Located an hour from Philadelphia in Greenville, DE, Purebread Deli is a locally owned and operated upscale café determined to “Make it Better”. Purebread offers an unmatched variety of gourmet soups, salads, sandwiches, fresh-brewed coffee, and superb baked goods. Their menu continually evolves to showcase what they feel are delicious, unique flavor combinations in order to provide a memorable dining experience. Whenever possible, PureBread partners with locally owned suppliers and donates each day’s leftover baked goods to the local Food Banks.

For their Greenville location, Purebread decided to renovate the dated space into a cozy and modern establishment. Exposed brickwork, soft lighting, and ceiling features helped create the industrial, modern aesthetic. The ceiling features DIABLO shou sugi ban charred western red cedar and transitions into a modern tin tile. Pairing together different finishes through the space helps add depth to the overall design.

DIABLO features CHARRED WESTERN RED CEDAR burnt in the Japanese style of shou sugi ban.  DIABLO can be used for interior wall and ceiling cladding, and is standardly select tight knot grade. DIABLO can be treated to Class A Fire Rating for Interior Applications – please call to inquire.

DIABLO is carefully charred, misted with water, cooled, brushed and given a clear sealer.  The top coat sealer is applied prior to shipping.  The burning process accentuates the wood grain and creates varying colors when viewed from different angles and in different light.

CHARRED CEDAR features shou sugi ban charred western red cedar in a range of colors from a stark, vertical grain black to a knotty natural brown. Western red cedar has been used as a consistent and high performing exterior wood siding for hundreds of years. Most of reSAWN’s CHARRED CEDAR designs can be used in similar exterior applications and interior wall/ceiling cladding.

Our charring & sealing process makes for beautifully designed exterior wood siding.  Like any exterior wood siding prefinished or finished in place, these materials will weather naturally over time and will require maintenance.  For interior applications, expect little to no change.  

reSAWN’s CHARRED offering features cypress, western red cedar, Accoya, Kebony, black walnut, red oak, white oak and reclaimed hemlock that is burnt in the Japanese tradition of shou sugi ban.  Our award-winning CHARRED products pay homage to the traditional Japanese technique of “shou-sugi-ban” aka “yakisugi” without being literal.  Historically very specific in their definition, “shou-sugi-ban” and “yakisugi” have become common nomenclature for modern charred wood designs in general.  All of reSAWN’s CHARRED products are made in the USA, in our facility in Telford, PA.
