Supplier Profile: Finium FriendlyWall

Posted on June 6, 2012 by Jared

In January, we went to Surfaces 2012 in Las Vegas to find unique environmentally friendly flooring and wall surfaces. It was there we fell in love with the equally friendly folks at Finium, a Canadian manufacturer of prefinished hardwood floor moldings and decorative products.

Love at First Sight

When we hear phrases like “made in Canada”, “solid wood”, “FSC-certified” and “VOC free” our green ears perk up. And when we see walnut, maple and American red oak in stunning natural stains, we go a little weak in the knees…

That’s how we instantly fell in love with Finium FriendlyWall panels: they’ve got the looks AND the substance, the perfect surface if you ask us!

We’re happy to announce that Finium FriendlyWall panels are now available at The Eco Floor Store. Swing by our design showroom in Surrey to see all the different stains and design possibilities or contact us to schedule a Lunch & Learn. We pretty much guarantee you’ll have the same butterflies we did!
