Inspirations: 2018 Extreme Nature Additions Feature Appalachian Species and Sliced Veneers

The company’s leading product designers have celebrated the natural characteristics of hardwood with the introduction of Inspirations, a new addition of styles to Shaw’s popular Extreme Nature collection. Inspirations features sliced visuals and coveted Appalachian hardwood and highlights the gorgeous imperfections of knots, grains and character of natural hardwood, with colorations inspired by the weathering process of raw wood as it is exposed to the elements.

Available in three species:

Inspirations Ash the species’ bold and unique grain pattern for a pronounced visual.

Inspirations White Oak comes in three stunning colors and features a wire brushed texture that reveals prominent grain patterns for crisp, classic visuals.

Inspirations Maple comes in four striking colors and provides a smooth texture with intense character and dramatic visuals that offer a refined and elegant foundation to any room.

Shaw Floors’ exclusive Extreme Nature collection boasts the longest, widest hardwood planks manufactured in the U.S.A., meeting consumer demand and bringing continuity to their large, open interiors. Each Reflections plank is designed in a large-scale format: 7” wide by 82-½” long by ½” thick.
