A Meeting of the Boards

MAT 19
In the family room, sculpted wood doors by the fireplace make a dramatic statement in contrast with the minimalist decor. Woodworker/Artist Michael Coffey has an eye for organic forms and woodwork that suits a room perfectly. “This piece of woodworking may symbolize the project’s essence, with its fluid strokes and vivid personality.”

Matarazzo Dinner 2
When Sagewood Construction redesigned this four-story prewar townhouse a few steps from Central Park in New York City – with architect Arthur Casas at the helm – Oscar Ono floors were installed throughout for visual unity. The selection was Gris Conciergerie, a modern gray, in 10 ¼ – inch width planks, the perfect foil for an open, modern design.

Wood flooring stands the test of time – think of the oak and pine floors still intact after 100 or more years in homes the world over. How many families have walked those stairs, polished those planks? How many women have danced on the forgiving wood, twirling their party skirts in front of a mirror?

Now, though, there’s luxury wood, such as the collection from Oscar Ono flooring, the famous French luxury brand. With showrooms from Paris to Hong Kong, and several in Miami and New York, the upscale company also has a commitment to ecology. Its wide world of flooring is Forest Stewardship Council certified, meaning the wood comes from responsibly managed forests. Color and finish choices are extensive, and stairs with Oscar Ono wood are fit for any grand entrance.
