Rustic River Hardwood is an inspired collection of rustic wood floors that presents the richness and warmth of seasoned and weathered hardwood, while featuring bold textures, traditional colors including greys as well as intriguing styling. They make an ideal floor trend fit for both modern and farm-style houses.

Wide Plank and Varying Widths

Trends are pushing toward wider and varying plank floors. With floor trend boards often a foot wide or even broader. This works well for cabin styles, but can lend a mature, authentic look to any style home. Choosing boards with varying widths gives the floor a unique, custom charm. It’s also a style that hearkens back to historic homes.

Made from natural wool fiber rather than synthetic fibers, wool carpet provides extra benefits that other fibers cannot replicate.
