Go Beyond the Surface: November 2014

Eco-Friendly Floors by Metropolitan Hardwood Floors


While we always do our research prior to selecting eco-friendly surfaces for The Eco Floor Store, we don’t always have the opportunity to see first-hand how the products are made. So when Metropolitan asked us if we’d be interested in touring their manufacturing facilities in China, we jumped at the chance.

It was great to see how Metropolitan’s commitment to sustainability and quality is made true in their day-to-day processes during the manufacturing of their hardwood, engineered hardwood and laminate floors.

The new Mercedes-Benz dealership in Aberdeen Centre in Richmond is now open. While Christmas shopping, make sure to swing by to check out the new Finium FriendlyWall we supplied and installed – and maybe drive away with a brand new car! 😉

Flexible Wall Covering at BlueShore Centre

Do you have a surface that has some beautiful curves? We recently supplied flexible stone veneers for unique oblique shaped columns in the lobby of BlueShore Centre in North Vancouver, BC. The natural slate combined with the wood accents transform the columns into architectural focal points.

WE WENT TO CHINA! (Did that really happen?)

Wow, wow and wow! Thanks to Metropolitan Hardwood Floors, we visited four cities in China, took a high-speed bullet train, toured lots of must-see attractions, AND – our trip highlight – walked on the Great Wall of China.
