The sky has always played a role in my life inspiring ideas for various projects, and to keep me moving forward. The wide range of blue sky tones influenced an idea to transfer an outdoor color scheme that can engage various emotional connections, into a beautiful hardwood floor series called Series 6. Whether it is the warm summer sky in the evening, the freshness of a cold crisp mountain sky at mid day, or the early morning when the whole city is sleeping and the sun is about to light up the sky, these various tones lay foundation to the inspiration to this beautiful collection of blues.

EXTENDED INSPIRATION

Marcus Garvey said, ”a people without the knowledge of their past history, origin and culture is like a tree without roots.” I am interested in the history of what makes something great. The foundation of the designing process of Series 10 is reflective of that fact. The rustic look and the features of different wood species reminded me of my own history, and a cabin a grew up visiting in the Sierra Nevada mountains.

The natural features of wood presents unique characteristics that no machine was fully capable of replicating. The natural uniqueness of the different species vary, and bringing those features out with a natural color selection was my goal. The idea was to have a series speak to the history of hardwood flooring, have a sense of comfort and familiarity, and reflect the most natural look creating a gorgeous product line.

Reflecting back to that cabin, I am reminded of the amplified smell of the wood from the iron fireplace that cut through it’s two story layout. The way the cabin’s structure kept me warm on cold snowy winter mornings. Stepping outside to the smell of surrounding lush healthy pines, and the sound of the wind passing through their tall heights as they would sway with only to the strongest gusts. This part of my history is a comforting reminder and an appropriate concept to transfer into an elegant rustic series for any suitable home or business.
