designs.

Afterwards, Jeffrey Forbes, Goodwin’s Marketing Coordinator, and I have the privilege of presenting a CEU class at the Carolinas American Society of Interior Designers Annual Conference on Friday, September 18th. We will be discussing how to incorporate reclaimed wood into award-winning designs. Visuals include videos of river log recovery and historic images of ‘the big cut’ in the 1800’s when clearing the southern forests became one of the main drivers for rebuilding the US economy after the Civil War.

It is always a pleasure to provide building design professionals with resources they need to specify the wood they want and incorporate the installation and finish processes to ensure their clients’ satisfaction for the long term!

Yes, Heart Pine Walls are Beautiful, Too!

Check out the progression of these beautiful tongue and groove River-Recovered® Heart Pine walls. Chris Webb of CW Interiors, Inc. / CWEBB Designs in Tampa, Florida has been installing these in a home in Tampa, Florida and they are just gorgeous. Chris, a true craftsman and stickler for detail, first fashioned a large room divider/shelving unit using Goodwin’s LEGACY™ (building reclaimed) Heart Pine and River-Recovered Heart Cypress. Next, he tackled the walls, paneling them with even more LEGACY heart pine. Traditional materials meet modern design in this latest Chris Webb creation. See what you think:
