The decking material in the Spiegel Catalog Warehouse complex served as the previous life of much of this flooring; it is very likely that in its heyday an order from the catalog would have passed over this very wood; with today’s titanic retail markets it is easy to forget how important the catalog warehouse was to a bygone era; the catalog warehouses have been deconstructed and this pine is available as flooring; the wood has a classic pine look with lots of red knots, reddish brown heart wood interspersed with lighter colored sapwood; in addition to these traditional elements there is a gripping nail hole pattern with holes generally surrounded by ferrous bleed to attest to the wood’s previous life.
