Irvington, N.J.—Real Antique Wood, the New Jersey-based company known for custom reclaimed wood décor, was this year’s recipient of the National Wood Flooring Association’s (NWFA)Wood Floor of the Year award under the Best Limited Species category. The award was presented at the NWFA 2015 Wood Flooring Expo in St. Louis, Mo., in April.
“We’re thrilled that so many people are enthusiastic about the project,” said Gary Horvath, co-owner of Real Antique Wood. “It’s one that we’ve been excited to share and it perfectly demonstrates the type of work we pride ourselves on. We can’t believe the international interest this project has attracted—from South Africa to Israel.”
The winning design features walnut slabs from fallen trees during Hurricane Sandy in 2013. After three years of kiln drying, the wood was moved to the site of the project in Pompton Plains, N.J., for installation.
