Longleaf Pine from the Southern U.S. was shipped North in increasing volumes following the Civil War, and became the standard for commercial and large residential structures – unique in it’s hardness, stability, fire resistance and large dimensional sizes. It’s role in residential finish work, especially flooring was often termed “Comb Grade”, with it’s subtle pin stripe figure of dense growth rings. “Comb Grade” is more than a faithful reproduction – it’s the actual old growth species – maintaining its unique provenance, quality and grade.

Color and Surface
Longleaf Pine is characterized by rich amber tones and a striking uneven grain. It is largely free of knots, stress cracks and frequent nail holes, resulting in a more refined and formal look, that may serve either a more refined, modern or preservationist aesthetic, but that has found expression in a range of design visions.
