SOURCE STORY: SURFRIDER REDWOOD

Anthology Woods Surfrider Redwood collection pays homage to the early days of surfing in the mainland US with beachy distressed skip-planed wall paneling. The first surfers along the West Coast fashioned their boards from long and heavy pieces of redwood harvested in the Santa Cruz Mountains, and those same 140 year old boards are still intact today, epitomizing the durability and longevity of this prized wood.

Project Log: Contemporary Retail Space with Reclaimed Wood Feature Wall & Display Shelves

Anthology Woods recently collaborated with Substance Architecture in Des Moines, Iowa to customize Reclaimed weathered wood for small display shelves in their retail space design for Urban Eyecare & Eyewear.  Each antique wood shelf is intended to showcase their eyewear, and we love the use of the rustic wood element in a clean contemporary space! 

Research notes natural materials like wood help contribute to a healthy, comfortable, and pleasing environment, and we love the way it enhances a space with the warmth of natural earthy tones and the interest of texture and variation.  Beyond making custom shelves and running the lightly textured weathered grey & brown wall paneling throughout the space, Substance also specified our Northwest Blend reclaimed wood for some other fixtures of their retail space - benches & tables!  A little connecting on the details between the architect on the project and our team at Anthology Woods, and a custom specification for widths & milling profiles was born -- tailored to the design! 

Anthology Woods mills most products to-order, and a little custom tailoring is usually possible.  Our team would love to connect with you on your next project to help you create the perfect look with a distinctive sustainable wood!  Please contact us today and speak to our helpful people.  With your partnership, together we're contributing to a better tomorrow with the use of sustainable materials in stunning spaces.
