St. Louis — The National Wood Flooring Association announced the winners of its 2014 Wood Floor of the Year contest during its Wood Flooring Expo in Nashville, Tenn. The winning entries were announced during an awards dinner held on April 18.

The Wood Floor of the Year awards were developed to encourage and recognize innovative craftsmanship and design in wood flooring installations. Since the program began in 1990, more than 200 awards have been presented to NWFA member companies throughout the United States and Canada, as well as in Russia and Finland.
