The Marilyn Denis Show, Wow with Wood

Wow with Wood
Our Surfaces Featured on The Marilyn Denis Show

Two weeks ago Andrew Pike – expert designer for The Marilyn Denis Show – hosted a segment called “Wow with Wood” where he featured four of our eco-friendly wall surfaces.

We love his choices! All of these surfaces are made from upcycled or reclaimed wood. And all of them will definitely transform any space! Watch the segment here.

New! Windfall Lumber Surfaces
We’ve Got Samples

We’re very excited about a new addition to our showroom: Windfall Lumber wood products!

Windfall Lumber’s collection of reclaimed, salvaged and FSC-certified architectural wood products include table tops, countertops, architectural wall panels and floors. Combining live-edge, end grain, side grain and full planks with unique details such as inlay metalwork, waterfall legs and telephone phone edging, their surfaces showcase the inherent natural beauty of wood.

Cover it Up
Wall Surfaces Aren’t Just for Walls

We’ve said it before, but we’ll say it again: we LOVE when our clients get creative with our products.

Skateboard Wall Tiles Vancouver

In this case, the homeowner installed our skateboard wall tiles on two barn-style doors in their Vancouver home. The sharp contrast of the white walls with the colourful tiles adds instant punch to this contemporary space. + More photos

BC Hydro Power Smart Home

The talented team at Jamie Banfield Design has done it again!

Last month, they designed the BC Hydro Power Smart Home at the Vancouver Home + Garden Show. The home featured many energy efficient and eco-friendly technologies and products, including our classicBRICK wall surface.

New Year, New Inspiration

Eco Floor Store Design Showroom in Surrey, BC

New Year, New Floor, New Walls
Design Showroom Makeover!

We love change! If you’re a regular at our design showroom, you’ve probably noticed. And with the start of a new year, we just couldn’t resist updating our space.

We replaced the flooring in our entrance with durable vinyl planks installed in a stunning chevron pattern. On the walls, we added a gallery of all of our wall surfaces. We love the new space!

If you’re looking for inspiration for your 2016 projects, don’t be shy! Swing out to our design showroom and browse BC’s largest eco-friendly floor and wall surface showroom.

Custom Signage Design & Build
Getting Creative with Wall Surfaces

Blenz Coffee recently asked us to design and build a sign for a few of their new locations, including Calgary, Richmond and Surrey. Signage? Yes, we do that too!

Custom Retail Signs, Surrey BC

Using our textured cork wall surface in a brick pattern, we created a unique sign. Cut to a custom shape then laser engraved, the new sign suits the coffee shops’ updated brand.

Whether our wall surfaces are used as the backdrop to your own sign or used in the making of the actual sign, it’s up to you!

Our Elves Were Busy
Engineered Hardwood Floors in North Surrey

Did you know that many people ask Santa for new floors? So much so he often contracts out the work to our little elves! 😉

One of our Christmas projects was the installation of American Guild engineered hardwood floors in a home in North Surrey. We love the different colour tones and the variation from plank to plank.

Go Beyond the Surface: December 2015

Projects of Christmas Past

The Eco Floor Store, Surrey Showroom,

A Look at Some of our Favourite Projects

It’s been another fabulous year thanks to our wonderful clients.

Whether we’re working with homeowners, interior designers or builders, it’s always a pleasure seeing spaces transformed by our eco-friendly surfaces! We thought we’d share some of our favourite projects from this past year. It wasn’t an easy task, but here are a few that stand out.

District Main in Vancouver

One of the trends we noticed this year was the use of multiple wall surfaces in one space. Interior designers didn’t shy away from combining different materials and colours to create stunning spaces.

District Main Vancouver Lobby Lounge

One of those memorable spaces is the lobby lounge at the District Main Residences. Designed to be a multi-functional space for residents, we installed three of our wall surfaces: reclaimed barn wood wall tiles, Stikwood and recycled newsprint wallpaper.

Outdoor Playground in West Vancouver

While we may not have had the opportunity to play in this private playground, we had a lot of fun helping VictorEric Design create a fun outdoor space for the homeowner’s children.


We installed Dinoflex NuVista tiles for this outdoor playground. We hope it was a well-used area of the home this past summer!

Love It or List It Vancouver

It’s pretty much guaranteed that any time we do a project with celebrity interior designer Jillian Harris it will make our favourites list – her projects are always so stunning!

Love It or List It Vancouver, Flexible Stone Veneer

On our third appearance of the W Network’s hit TV show Love It or List It Vancouver, we supplied and installed our flexible stone veneer to help completely transform a living room. The before and after photos of this home don’t even look like the same home – incredible.

Birkenstock Store Signage in Singapore

2015 was the year of signage! We worked with many retailers to help supply wall surfaces that they used as a backdrop to their corporate logo. One of our favourites is the very smart design for Birkenstock in Singapore.

Cork Feature Wall at Berkenstock

We supplied outside burl cork wall tiles. Not only does the material draw attention to the cork used in the soles of the famous footwear, but it also provides acoustical benefits for a comfortable shopping experience.

BC Hydro Power Smart Dream Home

Featured at the Vancouver Home + Design Show, the BC Hydro Power Smart Dream Home is another example of an interior design team that likes to pack a lot of punch in every space.

Beehive Cork Wall Surface in Turquoise

Featuring four of our eco-friendly walls surfaces – classicBRICK, Stikwood, beehive cork tiles and a moss wall – this small home is a great example of why it works to combine surfaces. (Because it looks awesome!)

Wool Carpets in Vancouver

This year, we had the pleasure to supply and/or install hundreds of thousands of square feet of flooring for residential and commercial projects throughout the Lower Mainland and beyond.

TELUS Garden, Vancouver

We’ve worked on some tiny projects and some very (very!) big ones. For the LEED Platinum certified TELUS Garden in Vancouver, we supplied over 100,000 sq. ft. of eco-friendly wool carpets. Wow!!
