With simple, subtle color notes, Osprey Software wanted a wood with a natural color and enhanced grain. reSAWN’s REED features antique reclaimed hemlock that is wire brushed to accentuate the unique grain pattern of hemlock.
Specified for ceiling cladding and wall cladding, REED can be found in reSAWN’s enCORE collection. The enCORE collection is made up entirely of different reclaimed wood species that include heart pine, oak, barn siding, chestnut, hemlock, and hickory. With a design aesthetic that includes dark and light grey colors, the natural coloring of the REED feature wall truly stands out. Hemlock’s unique grain pattern becomes very clear with the overhead, track lighting.
REED qualifies for numerous LEED credits. reSAWN TIMBER co. is committed to providing the highest-quality, sustainable building products, and the reclamation of antique wood is an excellent way to extend wood’s product lifecycle. Reclaimed wood also has exceptional performance qualities. Long before Columbus founded the new world, the seedlings of the great North American forests were taking root. Left undisturbed for centuries, these seedlings were able to slowly grow into massive trees, basking in the ample pollution-free air and water of pre-industrial America. This slow growth and natural habitat is key to the unique beauty and strength of antique reclaimed wood. Due to over-milling during the industrial era, all that remains of these majestic woods is preserved in the barns, homes, and buildings of that era.
