Deforestation is a major environmental issue in our modern world, as over harvesting and forest degradation not only significantly adds to carbon emissions (upwards of 20% of total global carbon emissions!), but also reduces the ability of forests to absorb existing carbon as well. Forests are vital ecosystems that support 80% of the world’s land animals and plants, including rare and endangered species, like the Sumatran tiger and Bornean orangutan.
Restaurant projects have always been near to our hearts at Anthology Woods. We recognize the important role coming together over food & drinks plays in building relationships and creating community, and we love our connection to that process in sourcing & preparing old wood for a new life in restaurants.
Clean, bright white spaces lend an uplifting feeling of contemporary simplicity, and this palette of white sometimes extends to the floor in the form of white-washed, bleached, lyme (limed) or lye treated, soaped, cerused or even painted wood plank flooring. If you are thinking about using a white wood floor in your project, there are a few things to consider to help you assess how good of a fit it will be long-term.
