River-Recovered® Heart Cypress – Indoor / Outdoor Ceilings and Walls

Antique River-Recovered and reclaimed heart cypress feature walls and interior/exterior wood walls and ceilings are now widely used in contemporary design. S.R. Freeman is using Goodwin’s River-Recovered Heart Cypress on their latest modern home project in California.  The folks at SR Freeman were kind enough to send us some photos of the heart cypress walls and ceilings as they are being installed.  Special thanks for this sneak peek!

Heart Cypress Feature Walls and Paneling a Focal Point of University of South Florida’s Coquina Club

When the University of South Florida, St. Petersburg Campus (USFSP) sought to freshen and update some campus buildings that were designed and built in the 1970s, they turned to our good friend and architect Beverly Frank of BFrank Studio in Tampa, Florida. Ms. Frank specified Goodwin’s River-Recovered® heart cypress wood paneling for the university’s Coquina Club project.

The renovation and addition aligns with USFSP’s Strategic and Master Plan.
The final design includes a multipurpose, indoor/outdoor lounge and event space. This newly renovated student-centered area has an outdoor pool, harborside lawn and access to the Haney Landing Sailing Center.

The Coquina Club features 50/50 mix of vertical and character heart cypress paneling – absolutely GEORGOUS! Goodwin also provided a large heart cypress slab countertop. Dan Petersen of Heritage Wood Finish Company finished the countertop as well as the heart cypress feature wall and paneling (Diamond 7 interior; WOCA oil exterior).

Here is a sneak peek of the project (more photos to come):

Willis-Smith is the general contractor and Home Pride Cabinets completed the cypress installation. The exterior inset feature wall includes routed lettering by Warren Kay of Kay Enterprises.

Wow! This Antique Wood Kitchen Flooring is as Unique as it is Gorgeous

Check out this gorgeous antique wood kitchen floor handcrafted from 12” end grain antique heart pine.  Goodwin milled this unique wood kitchen flooring to have more of a “tile” look. It was installed twelve years ago by our good friends at Absolute Hardwood Floors in a lovely historic home in Palm Beach, Florida.  You can see all the elegance and detail, including the growth rings.  This beauty certainly is a one of a kind!

Goodwin values our long-term partnerships with esteemed companies such as Absolute.  We are currently milling an antique heart pine floor for them to install into another home in beautiful Palm Beach, Florida. And, yes, antique wood is perfect for beach homes.  Goodwin’s proprietary Diamond finish will not only protect it, but will keep it looking fresh for years to come.

Since antique wood is trending in contemporary design, now is the time to consider giving your beach home a new look.  Contact us today for a complimentary customized consultation with one of our antique wood flooring experts.

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:

The Legacy building reclaimed heart pine shelves really complete the space.

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.

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.
