Raw But
Refined

INSPIRED BY THE BEAUTIFULLY RICH FLORA & FAUNA OF THE INDIAN RIVER LAGOON ESTUARY, THE ARCHITECTURAL MATERIALITY OF THE SPANISH-COLONIALS & FLORIDA CRACKERS AND WITH THE HISTORY OF GRACEFUL LIVING AS A PRETEXT, THE PLANKE WOOD FLOORING COLLECTION FROM SAWYER & SOUTHERN DEFINES A 'RAW, BUT REFINED' AESTHETIC WITH A LINE OF EXQUISITE WOOD FLOORING, PERFECT FOR THE WELL-APPOINTED HOME.

To handle new planed wood, even to look at it or smell it, is to receive a message that life can still be in good heart; the very shavings are a crisp confirmation, a mystery; it is because wood, no matter how chopped, sawn, planed, somehow remains alive. I put my hand on the desk like a hand on a man’s shoulder. Into this material passed rain, sun, etc.  It has lived and some secret part of it still lives. Notice few men who work with wood are unhappy.
