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.
