Smith & Fong Co.
The word “differentiation” is often over-used, especially when it comes from home builders. But you still want your remodeling or renovation to be unique so we recommend using something cool and different. We have one word: palm. Smith & Fong—the San Francisco-based company that sells the Plyboo line of bamboo products as well as Durapalm coconut palm line—has added a new line of Deco sugar-palm plywood, wall paneling, and flooring products. Unlike regular wall paneling, Deco palm products’ three-dimensional appearance is more architecturally interesting, which should make the neighbors jealous. Floor planks measure 3 inches wide; plywood measures 36 inches by 96 inches; and panels are 6 inches by 48 inches. www.plyboo.com.
