Looking at this floor, would you guess that it's recycled wood? I certainly wouldn't. The fact is, most salvaged or reclaimed wood floors have a more distinctive, rustic (worn out) look to them. That description definitely doesn't apply to these floors.
I would've thought that wood floors as polished and glossy as these would have to come from "virgin" flooring. And while most of us think of using wood, especially FSC-certified wood, as a positive environmental choice, the truth is that even the most eco-friendly mills across the world discard between 30 to 40 percent of a log’s usable lumber. Usually these strips are tossed into landfills, ground into sawdust, or burned. That is, unless Staybull Flooring gets to these wood scraps first.
Staybull flooring offers customers gorgeous wood floors that are made from discarded wood from mills across the world. The company boasts a variety of 20 species of exotic recycled hardwoods from Africa and South America, including Brazilian cherry (shown here), canarywood, wenge, and a variety of mahogany. Staybull's North American species include white oak, red oak, cherry, maple, and black walnut.
