This Color is Metro AF

Hello hipsters, millennials, whatevers! We carry Benjamin Moore’s Color of the Year 2019 – Metropolitan AF, a neutral warm grey that goes with pretty much anything. We have been busy pairing the color up with some of our favorite surfaces to create some stylish vignettes that bridge subtlety with sexy AF (see our vignette below!). Metropolitan city dwellers, suburban socialites, and mountaintop men alike will all be well served by this bi-partisan color that arrives in the form of Lapitec, Durat, Koskisen, and PaperStone surfaces for furnishing, tables, counters and cabinetry.

Moving Up – We Have A New Office!

Sandy is in organizational heaven and the label maker has never been tested like this before. The CaraGreen showroom got a massive upgrade, and is still a work in progress, but we now have so much more space to show off our amazing products! Finally co-located with our warehouse, we have loads more space for people, inventory, and samples. We are also doing installs with our materials so you can see them in action. PaperStone desks, Lapitec conference tables, Kirei EchoPanel acoustic solutions, reSAWN Timber charred clad walls, bamboo flooring, Plyboo desks, and more! To make an appointment to come by and check out all our products, please call 919.929.3009.

Indoor and Outdoor Man Caves

Cellar dwellers can rejoice as the man cave comes to the backyard in the form of the outdoor kitchen. Big Green Eggs, Traegers, and Webers are flanked by some of the most durable surfaces imaginable. Fire pits and fireplaces are getting high-end upgrades with new textures and claddings that are far more attractive and interesting than traditional dull stone that had a foothold in outdoor kitchens for decades.

Come see our booth (#2862) at the International Woodworking Fair in Atlanta, GA, August 22-25 to see our installation of indoor and outdoor man caves using PaperStone, CharredStone, Lapitec, reSAWN Charred Timber, and GatorSkins. There will be a chance to win a Big Green Egg to get you started!
