Greenbridge Live Here Lounge Features EcoFusion and Meld

Greenbridge Condominiums' sales office, dubbed the Live Here Lounge, features EcoFusion flooring and Meld countertops from CaraGreen. The space was designed by Sitzer Spuria Studios to reflect the sustainable values of the multi-use development. EcoFusion floors are Color Fusion Strand Woven bamboo in color Morning Mist. EcoFusion uses thru-color technology to dye bamboo strands using pure plant-based pigments. The technology dramatically increases the life cycle of the floor as dents and deep scratches do not require repair as color appears throughout the wear layer. Meld Micro, in color #61 Cement, was used for counters which contains 70% recycled content. Other sustainable features include scraplights by graypants which are crafted from recycled cardboard and Paperstone countertops.

CaraGreen Open House Recap

Our Open House earlier this month received a great response. Thanks go out to all of the architects and designers who stopped in to see our updated showroom, experience our sustainable products, and converse about business. And, thanks to Torzo and EcoFusion reps, Waid Whatley and Mark Kolbe, respectively, for making the trip to North Carolina to join our event and share their expertise.

Our new showroom was redesigned to emphasize larger samples and product education. Our guests were complimentary of the new experience and some shared that it was easy to visualize applications and installations. If you didn't make it, and you'd like to visit, please drop us a note and we'll give you a personal showing.

Tiikeri Bar in CharBar No. 7 In Charlotte, NC

A new CharBar No. 7 just opened in Charlotte, NC and features a TorZo Tiikeri bar top in Bronze. Designer Carrie Frye from Studio Fusion said they selected Tiikeri to "complement the other finish selections and to provide an interesting and unique texture." She added that "there are only so many durable finishes that you can use for a bar and Tiikeri is interesting and unexpected." CharBar No. 7 strives to be the best neighborhood bar around. They are focused on providing a comfortable place to bring the kids for dinner or a spot to hang out and watch sports with buddies. The interior contributes to this relaxed atmosphere. Studio Fusion used horizontal reclaimed wood paneling behind the bar and Tiikeri as the workhorse bar surface. The two materials work well with one another and give CharBar No. 7 warmth and dimension.

New UltraTouch+ Sound Control System

The makers of UltraTouch recycled denim insulation have just introduced a new product, UltraTouch+ Sound Control System, which has increased sound isolation. Combining high density denim batt insulation and high density denim sound dampening strips, UltraTouch+ is an acoustic solution in a bag. UltraTouch+ is made from high-quality natural fibers which contain inherent qualities that provide extremely effective sound isolation, while still providing energy efficient thermal performance. UltraTouch+ contains no chemical irritants and requires no warning labels when compared to traditional fiberglass insulation. There are no VOC concerns when using UltraTouch+, as it is safe for you and the environment. In addition to providing superior performance, UltraTouch+ is also easy to install. The high density batt insulation is perforated for easy sizing and the high density sound dampening strips attach to the stud faces with either staples or adhesive.
