products we love: salvaged wood


Fontenay

No matter what anyone tells you, the best wood in the world comes from a tree that was cut 50, 60, maybe even a 100 years ago. Why? Because the wood will have tighter grains and denser cells than anything today. The manufacturer knows this, which is why it uses old wine barrels from the Napa Valley region of California to make the flooring in its Vintage Barrel Collection. These are white oak. www.fontenay.us.
