The Architectural Digest Design Show (ADDS) is the essential showcase for luxury design. The four-day fair showcases design offerings from more than 400 brands, including well-known manufacturers and independent makers.

reSAWN is pleased to introduce 4 new designs on reclaimed hemlock inspired by reclaimed barn siding. The reclaimed hemlock is wirebrushed with a stain/sealer. The colors have been carefully curated by our product developer to reflect the colors typically found on reclaimed barn siding. Designers can now specify a reclaimed wood product that looks like barn siding without the concerns of lead paint that can sometimes be found on old barns. The beautifully rustic reclaimed hemlock adds variation and fluidity to these designs while the stain/sealer allows for a more consistent all over color than can be achieved with reclaimed barn siding.
