Shou-sugi-ban inspired Charcoal finish offers DIYers, architects and interior design professionals distinct, blackened-wood grains in a peel-and-stick format

At the Dwell on Design show, May 29-31, 2015, in Los Angeles, Stikwood announces the launch of their new Charcoal wood finish, made with American oak and resembling the Japanese scorched-wood technique, Shou-sugi-ban.

Dating back to 1700’s Japan, wood charring was originally used as a natural sealant. Stikwood now makes it possible for designers and DIYers to add this sophisticated look to any décor scheme for residential or hospitality applications.

“Our customers enjoy the beautiful, distinct grain patterns of our sustainable woods,” says Jerry McCall, co-founder of Stikwood. “Our Charcoal finish gives the blackened depth available previously only through an ancient art of actually burning the wood. We are excited to now offer this look in an easy-to-apply, peel-and-stick, thin-plank format.”

In addition to ease of application, Stikwood is a highly versatile design solution giving users the ability to customize their designs to suit individual tastes (i.e. using the Stikwood Charcoal finish to create an accent wall to highlight art pieces in a home, or strategically placing the product to soften the look of a big-screen TV).

“We have simplified the process,” says McCall. “Stikwood allows you to recreate this gorgeous, timeless look without having the excessive amount of time or tools needed to reach your goal.”
