“Mushroom wood” is the name of a specific type of reclaimed wood, sourced from mushroom processing facilities. And despite the primitive look, the boards spent about a half century of service in curing mushrooms. Through that process, fungi/mushroom penetrated a layer of enriched dirt, and removed the early wood fibers, leaving a super-textured and earthy brown patina. Its as striking and graphic a wood surface as you’d find. Hemlock is favored for the process. The woods create entrancing accent walls.

Color and Surface
A range of light to dark browns within the aged surface. In direct contact with earth and minerals for decades, the woods absorb and develop a unique depth of color hues. Added to this is the remarkable texture that results from absorption of the softwood fibers by the funghi, leaving stirring peaks and valleys interspersed with protruding knots.
