The Engineered Waterways Collection


After World War I, the Gowanus Canal in Brooklyn became the nation’s busiest commercial canal, which admittedly took an environmental toll on its water. Today it has become one of the nation’s great restorative success stories as there are multiple initiatives underway to increase the water quality of the Gowanus Canal. Our 5’ red oak wire brushed engineered Gowanus floor has a tight wood grain amidst deep brown and gray tones that pay tribute to this historic canal.

The Engineered Waterways Collection

Throughout history, waterways have been an essential way to travel and transport goods. While natural waterways like rivers have always been preferred, sometimes they cannot be found where you need them. This collection - finished with an aluminum oxide - pays tribute to the knowledge, skill and expert engineering needed to create such a waterway by combining an engineered base with a wire brushing texture that gives the grain of the wood a three dimensional look.
