Wood flooring inlay deign / medallion. Solid wood and cast stone inlay, The center ship design features our "gradient shading" technology for a beautiful 3D appearance. The shaded elements are sunken lower, then filled with glass like resin to bring it flush with the rest of the design. This allows beautiful 3D elements to be incorporated in a floor medallion, while making it possible to sand and refinish in the future without harming these areas.
Our Floor/Wall Art Inlay collection features wood and an alluring medley of mixed media combination designs. Our comprehensive pallet of raw materials enables us to create pieces with unparalleled and dynamic range of colors and textures.
Besides the color and texture of the materials, depth and dimension are important factors in achieving our signature three-dimensional look. In our 3D world, there have only been 2D floor designs that often look flat. We have overcome these 2D limitations with our trade secret process and innovative use of state-of-the-art technology. With our definition carving and deep gradient shading technologies, we ingrain movement, depth and realistic shadows for a stunning 3D look.
We adjust the construction of the design to best fit the use and application. For example, our wood flooring inlays typically feature a solid 1/4" wear layer, mounted to 1/2" Baltic Birch plywood. This is similar to the wear layer of a 3/4" solid wood floor. If the design incorporates carving and shading features (that do not go all the way through the material) and it must withstand future sanding and refinishing(s), we can recess these features and fill up the difference with a high strength crystal clear resin. This way, the sander only touches the resin. This resin is universally compatible with all types of urethane coatings. If, however, the design is intended to be used as wall art and/or a softer more natural look is desired, we do not recess the carved/shaded areas and do not apply resin. Instead, we apply a penetrating/hardening oil for an authentic, soft hand-rubbed look and feel.
Semi and Fully Custom Work:
All of our designs can be customized in every way - size, color, species etc. We can also do fully custom work for you based on our design or on artwork you supply to us. We can work with you to bridge the gap from inspiration to finished product. Attentive to your personal vision, together we mold the design that is as unique as your fingerprint. All manufacturing is done in our own studio and is presented to the local installer with all necessary information for ease of installation.
