    I have been looking at reclaimed flooring options for my living room for a while now.

    This is the first reclaimed option I have came across that looks NEW and still has the eco-friendly aspect the rest of the options offer.

    PERFECT COMBO in my book.

    I just finished talking with them and was impressed with the fact that they called me after I asked for a sample of Iroko. It’s not available at this time, so they were nice enough to go through the other species I was interested in. I got a quote too and my sample of Maple is on its way. I’m excited too, the price was within my budget.

    Just checked out the site. As eco-conscious as I am, I never realized that flooring makers didn’t use all the lumber that was available. I’m happy that something like Staybull exists. It’s not as costly as I feared given that they’re the only company making a product like this. I mean let’s face it…some eco-friendly flooring runs upwards of $30 a square foot. At least this company has options!
