Washington, D.C.—The Real American Hardwood Coalition (RAHC), the domestic hardwood industry’s consumer promotion initiative, recently launched its new Build Your World advertising campaign to promote Real American Hardwood flooring, cabinetry, furniture and millwork. In partnership with Magnolia Network, the integrated, digital campaign will run through January 29, 2024.
“An advertising campaign on this scale is a first for the American hardwood industry,” said Michael Martin, president and CEO of the National Wood Flooring Association (NWFA). “For decades, misinformation has spread and the industry has seen market share slip away to alternative products that offer the wood look, without any of the benefits of real wood. Through the Build Your World campaign, our industry is showing how Real American Hardwood products offer unmatched aesthetics, natural durability, and lasting value—as well as why they are healthier for our homes and environment. And Magnolia Network is the perfect partner to share these stories.”
Developed by CANVAS United, the campaign relates the authenticity and attributes of Real American Hardwood products to the uniqueness and lifestyles of consumers. Five different vignettes capture the spirit of individuality in real-life settings, encouraging consumers to envision how they can build their world with hardwood.
“As long-time partners to the RAHC, we’re excited to see the Build Your World campaign launch,” said Mark Lainas, president of CANVAS United. “We’re particularly proud of this campaign’s capacity to highlight both the emotional and rational benefits of hardwood. Leveraging entertaining yet poignant storytelling in the creative will feel relatable to consumers across the country and allows us to showcase not just the beauty of American hardwoods, but the lasting value of the products.”
The ad campaign will run on the Magnolia Network channel, as well as on Magnolia and discovery+ digital streaming platforms. The campaign also includes digital and social media components.
