Santa Barbara Residence: Reclaimed Teak Flooring

THIS RESIDENCE IN SANTA BARBARA FEATURES PELA TEAK RECLAIMED FLOORING FROM ANTHOLOGY WOODS WITH A CLEAR OIL FINISH

The owners of this home in Santa Barbara wanted the rich red-brown and deep caramel to cognac color tones of a tropical hardwood for their remodeled flooring, with some natural patina & texture to make the wood wear well and age gracefully.

PROJECT LOG: CUSTOM WHITE-WASHED RECLAIMED TEAK WOOD WALL IN HAWAII

ANTHOLOGY WOODS JUST COMPLETED THIS WHITE-WASHED RECLAIMED SAKHAY TEAK WALL PANELING FOR A RETAIL STORE IN THE WAIKIKI AREA OF HONOLULU, OAHU!  

We love the natural beauty of wood, and if the perfect look doesn't exist in nature, we can help you tailor a custom look to get just the right affect - like we did for this reclaimed teak wall cladding. In this case, the designer was seeking a white-washed, refined look for the FSC reclaimed tropical wood wall.  She had considered Silvered Dinizia, but needed the look to be a bit cleaner, while still exhibiting stunning wood grain patterns and the life of natural color variation - but with a smooth, instead of weathered, texture.  

Anthology Woods sampled a few options, and this water-based white washed finish was the stunning winner!  

Anthology Woods FSC reclaimed Sakhay Teak with a custom white-washed, low-voc water based finish for interior or exterior use.

The journey of reclaimed Teak wood

Steps to Reclaim Wood for Flooring and Cladding

How Anthology Woods Reclaims Sakhay Teak

In classic Anthology Woods fashion, we are nerd-ing out on a detail today: The process of reclaiming wood.  Specifically, the gorgeous reclaimed Sakhay Teak Flooring and Wall Paneling we source from Southeast Asia.

The info graph below explains the journey of our Reclaimed Teak, as it is reclaimed and reincarnated for another life.  The hands-on labor involved in reclaiming wood indicates why reclaimed wood often costs more than new wood.

And what a stunning life reincarnated Sakhay Teak lives:  Gorgeous grain, deep rich color, and a luxurious supple surface lining the floor of a custom residence or providing a warm welcome on the wall of a corporate lobby:
