HD Expo -- Social Hub

As the Hospitality Design Show and Expo comes to an end, folks are gathered at the center of the action, The Social Hub. Designed by Vincent Celano, partner of Seed Design, Inc., the modern and enticing space is a place to come relax, socialize and engage in design conversations.

Authentic Pine Floors was chosen by Seed Design to supply the wide-plank wood floors. “Grandpa Mac” reclaimed prefinished wide plank pine was chosen for the majority of the Social Hub. Two new products , “Shades of Gray” and “Deep Charcoal” prefinished wide plank floors in 10” widths completed the modern, sleek look.

The Green Conversations took place at the Social Hub where Authentic Pine Floors’ reclaimed wide-plank heart pine was the perfect entrance. Using reclaimed wood flooring is as green as it gets and gives the space immediate patina.

Authentic Pine Floors' “Grandpa Mac” is milled from beams and decking recovered from the “Old Crow” Distillery and were a perfect, and obvious, selection for the bar area. The Old Crow brand has a venerable history as one of Kentucky's earliest bourbons, distinct for being the first sour mash process bourbon whiskey. Authentic Pine Floors reclaimed some gorgeous heart pine, poplar and oak from one of the barrel houses at the Old Crow Bourbon Distillery in Woodford County, KY; structural beams, decking, and even the joists from the actual barrel runs.

Authentic Pine Floors’ prefinished floors are produced when ordered, so every floor has its own unique character.

The oil finish, precise milling and custom-color capability set these prefinished floors apart from the rest. The oil is burnished into the grain of the wood and as it cures, the oil hardens to form a protective surface that is actually part of the wood floor. The oil further enriches the deep patina of the already gorgeous wood, creating an unmistakable old world feel. Unlike topcoat finishes, the oil penetrates deep into the wood so the finish does not chip or peel.

With ZERO VOCs, these prefinished wood floors are child, pet and environmentally friendly. They are easy to spot repair, very durable and with regular maintenance, will not require refinishing. Authentic Pine Floors carry all the necessary maintenance products needed to keep your floor looking good for generations.
