Bringing your vision to life is something we’re always in pursuit of when helping you select the perfect wood floor for your project. We understand the intrinsic value of inspirational spaces and the role they play in our lives. Seeing a creative vision realised throughout an entire space and how the product was used is something that we always marvel when getting to see a finished project. Each year we are privileged to be a part of many inspiring projects across North America and around the globe - Explore a curation of projects from this past year that inspired us through their creative expression, use of materials, and expert craftsmanship.
FIVE PEAKS LOOKOUT - OREGON WINE COUNTRY
A minimal marvel in the heart of Oregon’s wine country, Five Peaks Lookout invites the outside in. The cantilevered home calls on floor to ceiling fenestrations and naturalistic materials that let a sweeping view of the Cascades take centre stage. Paired with the home’s classic palette and effortless, almost Japanese simplicity, the wide plank flooring gives way to its clean, geometric lines.

URBAN INFLUENCE IN WHISTLER - WHISTLER, BC
Perched on a shallow lot with a steep rock face, this Whistler ski chalet showcases creative design with an urban edge. Working closely with Custom Building Network, Vancouver based design firm, Māk, brought the vision of this functional family home to life. Our Broadway European Oak flooring can be seen throughout the home and in the property’s show-stopping stacked staircase.
CLASSIC RIVERDALE RESIDENCE - MUSKOKA
Contemporary upgrades and expert use of texture bring the Riverdale residence in Muskoka, Ontario a step above the typical lakehouse aesthetic. Shiplap and board and batten exteriors call to mind classic waterfront homes while our Cape Cod White Oak and Dover European Oak add subtle colour to the crisp white on white interior.
MID CENTURY BEL AIR - LOS ANGELES
The beautiful mid century Bel Air home by Darx Studio; featured in the 2021 Plank Album. Dover European oak wide plank, in 8.7” widths, was installed throughout. The light tones of Dover harmonize with the minimal design, while its natural undertones and planed surface add gentle warmth and texture.
STONE SCHOOLHOUSE REVIVAL - GREY COUNTY
An old schoolhouse gets an unlikely new calling and a refreshing update thanks to an adventurous Toronto couple. Situated in Grey County, a rural enclave a couple hours outside of the city, this modest stone building once served as a school. With desks in the basement and one giant classroom, envisioning it as a functioning home took a little imagination.
818 STEWART BY SKB - SEATTLE
818 Stewart, located in downtown Seattle WA, by SKB Architects; featuring wide plank flooring with matching engineered stair treads handcrafted in NWP's custom shop.
