Second Time’s a Charm: Surfaces Trend

Surfaces manufacturers are coming up with more and more ways to give recycled materials another chance. From reclaimed wood to recycled tires, these materials are making a good second impression:

Devon & Devon, floor, reclaimed, salvaged

Old Wood Collection by Devon & Devon: The new collection is fabricated from wood salvaged from renovations to vintage homes and restored to enhance its unique characteristics. Five patterns are available: French herringbone, Italian herringbone, Chantilly, Versailles, and a traditional multi-layer plank. www.devon-devon.com

Caesar, change, tile, LEED, recycled

Change by Caesar: The collection’s Night (pictured), Forge, and Bronze colors have a minimum of 40 percent pre-consumer recycled ceramic content and can contribute to LEED points. The ceramic tiles have a delicate microstructure that reflects light, creating a moiré effect. www.caesar.it

Eco, Cosentino, white, recycled, countertop

Eco by Cosentino: Composed of 75 percent recycled materials, the counter surface incorporates porcelain, glass, mirrors, and vitrified ash to achieve a unique appearance. White Diamond finish is pictured. www.cosentino-group.net

Starshine core, laminated panel

Starshine core by Starshine: Appropriate for floors, wall panels, or other interior applications, panels are composed of Starshine recycled raw material granulate between a layer of laminated glass. A low-energy manufacturing process contributes to the material’s environmental friendliness. www.starshine-glass.com

Re-Tire recycled rubber, Capri Cork

Re-Tire by Capri Cork: Created of a random mix of post-consumer SBR tire waste and EPDM rubber granules. Re-Tire is FloorScore certified and contributes to LEED credits. Collections within the line include Medley, which also contains pre-consumer cork waste, Kaleidoscope, Basics, and Shades of Black. www.capricork.com
