Producing floors using reclaimed material really struck a chord with Rob and Lydia, as sustainable living is a vital component of their lifestyle. For their new beach home in Beaufort, S.C., the couple desired to create authentic and unique flooring distinct to their lifestyle to help, "raise the art of living well." The Mondavis found Authentic Reclaimed Flooring while researching flooring options for their home; Authentic Reclaimed Flooring's work with reclaimed heart pine from the Old Crow Distillery peaked their interest. "Rob and I felt a floor from the Old Crow Distillery was exactly what we were looking for in a floor. The history of the wood, combined with the beauty of heart pine was simply perfect," says Lydia Mondavi.
Zack McMurry, owner of Authentic Reclaimed Flooring assures, "There will be more Mondavi floors in the future. Working with Rob and Lydia developing the floors was refreshing as we were able to infuse a truly unique perspective into our creative process."
The initial collection contains reclaimed heart pine from the Old Crow Distillery, white oak and a few wine barrels. Both parties felt it important to have oak within the collection since it is oak barrels in which the Mondavi's wines are aged.
The reclaimed floors in the collection are the Reserve Barrel and Mondavi's Choice. Mondavi's Choice, which was used in their design home, is produced from reclaimed heart pine with a quiet, gray patina that allows the natural beauty of the heart pine to show through. The Reserve Barrel is a rare floor produced using decommissioned Mondavi wine casks. It is available in small quantities and typically once a year.
The two oak floors in the collection are Late on the Vine and Smokey Notes. Mondavi describes Late on the Vine as "a deep brown reminiscent of a decommissioned whiskey barrel." Smokey Notes offers deep gray/brown tones, inspired by the smokey flavor found in bold, red wines.
Partners of the Mondavi home include: Kohler, Ann Sacks, Kallista, Circa Lighting, Silestone by Cosentino, Thermador, Benjamin Moore, Trex Decking, M Interiors, Allen Patterson Residential
