We recently returned from a trip to Las Vegas where we attended the largest surfaces trade show in North America, Surfaces 2012. We browsed thousands of new products and are excited to report on our top five eco finds*.
TorZo ™ is an elegant, durable and sustainable surface material for commercial and residential spaces. Made from agricultural byproducts, recycled wood, and infused with an acrylic resin, TorZo products are ideal for high wear applications.
Everitt & Schilling manufactures wood tiles made from old barn wood and other reclaimed wood. Available in a variety of natural tones, every tile has a unique heritage and history to help create eye-catching interiors.
FriendlyWall panels are made from solid hardwood. The wood strips are available in different sizes and colours to create warm, contemporary spaces.
Ventique flush mount vents are made of cast aluminum. Unique and durable, they are available in three styles and five colours.
Our favourite eco pick from Surfaces 2012 was FCS recycled teak solid and engineered hardwood flooring by IndoTeak Design.
All of the teak wood is reclaimed by hand from historic buildings and old fishing boats from Indonesia. They also make sure that all adhesives and special finishes are formaldehyde and VOC free. Naturally weathered over time, the hand selected teak wood has stunning colour variations that result in a truly unique and special floor.
*Although we don’t have these products in store yet, we do plan to add them to our selection in the near future. Stay tuned!
