The expansive first level of the home needed an impressive foundation to set the stage. The design team chose Mohawk Industries’ Brookdale Soft Scrape tongue and groove flooring for several reasons. The five-inch-wide boards have a gracefully rustic texture beneath a polished finish worthy of the grand home. To satisfy the desire for responsibly obtained materials, Mohawk’s Greenworks stamp ensures the wood was sustainably harvested. Due to the low photosensitivity rating, the Cognac Maple color will stay true over the years, even in rooms flooded with natural light.
