Using real reclaimed wood planks means less pollution of our planet. The timber industry generates a large amount of air and water pollution with large-scale harvesting, transporting, and processing of wood. Other environmental pollution problems include solid waste disposal, toxic air emissions from burned end-cuts, veneer dryer emissions, and glue waste disposal. Obviously, reclaimed wood has already been harvested and processed long ago. What could be more environmentally friendly than recycling it?
When we partnered with John Colaneri from HGTV so he could design a baby girl’s room using Minimalist Fir on the wall, we knew he would deliver a stunning design that would be both unique and practical. He decided to do something different from the standard horizontal or vertical plank installation. He went with a double chevron pattern that was framed in on both sides. He chose the Minimalist Fir planks because he knew the warm hues of the wood would complement the blush pink walls in the rest of the room.
