In Praise of Heart Pine
Heart pine flooring is beautiful and refinishing and repairing its surface adds value to older homes. When reclaimed wood is added to new structures, the sense of place and warmth is immediate. So, in a restoration project, keep the heart pine and honor it. The next generation will thank you.
Ever wonder more about the broader context to heart pine’s value and environmental back story? Writer and environmental advocate Janisse Ray, author of Ecology of a Cracker Childhood, offers this compelling context via film about Southern forests. Nashville Interiors is an advocate for reclaiming and repurposing. We encourage you to watch this film and learn more about our Southern environmental challenges.
