Blue pine flooring adds shabby chic to this French boutique

By KC

Marguerite, a charming French boutique in Portland's Sellwood neighborhood, uses our blue pine flooring and paneling to add rustic-yet-refined style to its aesthetics-driven space. 

The flooring was installed in a remarkable herringbone pattern, and the ceiling paneling was given a white-washed finish to soften the lines and illuminate the ceiling.

Many individuals, upon hearing that pine is a "softwood," are concerned about its long-term durability when used as flooring.  Marguerite's enduring beauty proves that with the right care and maintenance, blue pine flooring will look and perform great for many years, even in high-traffic spaces like this retail shop.
