Styles

Orient is a unique product that can create either a sleek modern look or an old world rustic look, depending on the application.

Durum™ is made from wheat straw, which is also considered a rapidly renewable resource. It is 100% formaldehyde free. Durum is made from approximately 70% post agricultural wheat waste product. Durum creates a warm organic and very natural look.
