Wood Flooring Choices

At Historic Floor, we produce, custom design and distribute an extensive line of wide plank flooring in the areas of newly harvested, salvaged, antique and reclaimed flooring. These materials are available in both solid and engineered hardwood floors.

Wine Barrel™ White Oak is the result of materials that are discarded during the selection process of producing barrel staves for wine and whiskey barrels. Missouri is the largest producer of this material due to the preferred white oak that the Ozark region produces. We curate these materials to produce a rustic floor.
