Shou Sugi Ban
Shou Sugi Ban.
That is so much fun to say!
(Go ahead. Say it again.) Shou Sugi Ban.
So what is it? It’s the Japanese art of charring wood. Preserving it using fire. Blackening.
Have you noticed that Matte Black is the new black in design? Let’s be honest....did it ever really go away?
Pops and accents of that Japanese charred inspiration are everywhere: Lighting, black stainless, window trims and doors, cabinets, hardware, faucets, and paint.
It’s timeless like the LBD (little black dress.)
Well black is back in a big way. Rest assured, Shaw Floors always has you covered in classic noir from a charred looked in Fired Beauty by Anderson Tuftex.
To black geometrics in Geoscape
To sleek rectified porcelain in Manhattan
To retro basketweave in Del Ray
To our deepest darkest yummiest black in Park Avenue Herringbone color Cabot (swoon!)
Shaw Floors color of the year Gold Rush is extra special mixed with black. How are you using black? As an accent? Going bold? Making a statement? Tag us at #psshawfloors #shawfloors so we can see your work!
